Penetration testing, also called pentesting, is about more than just getting through a perimeter firewall. The biggest security threats are inside the network, where attackers can rampage through sensitive data by exploiting weak access controls and poorly patched software. Designed for up-and-coming security professionals, Penetrating Enterprise Networks teaches you how to take over an enterprise network from the inside. It lays out every stage of an internal security assessment step-by-step, showing you how to identify weaknesses before a malicious invader can do real damage.
If you're interested in understanding what a pen test is, and what it's not, you need to read this book.

A nice guided tour to penetration testing.
I learned a lot about more efficient ways of scanning a network from it.
From zero to hero in a book!
