Since the early days of technology systems, vulnerabilities have been existing across systems, applications, and infrastructure. Current trends and growth towards hyperconnected systems, cloud environments and business applications mandate interconnected systems deployed in shorter time. Systems design is focused on deployment of functionality desired by business. In the pursuit of achieving quicker go-to-market deadline, some loopholes and back-doors in the solution may get missed. Some of the vulnerabilities may be introduced in solutions during the lifecycle.
Vulnerabilities can be observed across a wide array of systems. Following are some of he most common types of vulnerabilities found across enterprises:
Types of services aligned with different types of vulnerabilities and enterprise risks are:
Vulnerability scans are aligned to scan critical enterprise assets like Infrastructure across compute, storage, network ports and network configuration. These assessments can be conducted across on-premises, private cloud, and public cloud environments. Reports prepared by experienced analysts gives a consolidated view of scored vulnerabilities to help enterprises prioritize vulnerability remediation for critical applications and infrastructure to start with.
Penetration testing exercises are conducted to provide an outside-in view of exploitable vulnerabilities in an Enterprise’s systems. While these exercises are designed to identify security weaknesses, they are also used to conducted to check robustness of security controls deployed. Most regulatory authorities mandate organizations to conduct regular Vulnerability and Penetration testing exercises.
Web Application Penetration Testing (WAPT)
WAPT exercises are focused on Web Applications and associated stack ranging from Infrastructure, Database to Application code and security controls deployed to keep the Web Application safe. Exercise also helps in determining whether deployed controls are functioning in accordance to pre-determined capabilities or if further configuration changes would be required.
Mobile Application Penetration Testing
Mobile applications are designed to provide a very different experience to users. Ensuring mobile applications are not a gateway for malicious actors to enter enterprise environment can be ensured by conducted Mobile App Pen Testing.
Secure Code Review Services
Secure code review services are focused on static and dynamic web applications. Services help organizations determine any loop-holes, back doors and vulnerabilities in the code before the same is committed to production. This helps in eliminating possible risks.
