Net Pen Testing – Charleston (SC)

Many businesses in Charleston and across South Carolina are concerned about the increasing number of cyber-attacks happening locally and nationally. The increasing sophistication of phishing scams, ransomware, malware, and SQL injection attacks (SQLi) has raised significant concerns. The threat is substantial and applies to companies and municipalities of all sizes. This reality has compelled many to investigate proactive steps to ensure the company and municipality protect the data of its customers, vendors, and taxpayers.

An essential component of a robust cybersecurity program is network penetration testing. A simulated attack reveals various entry points and system weaknesses that cybercriminals can use to exploit, steal or hold essential data for ransom. A net pen test allows management to understand weaknesses and where changes are required. The result is the peace of mind that arises from a well-managed cybersecurity program.
