Penetration testing, or pentesting, emerges as a proactive strategy to identify and address vulnerabilities within digital systems. At SafeNet, we understand the importance of a comprehensive approach to penetration testing. In this blog post, we’ll delve into the different types of penetration testing and how SafeNet’s expertise can fortify your digital defenses.

Understanding Penetration Testing

What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration testing is a simulated cyber attack on a system, application, or network to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses. The goal is to assess the security posture and provide actionable insights to strengthen defenses.

Different Types of Penetration Testing

1. Network Penetration Testing

Network penetration testing focuses on assessing the security of an organization’s network infrastructure. SafeNet conducts thorough tests to identify vulnerabilities such as misconfigurations, weak passwords, and potential points of unauthorized access.

2. Web Application Penetration Testing

Web application penetration testing is specifically designed to evaluate the security of web applications. SafeNet examines the application’s code, functionality, and underlying infrastructure to identify vulnerabilities like SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and other potential risks.

3. Mobile Application Penetration Testing

As mobile applications become integral to digital interactions, their security is of paramount importance. SafeNet conducts mobile application penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities unique to mobile platforms, ensuring that your apps are secure and resilient.
