A third party offers an unbiased, realistic measure of your existing security and provides expert remediation to help mitigate risk and align with best security practices.
The benefit of penetration testing is increased security and security awareness for your organization. It will provide you with in-depth, actionable reporting and analysis to facilitate your planning, strategies, and provide practical solutions to your security deficiencies. You will learn the attacks your systems and networks are vulnerable to. You will understand whether or not your current defenses would protect your organization against viable attacks.
Your high-risk vulnerabilities will be exposed. Possibly the most important benefit of penetration testing, using an external party, is that the knowledge gained will help both management and staff to see the “security truth” and will dispel myths of “it couldn’t happen to us.”
