Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing

Importance of VAPT:

A vulnerability assessment provides an organization with information on the security weaknesses in its environment. It also provides direction on how to assess the risks associated with those weaknesses. This process offers the organization a better understanding of its assets, security flaws and overall risk, reducing the likelihood that a cybercriminal will breach its systems and catch the business off guard.

Tools:

  • Netsparker Security Scanner
  • Acunetix Web Vulnerability Scanner
  • Intruder
  • Metasploit
  • Nmap
  • Wireshark
  • John the Ripper
  • Nessus
  • Aircrack-ng
  • Burp Suite
  • W3af
  • ManageEngine Vulnerability Manager Plus

Types of VAPT:
a) Network based VAPT
– Identifying the issues in network
– It will detect the open port, and identify the unknown services running on these ports. Then it will disclose possible vulnerabilities associated with these services
 
b) Host based VAPT
– Identifying the issues in host or the system
– The process is carried out by using host-based scanners and diagnosing the vulnerabilities.
– The host-based tools will load a mediator software onto the target system; it will trace the event and report it to the security analyst
 
c) Wireless network scans
– Wireless network scans of an organization’s Wi-Fi networks usually focus on points of attack in the wireless network infrastructure. In addition to identifying rogue access points, a wireless network scan can also validate that a company’s network is securely configured
 
d) Application scans
– Application scans can be used to test websites to detect known software vulnerabilities and incorrect configurations in network or web applications
 
e) Database Scans
– It will identify the security exposure in the database systems using tools and techniques to prevent from SQL Injections.

Our Methodology

INFORMATION GATHERING

image
In this stage, we make detailed observations about, its structure, its features, and security controls. Some input is also inputs by the development team the system.

 
 

PLANNING AND ANALYSIS

image
We frame a Red Team methodology based on the information gathered to analyze real-time attacks. We attack collected vulnerabilities either on dummy areas or during low network activity.

PENETRATION TESTING

image
Here we use custom scripts, in-house tools and open source exploits to evaluate the application’s security.
 
 

REPORTING

image
We compiled brief and concise reports of the detected vulnerabilities and discussed the nature of the risk, its impact, the level of threat, and recommendations for removing the vulnerabilities.
 
 

DISCUSSION

The reports will be discussed and explained by our technical expects with the vulnerabilities found, and their impact status. Even extensive discussions are held on how to remove the risk and strengthen the application by the client development team.
