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.
Necessity of VAPT
Cybercriminals are using strategies and tactics that are constantly evolving. In order to ensure your network remains safe at all times, it is imperative that it goes through periodic vulnerability assessment and testing.
Apart from delivering a 360° visibility into organizational security weaknesses and throwing light on the necessary security solution, VAPT also supports your need to meet compliances such as GDPR, PCI DSS and ISO 27001

Typically, Vulnerability Assessment involves the use of automated tools to identify vulnerabilities.
A pen test is designed to use ethical cybersecurity hacking to exploit vulnerabilities existing on IOT assets, mobile apps, web apps, APIs and on the network to judge the seriousness of these vulnerabilities and find a solution for them.
