Penetration services proven to expose and eliminate threats

What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing or pen testing is designed to test a system, network, or web application to find gaps or vulnerabilities that have the potential to be exploited by an attacker or hacker. Penetration tests are critical to gaining a clear understanding of an organization’s gaps in security, the impact if those gaps are exploited in an attack, and a clear prioritized risk-based plan to address the vulnerabilities quickly and effectively.

The Benefits of Hitachi Systems Security Penetration Testing Service

Penetration tests provide a baseline assessment of potential threats to begin to reduce the overall risk in your environment in a structured, efficient way. Fundamentally, a pen test provides a list of vulnerabilities, a list of assets associated with the vulnerabilities, and most importantly the risk associated with the specific vulnerability.

The consistent and periodic service delivers:

Penetration Testing vs Vulnerability Assessments

To improve your security posture, should you start with a penetration test, a vulnerability assessment or schedule both?

The answer is both should be part of a threat and vulnerability management program because they have unique benefits. However, penetration tests simulate the actions of an attacker while vulnerability assessments catalog assets, assign a value to those assets, identify vulnerabilities, and prioritize remediating or addressing those vulnerabilities.

It makes sense to lay the groundwork to improve a security program with a vulnerability assessment and then test the newly fortified defense with a penetration test to ultimately create an ongoing process that incorporates both services.
