WHAT IS VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT & PENETRATION TESTING…?
vulnerability assessment & penetration testing is a precise specialized way to deal with locate the security escape clauses in a system or programming framework. It is a process to secure the entire network from attackers.
Vulnerability assessment tools discover which vulnerabilities are there to tackle, but they do not differentiate between flaws that can be used to cause damage and those that cannot. Vulnerability scanners alert companies to the preexisting flaws in their code and where they are located. Penetration tests look to exploit the vulnerabilities in a system to determine whether illegal access or other malicious activity is possible and identify which faults pose a threat to the application. Penetration tests find exploitable weakness and measure the danger of each. A penetration test is meant to show how damaging a flaw could be in a real attack.Together, penetration testing and vulnerability assessment provide a detailed picture of the faults that exist in an application and the risks associated with those fragility.
NEED AND IMPORTANCE OF VAPT FOR A BUSINESS.
It is almost inevitable to protect your business from cyber attack if it doesn’t have a robust cyber security system. A single incident of cyber attack can cost heavily- financial loss, data loss and loss of goodwill. The biggest challenge in cyber security space is that threats continue to increase and evolve with time.

In order to keep your business safe from cyber attacks you must understand the various loopholes that makes it easy for attackers to exploit your systems, applications and networks.

Vulnerabilities can be found in applications from third-party vendors and internally made software, but most of these flaws can be easily treated once diagnosed. VAPT by 4IR Research Labs enables IT security teams to focus on mitigating critical vulnerabilities while the we continue to discover and classify vulnerabilities.
