Penetration Testing

Available for both external and internal systems, penetration testing subjects systems to real world attacks in an effort to gain access to systems and sensitive information. A penetration test is the next step beyond a vulnerability assessment. Often called the attack phase, a penetration test leverages the information found during a vulnerability assessment’s reconnaissance, discovery and scanning phases to identify vulnerabilities to exploit. SCA engineers will use various techniques including, but not limited to, manual techniques, automated tools, open source tools and custom tools which are tested in a sandbox environment prior to deployment.
