Penetration testing is much like ethical hacking, where testers attempt to break into a system to find exploitable vulnerabilities before malicious actors can use them. Vulnerabilities can include design flaws, configuration errors, or software bugs. All organizations, regardless of their scope or nature, can greatly benefit from penetration testing. Penetration testing focuses on the security of the specific area defined for testing.
