Security measures like vulnerability assessments are paramount in protecting your organization's IT infrastructure. These assessments provide in-depth analysis and review of your security weaknesses, identifying areas of improvement to reduce further vulnerabilities. There are several different scans available and can include internal or external scans, database scans, environmental and network assessments, internet scans, and web application or host-based analysis.
Penetration testing refers to a simulated cybersecurity attack against your IT infrastructure or network in order to discover gaps or vulnerabilities within your environment. These tests can cover a number of different application systems, from front end or back end servers, web application firewalls, application protocol interfaces (API), and other areas where code injection attacks may occur.
