What is Penetration Testing?

Designed to mimic real life attack scenarios and carried out by Secarma's Certified Ethical Hackers, penetration testing comprises a full-scale assault on your network to test the ability of your systems. Also referred to as 'ethical hacking', and simply 'pen tests', a penetration test aims to identify entry points that could be exploited by hackers to gain unauthorised access.
