This page has historically been used to boost vendor credibility by inserting overt or covert references, linking back to a vendor page. Currently there are two examples linking to vendor pages. The two examples below have been added in historically by vendors. One is a link to a vendor's service catalogue, the other to a vendors training courses.

The Penetration Testing Execution Standard
The penetration testing execution standard consists of seven 7 main sections. These cover everything related to a penetration test - from the initial communication and reasoning behind a pentest, through the intelligence gathering and threat modeling phases where testers are working behind the scenes in order to get a better understanding of the tested organization, through vulnerability research, exploitation and post exploitation, where the technical security expertise of the testers come to play and combine with the business understanding of the engagement, and finally to the reporting, which captures the entire process, in a manner that makes sense to the customer and provides the most value to it. This version can be considered a v1. As no pentest is like another, and testing will range from the more mundane web application or network test, to a full-on red team engagement, said levels will enable an organization to define how much sophistication they expect their adversary to exhibit, and enable the tester to step up the intensity on those areas where the organization needs them the most. Some of the initial work on "levels" can be seen in the intelligence gathering section. Following are the main sections defined by the standard as the basis for penetration testing execution:.
A penetration test , colloquially known as a pen test , pentest or ethical hacking , is an authorized simulated cyberattack on a computer system, performed to evaluate the security of the system;   this is not to be confused with a vulnerability assessment. The process typically identifies the target systems and a particular goal, then reviews available information and undertakes various means to attain that goal. A penetration test target may be a white box about which background and system information are provided in advance to the tester or a black box about which only basic information—if any—other than the company name is provided.
Focused on the inside threat, Pcysys' automated penetration-testing platform mimics the hacker's attack - automating the discovery of vulnerabilities and performing ethical exploits, while ensuring an undisrupted network operation. Detailed reports are produced together with proposed remediations, one step ahead of tomorrow's malicious hacker. It is critical to consistently check your security controls and defenses over time, rather than having periodic checkpoints.
