What is Penetration Testing and Why Does Your Business Need it?


What is Penetration Testing and Why Does Your Business Need it?

Unfortunately, just having anti-virus software and a firewall, as well as assuming that your business is secure, is not enough to fully protect your company. Penetration testing identifies security vulnerabilities and weaknesses that a hacker might use to penetrate into your business. As well as identify possible entry points, test your organisation’s security policy, malware and the compliance requirements adherence. It also helps test your organisation’s ability to identify and respond to security incidents.

 

The reasons your company needs penetration testing are:

  • Prepare you for the unknown and unforeseen. Small businesses can be popular targets of hackers with over 40-50% of small businesses facing some form of cyber attack.

  • Preparation advantage giving you an advantage to identify, patch and fix vulnerabilities before cybercriminals can find them.

  • Cost of hacks and attacks is high and increasing.

  • Opportunity to strengthen your cybersecurity strategy and plans.

  • Confirm your compliance with security regulations.
