    New paper from Entrasys

    As described by techrepublic:
    DON'T LET YOUR PENETRATION TEST FAIL YOU

    No security solution is truly reliable until it is tested, which is why
    the security auditing industry is on the upswing. Many reputable
    organizations are available to simulate hacker attacks and intrusions into your
    system to better flesh out the flaws and limitations of your security
    measures. Ideally, these identified flaws could be corrected before a
    real-world hacker or virus maliciously and dangerously exploits your
    vulnerability. Yet even audited and improved systems fail every day and not just to
    new and different code threats and intrusion techniques. Many so-called
    "penetration tests" fail to gauge several key elements of your security
    solution, leaving you effectively ignorant of your system's weaknesses and,
    worse, leaving your administrators with a false sense of security.

    This free white paper outlines the 14 key areas that conventional
    penetration tests fail to address. Find out what your simulation cyberattacks
    haven't been telling you, and learn how you can perform a comprehensive
    audit that gives you the full-spectrum data necessary to lock down your IT
    systems.
