Vulnerability is a weakness which allows an attacker to reduce a system’s information assurance. It is the intersection of three elements: a system susceptibility or flaw, attacker access to the flaw, and attacker capability to exploit the flaw.
Vulnerability assessment is the process of identifying, quantifying, and prioritizing (or ranking) the vulnerabilities in a system. In a simpler language, it is the search and disclosure of these weaknesses which need to be fixed and patched in order to prevent your web and mobile applications from being compromised.
CloudOps performs vulnerability assessment and penetration Testing (VAPT) of the network and IT infrastructure to determine your production environment attack surface. The goal of this assessment is to establish a “Heat Map of the Attack Vectors” and provide a systematic mitigation strategy to secure the network.
We compare your security perceptions with actual data gathered directly from your network. A thorough report helps you to understand any difference between what you feel your risk level to be and that indicated by actual network data. Including the output in an overall security assessment increases the value, as the data is real, collected typically during the testing period. We can then progress the IT security audit through to a remediation process, to help you to lock the windows and bolt the doors on your environment, to give you peace of mind in a secure operating environment.
