Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing Overview2021-04-08T09:03:00+00:00

Decoding VAPT

The vulnerability assessment process involves the use of vulnerability assessment tools that identify vulnerabilities in your organization’s IT assets, which have the potential to be exploited by attackers. These are systemic flaws that can leave your organization exposed to both known and unknown threats such as ransomware and more.

What is VAPT?

VAPT stands for Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) and the acronym contains two types of testing approaches, which together offer a comprehensive vulnerability evaluation. The VAPT process includes automated vulnerability assessment, human-centric penetration testing and in certain complex scenarios, also involved red team operations

Penetration testing is used to identify the extent of weaknesses and their severity. The job of a penetration test is to find flaws and show you how damaging it could be if it is exploited by a real attacker.

Together, both Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing offer a drill-down view of the various flaws across different systems and their potential to put your organization’s cybersecurity at risk.
