Penetration Testing

Penetration testing is often provided in addition to a Security Assessment.

A penetration test is an active, authorized attempt to simulate what an attacker might do when trying to compromise your networks and systems. A wide variety of security assessment tools are available to assist with penetration testing.  Many security experts discourage use of the same penetration tester repeatedly to subject systems to a greater variety of tools and skills.  Depending on the scope of the engagement, a penetration test may include physical avenues of attack as well as digital methods.

After the penetration test is performed, MEI Security produces a report indicating any successful attacks, system strengths and weaknesses with specific recommendations for improvement.
