Application security testing.
Application security testing, also known as AST, is performed on software applications with the purpose of finding flaws and vulnerabilities in such applications so that those programs may be made more resistant to security threats and cyber attacks.
Network penetration testing.
Authenticated and unauthenticated penetration testing are two types of network testing that are used in network penetration testing to locate and exploit vulnerabilities on an external and an internal network. After being stationed in a predetermined spot on the target network, penetration testers make an effort to carry out scans, exploits, and other operations in accordance with the objectives that were established beforehand.
Cloud-based system penetration tests
Cloud-Based System Penetration Tests help verify the safety of a cloud deployment, determine the total risk and possibility of each vulnerability, and make recommendations on how to make your cloud environment safer.
Internet of things (IoT) penetration tests.
The subtleties of the many Internet of Things devices are taken into consideration by pen testers, who examine each component as well as the interaction between the components. Pen testers are able to identify vulnerabilities in a system that could not have been discovered without the use of tiered methodologies, in which each layer is tested individually.
In the context of security breaches, social engineering refers to the practice of employing deceit as a method for gaining access to systems or information that may then be exploited for unethical reasons. Phishing schemes are the best illustration of this pattern of behavior. Phishing tools and emails specifically designed for a company are what penetration testers use to evaluate an organization’s defensive mechanisms, detection and reaction skills, uncover personnel who are vulnerable and identify security procedures that may use some improvement.
Physical security penetration testing.
Evaluating one’s physical security can illustrate the ways in which nefarious actors could physically obtain access to one’s facilities; testing one’s physical security helps to avoid such an incident from taking place.
