Advantages of Penetration Testing

Ideal for testing detection and response capabilities

Can be used to determine the current security posture of an organization

Disadvantages of Penetration Testing

Not a comprehensive evaluation of security

Only as good as the tester

Penetration testing is more comprehensive than vulnerability testing, however, it does not look at a broad scope of security posture of the organization It takes a different skill set to run an exploit found during a vulnerability scan
