What are pentests and does MobieTrain performs them?


Pentests, short for penetration tests, are essentially simulated cyberattacks on a computer system or network. They're performed by ethical hackers, security professionals who use the same tools and techniques as malicious attackers, but with a legitimate purpose: to identify weaknesses in a system's defenses before real attackers can exploit them.

Here's a breakdown of what pentests involve:

  • Authorized Attack: Pentests are always carried out with the permission of the organization being tested. This ensures the organization can learn from the findings and improve its security posture.
  • Finding Weaknesses: The goal of a pentest is to uncover vulnerabilities in the system that could be used by attackers to gain unauthorized access, steal data, or disrupt operations.
  • Mimicking Attackers: Penetration testers use a variety of tools and techniques to simulate real-world attacks. This might involve social engineering tactics, exploiting software bugs, or finding misconfigurations in the system.
  • Reporting Findings: After the pentest is complete, the testers provide a detailed report that outlines the vulnerabilities they found, the potential impact of those vulnerabilities, and recommendations for remediation.

MobieTrain performs regular pentest executed by specialized partners and their internal Quality Assurance department.
