With cybercrimes on the rise, cybersecurity has become very important today. Every company is eager to avoid cybercrimes like data breaches and hacking. To prepare for such incidents, every company has many protection systems in place. However, the best method to test the strength of these protective measures is penetration testing. Every pen tester must consider many factors like budget, time, and scope of the organization’s penetration testing to choose just the right tool for each phase of the process. This project analyzes the most efficient scanning tool by testing them in a Kali Linux environment.
