Penetration Testing

Definition updated on November 2023

What is penetration testing?

An authorized simulated attack is carried out on a computer system as part of a penetration test (pen test) to assess its security. In order to identify and illustrate the financial effects of a system's vulnerabilities, penetration testers employ the same tools, strategies, and procedures as attackers. The majority of assaults that potentially endanger an organization are often simulated during penetration examinations. They can assess a system's resilience to attacks from legitimate and illegitimate places as well as from a variety of system functions.
