VAPT & Application Security Assessments

Vulnerability assessment is the process of identifying and quantifying vulnerabilities in a system. A vulnerability assessment is what most companies generally do, as the systems they are testing are live production systems and cannot afford to be disrupted by active exploits that might crash the system.

Penetration Testing can be used to find Flaws in Specifications, Architecture, Implementation, Software, Hardware, And many more.

Application Security Assessments are forms of stress testing, which exposes weaknesses or flaws in a Web/Mobile Application also can be termed as an art of finding ways to exploit Web/Mobile Application.

“There are only two types of companies: those that have been hacked, and those that will be.” ~ Robert Mueller, FBI Director, 2012.

In the era of emerging security threats and technological advancements, it is essential to

  • Identify the security weaknesses within business critical environments and applications
  • Prioritize them based on the impact they might have on your business
  • Plan necessary actions for closure before the threat is materialized

Making these scans and testing as part of your regular security assessment schedule also gives a competitive edge in the area of security.
