Vulnerability Assessments and Penetration Testing (VAPT) conducts two distinct activities, frequently with disparate outcomes, inside the same domain of interest. The tests have varying strengths and are frequently combined to provide a more comprehensive vulnerability analysis.
Vulnerability assessment tools identify which vulnerabilities exist, but they do not distinguish between problems that can be exploited and those that cannot. Vulnerability scanners notify businesses of pre-existing problems in their code and where they may be found. Penetration tests aim to exploit system vulnerabilities to assess whether unauthorized access or other malicious conduct is possible, as well as which faults constitute a threat to the application. Penetration testing identifies exploitable weaknesses and assesses their severity. Thus, VAPT by RSK cyber security firms provides a complete identification for both existing and potential cyber threats.
Hackers are always on their quest to steal your information. You need experts to beat the cyber criminal's mindset. We at RSK cyber security help businesses with our expertise tailored with the following:
The first and foremost goal of VAPT is to uncover the vulnerabilities in a security posture. A penetration test first focuses on the high severity vulnerabilities and, if none can be found then it goes further to discover the vulnerabilities with medium and low-level severity.
The Vulnerability assessment and penetration testing can help you stay in line with the industry compliances led by the government and regulators. If your business doesn’t meet the compliances, it would gradually lead to loss of business in terms of low credibility in cyberspace among the customers, and even hefty fines in some cases.
During the process of penetration testing, the security personnel must stay on the lookout for different attacks and be ready to respond as and when required. Also, it is advisable to keep your protection devices ready during ongoing penetration testing.
