What is VAPT?
VAPT stands for Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing. Vulnerability Assessment is the process of identifying vulnerabilities in an organization's IT infrastructure, including hardware, software, and networks. Penetration Testing is the process of simulating an attack on an organization's IT infrastructure to identify vulnerabilities and exploit them to gain access to sensitive information.
Why do you need VAPT?
Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) is essential for organizations to ensure the security and resilience of their systems, networks, and applications. VAPT is crucial for organizations to proactively identify vulnerabilities, mitigate risks, meet compliance requirements, protect confidential data, enhance incident response capabilities, and safeguard their reputation. By investing in VAPT, organizations can significantly reduce their exposure to cyber threats and strengthen their overall security posture.

Network Infrastructure Testing
Network infrastructure testing focuses on assessing the security of an organization's network devices, including routers, switches, firewalls, and other network components. Penetration testers simulate attacks to identify vulnerabilities and potential entry points that could be exploited by attackers. This testing helps ensure that network configurations, access controls, and network architecture are robust and resistant to unauthorized access.
Web Application Testing
Web application testing involves assessing the security of web-based applications, such as online portals, e-commerce platforms, and web services. Penetration testers scrutinize the application's architecture, functionality, and underlying code to identify vulnerabilities like SQL injection, cross-site scripting (XSS), and authentication flaws. This testing helps organizations identify and remediate vulnerabilities that could be exploited to compromise the confidentiality, integrity, or availability of the web application and its associated data.
Cloud Penetration Testing
Cloud penetration testing evaluates the security of cloud-based infrastructures, services, and applications. As more organizations adopt cloud computing, ensuring the security of cloud environments becomes paramount. Penetration testers assess the configuration, access controls, and integration of cloud services to identify vulnerabilities that could lead to unauthorized access, data breaches, or other cloud-specific risks. This testing helps organizations mitigate the unique security challenges associated with cloud adoption.
Wireless testing focuses on assessing the security of an organization's wireless networks, including Wi-Fi networks and Bluetooth devices. Penetration testers evaluate wireless network configurations, encryption protocols, and access controls to identify vulnerabilities that could enable unauthorized access or eavesdropping. This testing helps organizations secure their wireless networks and ensure the confidentiality and integrity of wireless communications.
Social engineering testing assesses an organization's susceptibility to manipulation techniques employed by attackers to exploit human vulnerabilities. Penetration testers simulate real-world social engineering attacks, such as phishing emails, impersonation, or phone-based scams, to evaluate the organization's awareness, training, and response to such attacks. This testing helps organizations educate employees, raise security awareness, and implement robust policies and procedures to mitigate the risks associated with social engineering.
Mobile Security Testing
Mobile security testing focuses on evaluating the security of mobile applications and the associated mobile device ecosystem. Penetration testers assess the security of mobile applications, including their coding practices, data storage mechanisms, and communication channels. They also evaluate the security configurations of mobile devices to identify vulnerabilities that could compromise the security and privacy of sensitive data stored on or transmitted through mobile devices. This testing helps organizations secure their mobile applications and protect sensitive information accessed or processed on mobile platforms.
