Vulnerability Testing Services

Vulnerability Assessment is a systematic process of identifying vulnerabilities in systems, applications, and network infrastructures. It is a process of reviewing systems and networks that are susceptible to any vulnerabilities. The assessment helps the organization determine security flaws, risk exposure, and assets that are potentially exposed to Cybersecurity breaches. The Vulnerability Assessment process can help identify and fix security issues and further counter surprise attacks. Performing the Assessment frequently will validate the effectiveness of the existing security controls and ensure a high-security posture of your infrastructure. It is an important step towards limiting the Cybersecurity threats and other risk exposure against your organization.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Frequently Asked Questions on Vulnerability Assessment

    As a part of the Information Security program and industry best practice, it is recommended that organizations perform a Vulnerability Assessment every quarter or 6months depending on the criticality of their assets.

    Vulnerability Assessment is a systematic evaluation of systems and networks to determine security weaknesses. The assessment scanning process includes tests for vulnerabilities, vulnerability analysis, risk assessment, and remediations.

    Organizations of any size who often face the risk of cyberattacks can benefit from the vulnerability assessment. Most importantly large enterprises that are subject to ongoing attacks will benefit most from a Vulnerability assessment.

    There are three categories of Vulnerability Assessment:

    White-Box: White Box also known as Credential Scan, is a process that involves scanning of the system with complete access given to the assets in scope. The tester is given access to the network and an administrative account to assess the system thoroughly. This is to scan the entire internal environment for vulnerabilities using advanced tools to assess the security of the stored information and machine configuration. A credential scan provides a clear picture of the security posture of the systems.

    Black-Box: Black-Box is a non-credential-based scan wherein the tester is not given any administrative privileges or account passwords to access the assets in scope. In this assessment, the tester attempts to infiltrate the cyber defense from the outside just like a hacker to exploit public IP addresses, and firewalls to gain unauthorized access. This type of scan highlights the security threat exposure to your system and networks.

    Grey-Box: The assessmentincorporates both white box and black box methods in the testing process. So, here the tester is given limited information about your target systems to access for assessing system securities and vulnerabilities. This type of analysis is typically conductedfor gaining a more focused and efficient assessment of a network’s security than a black-box and a white box assessment.

    As industry best practice Vulnerability Assessment should be conducted at least once per quarter or when there are significant changes introduced in the operations, systems, or networks.

    The assessment helps identify security weaknesses in its environment.
    The test provides direction to the organization for mitigating risks.
    Identify security flaws and assets that are exposed to cybersecurity threats.
    The test will help classify the level of risks that are identified in the network or systems.
    Identifying vulnerabilities and remediation will prevent cybersecurity threats.
    Vulnerability Assessment is essential for ensuring that the organization meets cybersecurity compliance standards such as HIPAA, SOC2, GDPR, and PCI DSS.
