Penetration Testing in Chicago
Security professionals hate surprises. The last thing you want to learn is that your security defenses aren't sufficient against an amateur hacker. With an insecure system, the vulnerabilities are straightforward to exploit by a beginner or "script kiddie". Systems can be taken offline and data can be stolen by a novice. You need to verify your defenses with penetration testing.
How do you avoid these surprises from the bad guys? You need to test your environment leveraging ethical experts to make sure the bad guys stay out. Equilibrium's penetration testing services will help you sleep better at night. We are experts in the same tools, tactics and methodologies used by the bad guys.
Penetration testing (also called pen testing) is the practice of testing a computer system, network or web application to find vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit. The main objective of penetration testing is to proactively prove out weaknesses in systems and controls in order to fix them on your schedule.
A penetration testing can also be used to test an organization's security policy compliance, its employees' security awareness and the organization's ability to identify and respond to security incidents.
Equilibrium has expertise with many variations of penetration testing. Below are some of the options available.
