Overview

A penetration test, also known as a pen test, is an authorized simulated cyber attack on a computer system, performed to evaluate the security of the system. The test is performed to identify both weaknesses (also referred to as vulnerabilities), including the potential for unauthorized parties to gain access to the system's features and data, as well as strengths, enabling a full risk assessment to be completed.

During traditional penetration tests, companies source and hire expert freelancers or organizations to perform the security tests necessary for annual compliance with internal security protocols. At HeroX, we have decided to apply crowdsourcing to our regular security evaluations via an incentivized competition model.

If you are qualified and interested in participating in our pen test, visit the Guidelines Tab for more information.
