Why do you need External Penetration Test?
An external security test is an important part of your cyber security program. It helps you identify vulnerabilities in your organisation that could be exploited by Internet-based attackers. External pentests allow you to assess the risk that identified vulnerabilities pose to your business. You can protect your company from cyber-attacks by identifying and mitigating these risks.
Based on the Ponemon Institute’s report, average cost of a data breach around the world has been calculated at $4.35m. However, these numbers are changing every year given the risk of data breaches due to increased attach surfaces.
What can you gain from External Penetration Testing?
External Penetration Testing can help you with a better understanding of your organisation’s security posture. By identifying security issues during security assessment, the customer is aware of their attack surface on the Internet.
