Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration testing (VAPT) is the process of identifying security gaps in your IT infrastructure by mimicking real world attacks. Think about it as quality assurance for your IT security. By exploiting security vulnerabilities, penetration testing helps you determine how to best mitigate and protect your vital business data from future cyber-security attacks.
What Does Penetration Testing Mean to a Business?
A penetration test is a crucial component to network security. Through these tests a business can identify:
- Security vulnerabilities before a hacker does
- Gaps in information security compliance
- The response time of their information security team, i.e. how long it takes the team to realize that there is a breach and mitigate the impact
- The potential real-world effect of a data breach or cybersecurity attack
- Actionable remediation guidance
Types of Services
- Black-Box Testing
- Zero knowledge of the target IT Infrastructure
- Testing as an attacker
- White-Box Testing
- Full knowledge of the target IT Infrastructure
- Testing as a developer
- Grey-Box Testing
- Combination of both White and Black box testing methods
- Some knowledge of the target IT Infrastructure
- Testing as a user with access to some data
Your website is the public face of the organization among your customers, suppliers and potential investors. Web application attacks, launched on port 80/443, go straight through the firewall, past the operating system and network level security, and right into the heart of your application and corporate data. Tailor-made web applications are often insufficiently tested, have undiscovered vulnerabilities and are therefore easy prey for hackers.
Find out if your website is secure before hackers download sensitive data, launch criminal activity from your website and endanger your business.
CICRA can conduct this scan externally and provide you a detailed report on the possible vulnerabilities and how to remediate them. With years of Information Security experience, CICRA will conduct this scan using state of the art scanning methodologies to uncover vulnerabilities inside your website.
Mobile application security testing can help ensure there aren’t any loopholes in the software that may cause data loss. The sets of tests are meant to attack the app to identify possible threats and vulnerabilities that would allow external persons or systems to access private information stored on the mobile device.
SAST – Static Application Security Testing
SAST analyzes application source code, byte code and binaries for coding and design conditions that are indicative of security vulnerabilities. SAST solutions analyze an application from the “inside out” in a nonrunning state.
DAST – Dynamic Application Security Testing
DAST are designed to detect conditions indicative of a security vulnerability in an application in its running state. it is performed without a view into the internal source code or application
architecture the same techniques that an attacker would use to ﬁnd potential weaknesses
MAST – Manual Application Security Testing
MAST Puts real hackers behind the scenes to test your app for exploits which may go unnoticed.
What is API.
An API is a set of programming syntax that enables data transmission between one software product
and another. It also contains the terms of this data exchange. Basically, an API specifies how software
components should interact.
APIs drive almost all kinds of applications ‐ including web, mobile, IoT and many others. The API layer is
the visible backbone of any application. it’s where all the data and requests get processed. As a result of
that, the API layer exposes a very large surface area for attacks ‐ as evident in the latest hacks against
Google+ and Facebook. Hackers are now targeting API‐specific vulnerabilities, specifically around data
access controls including Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) and Attribute-Based Access Control (ABAC).
This has allowed hackers to retrieve resources that they should not have been able to access.
APISec ™ ‐ Enterprise‐Class API Security Platform
APISec delivers instant and continuous API security coverage and compliance. It allows enterprises to
protect applications from attacks targeting the API layer – which represent the majority of all security
Key Features & Benefits
- Instant Security Coverage.
APISec automatically generates instant security coverage for the Top‐0 API vulnerabilities including RBAC, ABAC, Unsecured Endpoints, DDoS, SQL Injection, and many others. With APISec’s unmatched depth of coverage, enterprises can mitigate API‐specific exploits like data breaches as a result of privilege escalation vulnerabilities (RBAC) or unauthorized access to resources (ABAC).
- Get On‐Demand & Continuous API Security Compliance.
With APISec’s comprehensive and integrated API security management, enterprises can get on‐emand and continuous compliance for PCI 6.5 and OWASP standards eliminating the need for periodic API security audits.
- Shorten Test Cycles with Distributed Executions & CI/CD Integration.
Scanners parallelize executions and run them in a distributed manner. The scanners can be automatically provisioned on local machines or across any private or public cloud. Additionally, integration with common CI/CD tools like Jenkins, Bamboo, TeamCity, and others allow enterprises find vulnerabilities as early as possible in the development cycle.
- Eliminate the Headache of Manual Bug Creation & Assignment.
Automated bug filing and closing eliminates the need to manually create bugs and chase after developers.
- Shorten Vulnerability Resolution Times with Detailed Wire Logging & Recommendations.
Quickly fix security issues with detailed analytics on executions and wire logging. APISec Remedies provides best practices for fixing discovered vulnerabilities along with example code snippets.
