Security testing focuses on all the layers of your information system like database, infrastructure, access channels to keep it free from vulnerabilities.

Types of Security Testing

Vulnerability scanning

When you use a vulnerability scanner, it creates an inventory of all the systems that are connected to your network. The systems are usually servers, firewalls, switches, printers, laptops, containers, laptops, desktops, etc.

Security Scanning

It checks for security flaws by scanning the various elements of your network, application or device. Security scanning should be done regularly to keep your information secure.

Penetration Testing

It is the practice of testing an application, network system or a computer system to find vulnerabilities that potential attackers could exploit. Penetration testing is also called pen testing or ethical hacking. Organizations need to conduct penetration testing regularly so that they could gauge the weakness in the infrastructure, software and people.

Risk Assessment

When organizations carry out security risk assessment, it helps them look at their application portfolio from the perspective of an attacker. The focus is to prevent application security defects and vulnerabilities.

Security Audit

It is an evaluation of the company's security and information system based on a set of established criteria. Security audits help protect against a data threat event, involving technical reviews on configurations, technologies, infrastructure, etc.

Customer's data is sacred. If you ever lose their data or put it in a position of danger by following sloppy IT security protocols, it will be hard to regain their trust. There can be no compromises. By ensuring that you follow all the above techniques, you will be able to have a modicum of confidence in your security systems.
