Why do I need a VAPT?

With fast moving technology adoption, rapid development cycles, mobile applications, IoT, etc. – Networks today are more vulnerable than ever. Additionally, cyber attacks and compromises are a real threat for most organizations.Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration testing helps you validate your security controls against real-world threats, identify security risks in your environment and understand the real-world impact of these issues. Furthermore, it also helps meet a wide-range of compliance standards and regulatory requirements that require regular VAPT activities to help secure the network and applications.

Who will carry out this security test?

On starting an audit, we assign the project to an in-house team of security consultants with relevant experience in the platform and technology in-addition to industry standard security certifications. Several levels of approvals take place within our work-flow based system to track the audits and ensure that internal quality standards are met.

How frequently a VAPT needs to be done?

VAPT should be performed on a regular basis based on internal change cycles or compliance and regulatory requirements. Some organizations carry out the activity once a year while some go as far as on a daily or monthly basis.

Is it possible to only do a VA or PT?

Yes, it is possible to carry out either a Vulnerability Assessment or Penetration Testing. A Vulnerability assessment focuses on internal security and ensuring that all your systems are patched and configured as per best practice standards. A Penetration Testing focuses on external security and gives you a real-world picture of what a motivated attacker could do from the outside.
