What is Penetration Testing (aka Pen Testing)?
Penetration testing, also known as pen testing, is a security assessment technique that simulates an attack on a computer network. The goal of penetration testing is to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in the system in order to determine if they could be exploited by a real attacker.
Penetration testing is an important part of any organization’s security posture. By identifying and fixing vulnerabilities, penetration testing can help protect organizations from cyberattacks.
