About the WEB VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENT AND PENETRATION TESTING
We are finalizing the After the successful penetration into the system, privilege escalation technique is used to identify and escalate access to gain higher privileges, such as registry/root access or administrative privileges to that particular it environment system or network.
What is a Web Application Penetration Testing?
A web application penetration test is a method where we can identify and exploit vulnerabilities of web application. Its act is to classify possible flaws in the web application to assure the application is protected
Why VA-PT is required?
As new technologies emerge and change the IT scenarios, newer audit security challenges are given to be faced by corporates. Thus the business that do transaction over the internet are at high risk, though other companies are also at risk when being exposed to external networks. Thus many unforeseen traps with multiple vulnerabilities and numerous threats do manifest themselves in the least expected time and at the least expected place. Thus in order to take-up such challenges and address then, a robust system with appropriate security policies, adequate controls, periodic review and monitoring are to be in place to protect the organisation's information assets. Hence it is highly recommended to carry out an indepth Network Assessment comprising of VA-PT audits in a periodic manner to ensure software compliance to controls established and the policies set in the organisation and further to evaluate whether they are adequate to address all the threats
