VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT AND PENETRATION TESTING
Tactics, Tools and Procedures (TTP) are constantly evolving and in use by cybercriminals. These techniques are used by our security experts in a controlled manner to identify real-world threats to organisations. Vulnerability assessment and penetration testing (VAPT) provides visibility into your organisations’ security risks.
What is Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) ?
VAPT (also referred to as VAPT Audit) refers to security testing services aimed at identifying security vulnerabilities in networks and applications that could negatively affect an organisation’s business or reputation if they led to abuse.
VAPT services range from vulnerability assessments to in-depth penetration testing to stealth red teaming operations. To make the right selection for security testing services needed for your organisation, it is important to understand various VAPT services. These assessments differ in methodology, project scope and price.
The sooner an organisation finds its security risks, the better equipped it is to deal with such threats.
Why do you need VAPT?
VAPT helps an organisation identify risks that threaten its operational capabilities. A vulnerability assessment is an automated exercise utilising vulnerability scanners with added human intelligence to remove false positives. This is a low-cost exercise primarily carried out by third-party companies to add their expertise and advice in risk remediation. An ongoing process of this scanning activity is managed vulnerability scanning that is central input to your risk assessment.
A penetration test involves a manual approach towards in-depth technical risk assessments finding business logic and other issues based on the target asset. This exercise is well-prepared, timed and has medium to high cost aimed. The penetration test is aimed at identifying and exploiting threats affecting the asset (a web application, mobile application, servers or networks) in scope to demonstrate the cyber attack.
A red team is a stealth operation aimed at launching a full assault on people, processes and technology in use by an organisation. It stress tests the defensive capabilities aiming to bypass restrictions in place. This is focussed on an organisational approach than a particular asset.
