Ensuring secure applications for your business through VAPT assessment

Vulnerability assessment and penetration testing a.k.a VAPT is a combination of Vulnerability assessment and penetration testing. This combination gives any organisation a better identification, classification and mitigation of the vulnerabilities present in the system and applications.

Vulnerability Assessment is focused to find the internal flaws present in the organisation’s system that may arise due to frequent changes made in the applications or due to the firewall default settings or other network settings. That’s the reason this needs to be regularly scanned and addressed.

Penetration testing aims at identifying the flaws in the system and exploiting them like a real-world hacker but in a controlled way, giving insight to the organisation on the vulnerabilities of their system. This testing is advised to be done at least annually for securing the system. The exposed flaws can be mitigated to strengthen the system, saving it from external cyber threats.

What is the necessity for Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing (VAPT)?

Cyber attacks and threats are becoming nightmares for organisations these days, with thousands of websites and networks being compromised every day. Some of the reasons that make conducting Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing (VAPT) in any organisation important are- 


1. Keeping the data secure while in transition over the network. 

2. Protecting the user data. 

3. Identifying the security vulnerabilities within the system.

4. Detecting loopholes and flaws in the system.

5. Accessing the tolerance of the business against cyber attacks.

6. Implementing an effective security strategy in the organisation.  


Protecting your data and resources before the attack is the idea behind conducting Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing (VAPT). Every organisation is spending on security to stay away from cyber attacks. 


Depending upon the requirements of the various industries, Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing (VAPT) is mandatory across many industries as some compliance standards require VAPT at regular intervals. A list of such compliances are - 


ISO 27002 / ISO 27001

PCI DSS – Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard

SOX – Sarbanes-Oxley Act

HIPAA – Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act

TRAI – Telecom Regulatory Authority of India

The industry standard advises organizations to scan their internal and external systems at least quarterly. Ideally, it is recommended to perform assessments monthly.
Vulnerability scanners alert companies to the preexisting flaws in their code and where they are located. Penetration tests attempt to exploit the vulnerabilities in a system to determine whether unauthorized access or other malicious activity is possible and identify which flaws pose a threat to the application.
VAPT fees are usually dependent on the activity which are included in the test. The estimated cost depends upon the number of devices, servers, program size, number of locations, and so on.
Yes, either a Vulnerability Assessment or Penetration Testing can be performed based on the requirements of the organisation.
Data breaches are a big nightmare for any organisation. These can be from identity theft, money theft, and diminished user trust. VAPT plays an important role in securing against data theft.
