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. Network penetration testing services helps find security vulnerabilities in the network perimeter which is usually a firewall or a router, that separates internal and external networks. Network penetration testing (often referred as network pentesting or network VAPT) is a specilized job to ensure security and compliance of your organization's information stack.
Internal corporate LAN/WAN environments are structured to allow users greater amounts of access with fewer security controls, and this is exactly where the situation becomes exploitable.
Any network design flaw or network and server vulnerabilities can result into exploitable areas which is a target of hackers. Multiple surveys indicate that most of the large scale firms and almost all mid-scale firms lack in corporate level cyber security implementations to protect themselves.
Protecting assets can be a daunting task. You are likely investing in security controls but how do you know that you are getting the results you need? That's where Valency Networks can help. Using a combination of automated tools and elite attackers, researchers and practitioners, we can help you find and mitigate vulnerabilities. Whether you require white, grey or black box services, we are here to answer the call. We provide solutions for companies new to testing, or for organizations with mature vulnerability management programs.
Benefits of working with us:
Identify weakness in your technologies, processes and people
Remediate vulnerabilities and minimize the attack surface
Reduce risk and meet compliance requirements
The sole purpose of Vulnerability Assessment is to identify, quantify and rank vulnerabilities in your systems and evaluate your enterprise security effort at a technical and program level. Vulnerability assessment falls under cyber security testing, which is also known as VAPT service and it is the technique of identifying (discovery) and measuring security vulnerabilities (scanning) in a given environment.
It is a comprehensive assessment of the information security position (result analysis). Further, it identifies the potential weaknesses and provides the proper mitigation measures (remediation) to either remove those weaknesses or reduce below the risk level.
The sole purpose of Penetration testing (Pentesting) is to understand, quantify and document the real-world risks of an attack in today's changing threat landscape. During a penetration test, our experts will attempt to breach the information security controls of your organization.
What Is Vulnerability And Penetration Testing From Our Service Offering?
Our service offering is built to understand the need to be agile, introduce new systems, technologies and ways of working to be competitive and improve efficiency. Our security vulnerability assessment services maximizes risk reduction whilst minimizing any disruption to the delivery of business. We evaluate systems by subjecting them to external Internet attacks or by considering insider threats.
Vulnerability and Penetration Testing: how does it work?
Since any network can be breached with time and skill, there will always be risk. It's all about Risk Management and clients are keen to understand the risk to their organization. Our service helps to reduce risks :
NIST recommends the following:
Make network security testing a routine and integral part of the system and network operations and administration. Organizations should conduct routine tests of systems and verify that systems have been configured correctly with the appropriate security mechanisms and policy. Routine testing prevents many types of incidents from occurring in the first place. The additional costs for performing this testing will be offset by the reduced costs in incident response.
Test the most important systems first. In general, systems that should be tested first include those systems that are publicly accessible, that is, routers, firewalls, web servers, e-mail servers, and certain other systems that are open to the public, are not protected behind firewalls, or are mission critical systems. Organizations can then use various metrics to determine the importance or criticality of other systems in the organization and proceed to test those systems as well.
