External Penetration Testing

External  Penetration Testing

As part of a security assessment protocol, external penetration testing is necessary and needs to be conducted.

It involves “attacking” the security of a network system from an external or public source-without credentials or the appropriate rights to access a system.

External penetration testing is necessary for any organization to clearly identify any vulnerability that may be present, and that can be an exploitation vector, basically, all front facing internet access points, to the internet.

Why do you need  external penetration testing?

External Penetration Testing has several benefits:

1. To show whether there has been a Return on Investment of existing implemented security controls, such as firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems.
2. To detect weaknesses in a system or network that could allow host compromise.
3. To test an organization’s external monitoring and Incident Response (IR) capabilities.
4. To breach the target as an unauthorized user with varying levels of access, such as: hacker that works with internal information.
