Security Penetration Testing is a method of evaluating the security of a computer system or network by simulating an attack from malicious outsiders (who do not have an authorized means of accessing the organization's systems) and malicious insiders (who have some level of authorized access). The process involves an active analysis of the system for any potential vulnerabilities that could result from poor or improper system configuration, both known and unknown hardware or software flaws, and operational weaknesses in process or technical countermeasures. We carry this from the position of a potential attacker and can involve active exploitation of security vulnerabilities to help your organization mitigate those vulnerabilities before they are exploited by a real intruder/attacker.
