Penetration Testing Companies in Bangalore have become the need of the hour for all the businesses or companies using IT enabled services.

The very recent June 2021 ransomwares attacks on Colonial Pipeline, an American oil pipeline system and JBS USA Holdings Inc, a meat supplier Company have exposed gaps in protection for Industries. Colonial paid $5 million ransom while JBS coughed up a hefty $11 million.

  • It is high time that Companies learn from others’ experience than waiting for the inevitable to happen.

Penetration testing companies in Bangalore:It is of paramount importance for Companies to scale up their infrastructure and application defense mechanisms against the offensive techniques of the hackers in order to mitigate the monetary and reputational damage to them. Nevertheless, the game of defense and offensive techniques will continue unabated. Penetration Testing services/VAPT services are here to take the burden off the chest of the Companies facing the imminent threat of cyber-attacks. Regular VAPT (Vulnerability assessment and Penetration testing) techniques incorporated in any Company’s cyber security mechanism will go a long way to counteract the vexing challenge of ransomware thereby securing the safety and wellbeing of the Company. VAPT is a term often used to describe security testing that is designed to identify and help address infrastructure and application vulnerabilities. While both vulnerability assessment and penetration testing help Companies detect security gaps and fix them before being exploited, they have entirely different purpose and approach.

Define, identify, classify and prioritize vulnerabilities

Vulnerability Assessment (VA):

It helps to discover which vulnerabilities are present but they do not differentiate between flaws that can be exploited to cause damage and those that cannot. This process helps to identify threats and the risks they pose. It provides the knowledge, awareness and risk backgrounds to understand and react to the threats. Vulnerability Assessment uses network security scanning testing tools to identify vulnerabilities, threats and risks. Vulnerability Assessment focusses on internal organizational security and should be employed on a regular basis, particularly when changes are made such as adding new services, new equipment is installed, new ports are opened or moving to the cloud to ensure the security of network. Vulnerability Assessment is usually a non-intrusive process and can be carried out without damaging the IT infrastructure or application operation. It takes around few minutes to several hours to carry out the task.

It simply is an answer to the question “what issues does my network have?”

Expose the actual damage of vulnerability

Penetration Testing (PT) Company

This method will expose the actual damage the vulnerabilities can cause by replicating what an actual hacker can or could do. It helps to assess the tolerance of business in cyber-attacks. It requires high level of expertise to carry out the task. Penetration testing is very targeted covering critical assets only. It lasts anywhere between days to weeks. Penetration testing is mostly intrusive process and can cause damage to the systems and hence a lot of precaution has to be taken. Penetration testing is an answer to the question “How bad are the issues on my network?”.

Penetration Testing Methods

  • Black Box Analysis: Web Application Scanning - Black Box Analysis provides dynamic evaluation and security audit software to help find vulnerabilities in live applications.
  • White Box Analysis: Static Analysis provides automated code testing techniques that do not require access to programme code, allowing developers to find flaws in code they build, buy, or download
  • Automated Penetration Testing: Software Composition Analysis provides visibility across the whole application ecosystem by detecting vulnerabilities in open-source and commercial code in third-party elements as well as your own software.
  • Manual Penetration Testing: In order to improve computerised web application security testing, AcstraSecure also offers best-in-class manual penetration testing services.

Both the services (VA and PT) play an important complementary role in strengthening cyber resilience.

In short VAPT process entails the following:

  • Scan the network or application
  • Search for security flaws
  • Exploit the security flaws
  • Prepare report

Vulnerability causes:

Misconfiguration and incorrect programming practices are the main reasons behind a system being vulnerable. Some of the reasons for vulnerability are:

  • Poor design of hardware and software
  • Poorly configured system
  • System connected to an unsecured network
  • Poor password combinations
  • Complex software or hardware

Web Application Vulnerabilities:

Our web application security testing team will assist you in identifying flaws such as:

  • Injection Flaws
  • The flaws in authentication
  • Ineffective session management
  • Access controls that aren't working
  • Misconfigurations in security
  • Interaction errors with databases
  • Problems with input validation
  • Logic flaws in the programme

Web Penetration Testing & Stages

Penetration Testing

Pen Testing, also known as penetration testing, is the most widely used security testing technique for web applications.

Web penetration enables end-users to determine the possibility of a hacker accessing data from the internet, the security of their email servers, and the security of the web hosting site and server.

Vulnerability Scanning is a detective control method that suggests ways to improve security programmes and ensure known weaknesses do not resurface, whereas a pen test is a preventive control method that provides an overall view of the system’s existing security layer.

There are numerous methods for conducting a penetration test, which evaluates a company’s security posture.

What is Web Penetration Testing

Web application penetration testing entails a methodical series of steps aimed at gathering information about the target system, identifying vulnerabilities or faults in it, and researching exploits that will succeed against those flaws or vulnerabilities and compromise the web application.

Penetration testing stages

  1. Planning and reconnaissance.
  2. Scanning
  3. Gaining Access.
  4. Maintaining access.
  5. Analysis

There are a number of useful tools for scanning web applications. The simplest way to conduct a web penetration test using the OWASP ZAP tool (Zed Attack Proxy).

The Zed Attack Proxy (ZAP) is a free and open-source penetration testing tool developed as part of the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP). ZAP is a web application testing framework that is both flexible and extensible.

At its core, ZAP is a “man-in-the-middle proxy,” standing between the tester’s browser and the web application, intercepting and inspecting messages sent between the browser and the web application, modifying the contents as needed, and then forwarding those packets on to the destination. It can run as a standalone application or as a daemon process.
