Security Testing Tools – The Complete Tools List
As part of Security Testing, the testing team can take the help of different tools for performing the below things:
  • Vulnerability Assessment: As part of this the security testing team will identify the vulnerabilities in the system and provide a detailed assessment report with the list of identified vulnerabilities.
  • Penetration Testing: As part of this the security testing team will exploit the identified vulnerabilities, to check whether they can be compromised to gain access and control on the system.

Types of Security Testing Tools: Security Testing tools can be categorized into two types:
  • Scanners: These tools are used for identifying the vulnerabilities.
  • Attackers: These tools are used for attacking the system with an intention of compromising the identified vulnerabilities to gain access and complete control.
