IT network VAPT, or penetration testing, is an important task to be carried out by IT administrators. This is because of the rise in hacking attempts irrespective of the industry type. Attacks can happen from internally or externally with no or little knowledge of the network. We have an outstanding and inclusive work environment. We are quite welcoming to the students outside of India too. We have provided internship to hundreds of students so far from 20+ countries and still counting.

Details Of Internship
We offer internships of the duration of 3 months and 6 months depending on the requirements of the interns and the availability of positions at our company. We do have options of remote and on-site internships, but we do recommend on-site internships. We strongly believe that on-site internships make you all-round ready for the real corporate world.
There are three tracks of internships available here. They are as follows:
1. Cyber security general awareness
Interns are trained on basic level of awareness and understanding about cybersecurity best practices and the cyber threats that networks or organizations face every day. This track is exclusively available for college students, who have college requirement of internship (3 months or 6 months).
2. Core VAPT
This track is available for college students as well as techie people looking forward to making their careers as penetration testers or cyber professionals. Interns are thoroughly trained in Web application, Mobile application and Cloud applications vulnerability assessment and penetration testing. In this internship track, the interns are imparted the knowledge of the entire testing process. They are trained the detailed step by step process of Network VAPT, Web VAPT, Mobile VAPT and Cloud VAPT.
Network VAPT is a service by which corporate IT networks are scanned and tested for the presence of security loop holes. Leaving such loopholes can result into exploitation and hacking of the data, which should ideally be protected by the IT networks.
Web application vulnerability assessment and penetration testing is one type of security testing. Vulnerability Assessment involves finding security holes i.e., vulnerabilities in the web application. Penetration Testing involves exploiting the found vulnerabilities to gain unauthorized access to the data or the system itself or making the data unavailable to access, or make changes to the data by compromising its integrity. Web VAPT (also called as Web Pentesting) helps find out weaknesses before they are exploited by hackers thus making web applications secure.
Mobile application security testing solution discovers malicious or potentially risky actions in your mobile applications, keeping your business and customers secure against attacks.
The main objective of Cloud security is to stop any threat or malware from accessing, stealing or manipulating any of our private data. It identifies the threats in the system and measures its potential vulnerabilities and risks. It also helps developers in fixing those problems through coding. The cloud security testing is applicable for large application base, applications with low to medium risk and organizations with a strict budget & time restrictions.
3. Compliance implementation
In this track, the interns are trained thoroughly in the process of various compliances:
- PCI DSS
This track is exclusively available for compliance auditors. ISO27001:2013 is a worldwide accepted standard to help protect information assets. It entails a structured set of policies and procedures to let an organization be secure and gain confidence in their customer's minds. ISO 27001 expects the management to examine firm's IT security risks, and measure it in terms of threats, vulnerabilities, and business impact. It is also expected that design and implementation of security controls and risk management tools are important for business stability. All this needs to be achieved by adopting a well-defined management process to ensure effectiveness of security controls.
Cyber security field is extensive. Therefore, we have designed our approach to make you aware first, and then eventually expert in your field of liking and interest.
