Vulnerability Assessments and Penetration Testing (VAPT)
Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) provides enterprises with a more comprehensive application evaluation than any single test alone. Using the Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) approach gives an organization a more detailed view of the threats facing its applications, enabling the business to better protect its systems and data from malicious attacks. Vulnerabilities can be found in applications from third-party vendors and internally made software, but most of these flaws are easily fixed once found. Using a VAPT provider enables the security team to focus on mitigating critical vulnerabilities while the VAPT provider continues to discover and classify vulnerabilities.
A vulnerability assessment is a process of identifying and quantifying known security vulnerabilities in an environment. It is a surface-level evaluation of your information security posture, indicating weaknesses as well as providing the appropriate mitigation procedures required to either eliminate those weaknesses or reduce them to an acceptable level of risk.
A penetration test simulates the actions of an external and/or internal cyber attacker that aims to breach the information security of the organization. Using many tools and techniques, the penetration tester attempts to exploit critical systems and gain access to sensitive data.
Why do you need VAPT?
The evolving tools, tactics, and procedures used by cybercriminals to breach networks mean that it’s important to regularly test your organization’s cyber security.
VAPT helps to protect your organization by providing visibility of security weaknesses and guidance to address them. VAPT is increasingly important for organizations wanting to achieve compliance with standards including the GDPR, ISO 27001, and PCI DSS.
Our OSCP-certified Team has years of experience in VAPT activies. Our methodology is based on the OWASP Security Testing Guide, NIST: Technical Guide to Information Security Testing and Assessment and the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES).
