Type of Pentesting Testing Strategies in UAE

External Testing

It targets a company’s externally visible servers or devices. The objective is to determine if an outside attacker can get in and how far they can get in once they’ve gained access.

Internal Testing

It mimics an inside attack behind the firewall by an authorized user with standard access privileges. It is useful for estimating how much damage a disgruntled employee could cause.

Blind Testing

It simulates a real attacker’s actions and procedures by severely limiting the information given to the person or team performing the test beforehand.

Double Blind Testing

One or two people within the organization might be aware a test is being conducted. Useful for testing an organization’s security monitoring and incident response procedures.

Target Testing

It is performed by the organization’s IT team and the penetration testing team. It’s referred to as a “lights turned on” approach because everyone can see the test being carried out.

Benefits of Regular Penetration Testing UAE

The importance of Pen Testing

Helps to identify and prioritize security risks
Penetration testing offers the security team insights on which areas or channels in your organisation is at risk and gives suggestions on which security tool will be best to invest for ensuring security. The pen test will help to discover several system weaknesses which you may have never thought about.

Manage vulnerabilities intelligently
Penetration test gives detailed information about the detected weaknesses in system and across channels. It provides information on actual and exploitable threats. Pen tests helps to identify the critical threats, less significant ones and false alerts this facilitates intelligent prioritization and remediation by the security team.

Supports proactive security approach
Businesses deploy a number of security tools and solutions to protect from security threats as there is no one solution to prevent breaches. Penetration testing leverages a proactive approach, revealing weaknesses so that the security team can identify the remediation needed and find if additional layer of security is needed.

Provides quality assurance checks
Pen test acts as a quality assurance check and helps to find out which security policies are most effective and which are providing the highest ROI.

Identify security strengths and weaknesses
Penetration test regularly puts the security infrastructure through different phases of attack and helps in identifying the strengths and weaknesses. This helps organisations to prepare for attacks and your organisation will be never caught off-guard.

Ensures compliance
Penetration testing ensures compliance and general auditing regulations. It helps auditors to assure that the security measures are deployed in place and are working effectively.
