 Security Testing





So what are the risks involved to you and your company if your network is unsecured? Though there are countless risks, fundamentally they affect the following four aspects of your network:

    • System integrity
    • Confidentiality
    • Data integrity
    • Continuous service

Knowing the risks to your network is only half the battle. Protecting them against these risks is your first step towards actually securing your network.

Network security testing should be an integral part of any security policy. If you spend the time to prepare your enterprise against attacks, you need to implement the appropriate checks and balances to maintain it.

Without testing on a regular basis, processes that you implement now may quickly become outdated. The security of your systems changes from day to day. Your Database Administrator might upgrade the version of the operating system running on the central database server, without realizing that this new version has several security holes. By testing, you can be confident that your systems are protected against attacks.

Network security testing also adds a layer of defense against the outside attack. Typically, a network security testing tool will gather data about a target network, identify the potential vulnerabilities, and produce a report for the Security Administrator to action. If a cracker cannot gather enough data on the target network, and the network has been protected against potential vulnerabilities that the cracker may infiltrate, then the cracker’s work becomes a lot more difficult and your network remains safe. With network security testing, you can also run these simulated attacks repeatedly.
