Existing network and web vulnerability assessment solutions produce vast amounts of data, often with false positives and inaccurate exploit matches. Many organizations have addressed this shortcoming through penetration testing. Penetration testing is ideal for targeted, live exploit testing and layered defense investigation.
Penetration testing evaluates an organization’s ability to protect its networks, applications, endpoints and users from external or internal attempts to circumvent its security controls to gain unauthorized or privileged access to protected assets. Test results validate the risk posed by specific security vulnerabilities or flawed processes, enabling IT management and security professionals to prioritize remediation efforts. By embracing more frequent and comprehensive penetration testing, organizations can more effectively anticipate emerging security risks and prevent unauthorized access to critical systems and valuable information.
The Core Attack Intelligence platform helps organizations validate vulnerabilities by:
- Identifying and exploiting critical OS, device, service, and application vulnerabilities.
- Conducting multi-threat surface investigations (web, mobile, network, wireless, etc).
- Demonstrating “what-if” attack analysis to replicate how an attacker would compromise a vulnerable system.
