Penetration testing to Wireless Networks
Technical security test that seeks to test security controls and identify weaknesses in the wireless network, evaluating critical aspects of the network and presenting recommendations for improvement. In this type of test there is a very important phase that involves the exploitation of the identified vulnerabilities with the aim of obtaining unauthorized access to a wireless network.
Why is it important
Once the organization makes the effort to identify and mitigate the vulnerabilities that are present in its wireless network, it is necessary to raise the level of testing and validate that they are not exposed to an internal / external attacker can exploit any vulnerability and compromise the security of the information of the same. It is important to run these types of tests to validate the effectiveness of the countermeasures applied to mitigate any previously identified vulnerabilities.
