Black Box Penetration Test Advantages

True Digital Security is a wholly owned member of the Cerberus Sentinel family of companies.

When it comes to penetration testing, you want to make sure you are selecting the right kind of test to meet your organization’s unique needs, but it can be easy to get lost in terminology. It’s important to understand the different types of security testing, how they compare, what they achieve, and who to trust in helping you navigate your options. Recently, we took a deep dive into collaborative pen tests that involve both a Red Team and Blue Team (purple team testing), to provide real-time remediation for vulnerabilities and gaps. In this week’s installment, we are going to cover standard Black Box testing. 

A Black Box Penetration Test is an unauthenticated test – a penetration test where no account credentials are provided, and little information is known about the target, other than maybe an IP address, URL, or building location. In essence, the target environment is a “black box”. As ethical hackers, we have to determine what’s inside the black box and how to exploit vulnerabilities discovered within the black box. Black Box Penetration Testing is a great next step to identify issues that simple vulnerability scanning can not discover.
