More focus is given for the remediation of high threat vulnerabilities. The vulnerability assessment and penetration testing experts’ put a lot of effort and hard work in order to recognize the risks and confidentiality of vulnerable information and once the threats and vulnerabilities have been identified and evaluated, the penetration testing should address the risks identified throughout the environment.
