Vulnerability Testing is also known by many as Vulnerability Assessment or Analysis. Vulnerability testing is simply a process of defining, detecting, classifying and prioritizing vulnerabilities in network infrastructure, computer system or applications. Vulnerabilities include security loopholes. Vulnerability testing plays a key role in helping in knowing the threat an environment is facing before proper measures are implemented to solve or correct them. To solve these vulnerabilities, both the vulnerable vendor and tools such as network security scanner are used. Every organization or business regardless of the size that is facing cyber-attacks will benefit greatly from vulnerability testing.
