Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing / Red Team Assessment
What is VAPT?
Cyber-Attack has become a really common thing in today's world,, impacting thousands of systems, servers, websites and networks each day. Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) are security services that we utilize to detect risk and vulnerabilities in the system infrastructure. Vulnerability Assessment focuses on internal organizational security, while Penetration Testing focuses on external real-world risk.
A vulnerability assessment, which typically includes vulnerability scanning, is intended to aid in the identification and classification of security threats. Vulnerability assessment services also give continuous assistance and guidance to help minimise any risks and threats that have been identified.
Penetration testing, often known as pentesting, is a multilevel security assessment conducted by a professional ethical hacker (pentester) that uses a combination of machine and human-led techniques to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in infrastructure, systems and applications. after the pentesting, a post-assessment report is prepared by the pentester, in which he describes all the vulnerabilities as well as remediation guidance to resolve them.
Types of penetration testing :
● Internal/External Infrastructure Testing
● Web Application Testing
● Wireless Network Testing
● Mobile Application Testing
● Social Engineering Testing
Red Team Operations
A red team assessment is a real-world cyber-attack simulation designed to test an organisation’s ability to detect and respond to persistent threats using the same tactics and techniques used by Cyber Terrorists. They better prepare your organisation for an unexpected cyber-attack.
Why do you need VAPT?
Cyber attacks are a huge problem in the real world today. Every day we keep getting news of data breaches, malware attacks and websites being hacked. VAPT helps to protect your organization from such cyber-attacks by providing security vulnerabilities in your system infrastructure and guidance to resolve them.
My Working Process
Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing Phases.
Determining The Scope, Requirements, Backups, Restrictions and Agreements.
Test goals are defined and intelligence is gathered.
Scanning tools are used to understand how a target responds to intrusions.
Taking controls over network devices and web applications and then maintaining that access.
Remove all changes and return to a state of non-recognition by the host network administrators.
Outcome of the pentest. (Summary, Purpose, Scope, Vulnerabilities, Recommendations etc.)
