An ethical hacking or penetration testing evaluates an application’s or network’s ability to withstand attack. During a penetration test, an Evolution security professional (ethical hacker) will use the same tools and techniques as today’s cybercriminals to hack into your network or application. Such an exercise will open your eyes to vulnerabilities you didn’t know existed and the effects of exploitation.
Building on from the Evolution vulnerability scanning services which identify potential vulnerabilities or weak configurations within your organisation’s system using a tool set. Ethical hacking is largely a manual process performed by a human. A penetration tester will use tools as a part of their work, but they apply their human ingenuity to exploit vulnerabilities and illustrate what an attacker might be capable of when targeting a particular system.
Evolution’s penetration testing can target networks, applications and mobile solutions.
