Penetration testing is also known as Pentest, is a simulated cyber attack against the computer system, web application or network performed to evaluate the exploitable vulnerabilities in the system. The purpose of simulated attack is to find any weak spots that attackers could gain unauthorized access to the systems feature and data. The pen test can be automated with software applications or performed manually.

The main objective of the pen test is to find the security weakness. It will also highlights if there’s a weakness in the company’s security policies. The insights from the simulated attack can be used to mitigate or patch the detected exploitable vulnerabilities. Penetration testing is sometime called as white hat attack, as because the good guys are attempting to break in. Organizations should perform pen test at least once per 12-15 months to ensure the security of the data.

There is a wide variety of penetration testing and it can be categorized on the basis of either, the knowledge of the target or the position of the pentester. Each of the test option providing information that can dramatically improve the security posture of the organization.
