Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT)

What is VAPT?

Identify Security Gaps in Your Digital Assets

VAPT stands for Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing. That uses a combination of machine and human-led techniques to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in infrastructure, systems and applications. A pen test conducted by a professional ethical hacker will include a post-assessment report detailing any vulnerabilities discovered and remediation guidance to help address them. It is a security testing to identify security vulnerabilities in an application, network, endpoint, and cloud. Both the Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing have unique strengths and are often collectively done to achieve complete analysis. Vulnerability Assessment scans the digital assets and notifies organizations about pre-existing flaws. Penetration test exploits the vulnerabilities in the system & determines the security gaps.

Why would your organization need VAPT?

Vulnerabilities exist in all levels of a computing system (on premise and cloud) regardless of the organization’s size. There’s a big misconception that small and medium-sized businesses are spared by cyber attackers. But this is far from reality. As the security of small businesses is usually relaxed, attackers incline towards them. Many times, organizations say they don’t require vulnerability risk assessments because they’re such a small organization. But this false belief could prove very costly for a business, big or small – SME or MNC. The security loopholes in your IT infrastructure are:

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.

Types of penetration testing:

  • Internal/external infrastructure testing
  • Web application testing
  • Wireless network testing
  • Mobile application testing
