Vulnerability assessment and penetration testing, abbreviated for VAPT, helps in identifying all the possible attack vectors and is envisaged as most convenient and feasible to run tests over the internet, anywhere and at any time. An acronym for security testing, this assessment is a process to find out the possible flaws and vulnerabilities in which computers, networks, operating systems application software etc., are scanned and tested thoroughly.
It has been estimated that 70% of the websites have known or unknown vulnerabilities which may lead to possible threats on the security of corporate data, such as credit card information and lists of customers.
It has been said by the well renowned English biologist, Thomas Huxley, “ The man of science has learned to believe in justification, not by faith, but by verification.” In support to his perception, it can be said that in today’s world where cut-throat competition prevails everyone’s mindset, expansion of business online always arrives with a calculated risks, of hackers trying to bring you down. Unanticipated traps and vulnerabilities pave their path to demolish your efforts.
Therefore, as said, “Prevention is better than cure”, we, at MetaDesign Solutions, provide Vulnerability assessment and penetration test or in other words software security testing, to ensure your network’s or system’s security, without putting on you the heavy weight of unnecessary costs. Moreover, this may further fall into your interest to note that VAPT, not only provides tests coverages of quality but also, cuts down the excessive consumption of time, by enhancing the test timing and makes it done faster. Apart from this, its artificial intelligence is deployed in detecting attack paths and to suggest suitable and appropriate solutions for it which is not feasible in case of traditional testing.
It is coherent from the discussion that Vulnerability assessment and penetration testing helps in extracting to the forefront, a complete depiction of the flaws and the vulnerabilities that exist in a particular software or application and the extent to which they can cause damage, in short, their severity. In this section, here is an attempt to put on a thinking cap, on the Importance of VAPT Testing.
As it has been discussed above, vulnerability management system helps in boosting up ROI and profits by diminishing the risks of business logical flaws. It can be performed in a 8 step process:
At MetaDesign Solutions, we have a skilled and highly experienced team of test engineers who work hard in all possible aspects to bring about fruitful results. We affirm that you won’t be able to doubt our capabilities because we treat our customers as they own us because they do. Therefore, complete satisfaction would be at your doorstep, if you choose us. Here are some of the reasons why you must hire our test engineers for VAPT testing:
Summarizing, IT vulnerability management system is important to make sure that any particular software or application remains secured and devoid of any vulnerabilities. We have been able to succeed and will continue to climb the ladder of success because we ardently believe in Mario Andretti’s quote according to which, “it is determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”
We recently performed VAPT Testing for a healthcare startup to test its mobile apps, web portal and API’s for any security holes. The entire testing took around 1 month to complete.
