With organizations being frequently beleaguered by security threats and vulnerabilities that can hinder their
business capacities and overall productivity, security solutions have become imperative. Not only should the
defense mechanisms protect against current threats, but they must also provide protection from future
threats and vulnerabilities should also be anticipated. Most organizations hence opt in for security solutions
that can manage and monitor the security network and systems on an ongoing basis.


Perimeter defense is the first component that must be contemplated, when designing a secure network. This
is where network penetration testing comes into action as it enables organizations to run the tests over the
internet easily. Penetration testing can reveal to what extent the security of IT systems is threatened by
attacks by hackers, and whether the security measures in place are currently capable of ensuring IT security.
Network penetration testing also known as ethical hacking, carries out tests on by a group of security experts
who have been sanctioned by the organization to hack the network in an initiative to recognize the probable
vulnerabilities. As and when the vulnerabilities are discovered it becomes easy for the enterprise to
safeguard itself against any further network attacks.


Such a security assessment can be used to evaluate the security of the network and also keep the network
from hackers and other illegal sources. Network penetration testing assesses the security risks exposed by
computer systems operating on a network. Networks with weak security can allow attackers to penetrate
network defenses and gain access to internal networks and critical systems. Regular network penetration
testing can reduce the threat of these attacks, and save time and money in the aftermath of a security
breach. Security penetration testing is very vital for small and big businesses alike. With confidential
customer data to be protected by intruders, it comes vital to perform rigorous network security penetration
testing to ensure highest safety levels.


Network penetration testing typically works by replicating an attack on the network and making a valuation
of the weakness of active networks. By carrying out a network penetration test, you go one step ahead of
others in securing your customer's data. The information can be of various types, ranging from employee
information, customer details, down to company's confidential report. Performing regular penetration tests
enables your company to comply with industry standards and also help to identify and remediate high-risk
security vulnerabilities before they are exploited by malicious attackers.
Look for a service provider who can ensure automated testing along with security expert analysis. For
businesses looking for hosting solutions in the data center, there are several service providers who are
geared up to deliver to the best service standards.
