Prevention of Penetration of the Network via Spyware or Trojan.

Work Stations are often appealing to hackers as they pose a security risk which might enable access to sensitive data via the Internet. At the point of access the hacker may have a vantage point to enable him to break-in to all the organization's data servers and proprietary information. Tests to prevent this scenario are run to prepare for the eventuality of such a break-in, and its effect on the company's network.
