Ethical Hacking (also known as Penetration Testing) from Defendify uses certified “white hat” hackers, techniques, and state-of-the-art tools to attempt to breach your networks and gain access to your systems and data. Ethical Hacking is a safe and controlled method for uncovering deeper, company-wide security vulnerabilities that might get overlooked.
- Test data security defenses across networks, applications, and endpoints
- Verify the extent, potential impact, and risk level of vulnerabilities
- Get easy-to-understand risk reports with remediation recommendations
- Check the box for security regulation frameworks and mandate compliance
What's involved in Ethical Hacking?
Cybercriminals (“black hat” hackers) use a variety of methods and tools to regularly test the cyber defenses of companies, both large and small, for weak entry points to deploy their attack. Certified Ethical Hackers use similar techniques in a safe and controlled manner, doing no harm to your IT infrastructure or data. Ethical Hacking, or Penetration Testing, results in a detailed report on what vulnerabilities were discovered across your business, and how you can quickly fix any high-risk security gaps.
When to conduct Ethical Hacking
Ethical Hacking helps businesses maintain a strong cybersecurity posture and stay compliant with government, industry, vendor, and customer security regulations and mandates. It is recommended to employ ethical hacking techniques and run a penetration test at least once a year, but also after any major change to your network to ensure any changes to your IT resources do not lead to unintended risk.
