There are various ways to test systems for vulnerabilities. In that, the two most effective ways are penetration testing and vulnerability scanning. Both the methods are used for the same purpose, but they are entirely different from each other. Vulnerability scan is an automated test which looks for potential vulnerabilities. Penetration testing is a live process which exploits weaknesses in the systems. This article discusses how penetration testing is different from vulnerability scan.
