Vulnerability assessments and penetration testing are like security check-ups for your network.
They help you identify and fix any weak spots before they can be exploited.
Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) is the process of identifying, evaluating, and mitigating vulnerabilities in a computer system, network, or web application. The process typically includes both automated and manual testing methods to identify potential security weaknesses. VAPT is an important step in maintaining the overall security of an organization's systems and networks, as it helps to identify vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers. It helps organizations to improve their security posture and minimize the risk of security breaches.
VAPT goes beyond identifying potential vulnerabilities, it also attempts to exploit them to determine if they can actually be used to gain unauthorized access to a system or network.
By identifying and addressing vulnerabilities, organizations can improve their overall security posture and reduce the risk of security breaches.
Many industries have regulations and compliance requirements that mandate regular VAPT. For example, PCI DSS requires regular VAPT for organizations that process credit card transactions.
Unknown vulnerabilities: VAPT can identify unknown vulnerabilities that might not be detected by automated vulnerability scanning tools.
VAPT simulates real-world attacks on a system to identify vulnerabilities that might be exploited by actual attackers.
Our Experts will gather information about the infrastructure/services/ applications, and the security controls in place.
Automated tools are used to scan the environment for known vulnerabilities.
Manual testing is used to identify vulnerabilities that may not be detected by automated tools, such as misconfigurations and logic flaws.
Attempts are made to exploit identified vulnerabilities to gain unauthorized access to the environment and its resources.
The results of the vulnerability assessment and penetration testing are reported to the organization, including a list of vulnerabilities, their severity, and recommendations for remediation.
