The CyberGRC penetration test is utilized to validate proper implementation of all remediation recommendations and strategies documented during the vulnerability assessment phase. Unlike the vulnerability assessment phase where our white hat staff passively identify vulnerabilities on the network without impacting the business, the penetration test is more aggressive and attempts to actually compromise the network environment. A penetration test validates your network can withstand attacks like denial of service and is not susceptible to exploitation tools used by the black hat intruders intent on damaging your brand. Any final vulnerabilities are identified from a more finite perspective and once removed, your network perimeter is considered hardened at that point in time. It is common for our white hat staff to completely breach a customer network during this phase and is the ultimate opportunity for training and creating a long term security strategy within the organization. This gives your team the ability to defend against common attack strategies such as malware, active directory breaches and post breach persistent connections to external attack servers which is vital to the success of your business.
