Information Security Audit
Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing Services (VAPT)
Vulnerability Assessments are a process of identifying, quantifying, and prioritizing vulnerabilities in a system. A vulnerability refers to the inability of the system to withstand the effects of a hostile environment.
Penetration Tests are a method of evaluating computer and network security simulating attacks on a computer system or network from external and internal threats.They are usually defined by a given test objective.
VAPT is a process in which the Information & Communication Technologies (ICT) infrastructure consists of computers, networks, servers, operating systems and application software are scanned in order to identify the presence of known and unknown vulnerabilities. As many as 70% of web sites have vulnerabilities that could lead to the theft of sensitive corporate data such as credit card information, product IP, customer lists etc. Hackers are concentrating their efforts on web-based applications - shopping carts, forms, login pages, dynamic content, etc.
