What is VAPT?
(Vulnerability Assessments and Penetration Testing)
Vulnerability Assessments (VA)
Vulnerability Assessments is the process of Vulnerability and Risk discovery through information gathering and resource scanning utilities. Vulnerability Assessments generate reports on these Vulnerabilities and Risks for further investigation and remedy.
With Vulnerabilities and Exploits found daily and Software Updates done monthly, it is recommended for Vulnerability Assessments for Servers, Networks, Software, Websites and Web Applications to be scheduled quarterly to ensure accurate reporting on the severity of new Vulnerabilities and Risks and the impact associated with your Servers, Computers and Network Infrastructure. IT Security Assessments offer corporations and individuals insight into risks associated with improper network, server and software configuration and deployments and allow companies the opportunity to proactively prevent an data breach.
Penetration Testing (PT)
Penetration Testing is the physical act of trying to exploit Vulnerabilities and Risks found in the Vulnerability Assessment phase. With your written permission, Cyber Watchdogs will act as a hacker by simulating a cyber attack and test your IT Security (Information, Data, Servers, Computer or Network Infrastructure) with tools and techniques used by hackers to exploit Vulnerabilities found during the discovery and information gathering phase.
