Why Wireless and Web Pentesting
Web penetration testing, or web pen testing, is an important part of ensuring that applications are free of vulnerabilities that could lead to serious security breaches. Web pen testing is essential to application security because an automated Internet security test simply cannot find every type of vulnerability.
Web pen testing is typically a manual endeavor, with skilled penetration testers seeking to exploit weaknesses in software in the same way that cybercriminals do. As a manual procedure, penetration testing can be expensive and time-consuming. Where automated web scanning techniques can return results within hours, it may take weeks to complete web pen testing on a single application, and as a result, many organizations do not take advantage of the benefits of this application security technology.

What is Penetration Testing
A penetration test, or pen test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and application flaws, improper configurations, or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as end-user adherence to security policies.
Penetration testing is typically performed using manual or automated technologies to systematically compromise servers, endpoints, web applications, wireless networks, network devices, mobile devices and other potential points of exposure. Once vulnerabilities have been successfully exploited on a particular system, testers may attempt to use the compromised system to launch subsequent exploits at other internal resources, specifically by trying to incrementally achieve higher levels of security clearance and deeper access to electronic assets and information via privilege escalation.
Information about any security vulnerabilities successfully exploited through penetration testing is typically aggregated and presented to IT and network system managers to help those professionals make strategic conclusions and prioritize related remediation efforts. The fundamental purpose of penetration testing is to measure the feasibility of systems or end-user compromise and evaluate any related consequences such incidents may have on the involved resources or operations.
It might be helpful to think of penetration testing as trying to see if someone can break into your house by doing it yourself. Penetration testers, also known as ethical hackers, evaluate the security of IT infrastructures using a controlled environment to safely attack, identify, and exploit vulnerabilities. Instead of checking the windows and doors, they test servers, networks, web applications, mobile devices, and other potential entry points to find weaknesses.
