Pen testing to essential to ensure security of your complex IT infrastructure and protect against cyberattacks.

The sheer size and complexity of enterprise-level systems make them vulnerable to various types of cyber threats, including advanced persistent threats (APTs), insider attacks, and phishing scams. Regular pen testing helps identify vulnerabilities in the system, assess the effectiveness of your organisation’s security measures, and ensure compliance with industry regulations and standards.

It also allows for proactive measures to be taken to address security weaknesses before a real attack occurs, thus reducing the risk of data breaches, financial losses, and damage to a company’s reputation. Furthermore, pen testing can provide valuable insights into the effectiveness of security policies, training programs, and incident response plans, allowing for continuous improvement and refinement of the overall security strategy. Overall, pen testing is an essential component of a large enterprise’s cybersecurity program and should be conducted regularly to ensure the protection of sensitive data and intellectual property.

QUESTIONS? HERE ARE THE ANSWERS

What is pen testing?

Pen testing is a process of testing computer systems, networks, and applications to identify vulnerabilities that attackers could exploit. It involves simulating real-world attacks to determine the effectiveness of an organisation’s security defences.

What are the benefits of pen testing?

Pen testing can help organisations identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in their security defences before attackers can exploit them. It can also help organisations meet compliance requirements and improve their overall security posture.

What are the types of pen testing?

he types of pen testing  include network testing, web application testing, mobile application testing, social engineering testing, and wireless network testing

What is the difference between autonomous, automated and manual pen testing?

Endida’s autonomous pen testing uses tools and AI to scan systems for vulnerabilities and exploits without the need for time consuming human intervention.

Automated testing simply automates certain tasks, it does not “think” like AI does.

Manual pen testing involves actual human testers who use their knowledge to identify vulnerabilities, however this is limited to their own training & knowledge. They may miss something if they do not know it is an issue.

How often should an organisation conduct pen testing ?

The frequency of pen testing  should be determined by factors such as the organisation’s risk profile, the sensitivity of its data, and the nature of its operations. Generally, organisations should conduct pen testing at least once every 6 months and after any significant changes to their systems or networks.

What are some common challenges with pen testing?

Some common challenges with pen testing  include false positives, lack of resources or expertise, and resistance from stakeholders who may view the testing as a disruption to their operations.

With Endida’s service, all of these issues are eliminated.

What is the difference between pen testing and vulnerability scanning?

Pen testing  involves simulating real-world attacks to identify vulnerabilities and assess the effectiveness of an organisation’s security defences. Vulnerability scanning is an automated process that identifies known vulnerabilities in systems and networks but does not test the effectiveness of security controls.

What should an organisation do after a pentest?

After a pen-test, the experts here at Endida will present you with a full, in-depth report along with recommendations as well as the professional services needed to fix them.  We then prioritise and address the vulnerabilities identified, develop a remediation plan, and conduct regular follow-up testing to ensure that the vulnerabilities have been addressed.
