A penetration test is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely exploiting vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and applications, improper configurations or risky end-user behavior. These assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies.
Penetration tests are typically performed using manual or automated technologies to systematically compromise servers, endpoints, web applications, wireless networks, network devices, mobile devices and other potential points of exposure. First Light believes that performing these tests will measure the risks of your systems and their end users. Giving you the peace of mind that you're doing all you can do to keep your environment as safe as possible.
