It refers to the process of assessing and testing the security of an organization’s IT infrastructure, which includes all internal and external computer systems, networking, cloud environment, virtualization, and related systems and components. The goal of infrastructure VAPT is to identify vulnerabilities that can be exploited by attackers and to provide recommendations for remediation to improve the overall security posture of the organization.
Infrastructure Security Testing
We conduct tests to explore potential weaknesses in application protocols, network devices, servers, and IPs. Our goal is to identify vulnerabilities, such as unsanitized inputs that could be exploited by code attacks. Infrastructure testing is necessary to minimize the risk of any hardware or software component failing. When a new infrastructure design is developed for software, it is essential to conduct a penetration test to ensure that the new infrastructure functions properly. By launching simulated cyberattacks using a variety of methods and tools, we aim to gain access to computer systems, networks, websites, and applications. This allows us to identify any vulnerabilities and implement effective security controls. Security experts also utilize specialized tools and penetration testing techniques to evaluate the strength of a company’s security policy, its compliance with regulations, and incidents such as unauthorized access.
What we do:
RNR’s Infrastructure VAPT services includes the following steps:
- Vulnerability scanning: The penetration tester scans the organization’s infrastructure for vulnerabilities, such as open ports, weak passwords, and misconfigured security settings.
- Vulnerability assessment: The penetration tester gathers information about the organization’s infrastructure, such as its network topology, devices, and applications. This information is used to identify vulnerabilities that may not be detected by automated scanning tools.
- Penetration testing: The penetration tester attempts to exploit the vulnerabilities that were identified in the scanning and assessment phases. This is done to verify that the vulnerabilities are exploitable and to identify the impact of an attack.
- Reporting: The penetration tester reports the results of the assessment to the organization, including the vulnerabilities that were identified, the risks associated with the vulnerabilities, and the recommendations for remediation.
The Infrastructure VAPT services from RNR are a useful resource for businesses of all sizes. It can assist organizations in locating and repairing infrastructure flaws that an attacker might exploit. We contribute to the reduction of security incidents and data breaches.
What is Infrastructure Security Testing and why do you need it?
Penetrating the server and network devices to test the system’s resilience and identify vulnerabilities, back doors, and flaws is the main objective of infrastructure security testing. Regular security testing of the infrastructure plays a crucial role in the IT security audit for many companies. To comply with standards like PCI, SOX, HIPAA, or GDPR, third-party infrastructure penetration testing is mandatory. Additionally, it is necessary for both enterprises and SMEs to prioritize cybersecurity, as SMEs are also targeted by 43-50% of cyberattacks. Regular security and risk assessments are important to keep up with new data security standards and ensure the security of systems even after upgrades.
Benefits Of Infrastructure Security Testing
Methodology in Infrastructure testing services
RNR utilizes various global frameworks and approaches to conduct comprehensive 360° security tests. Some examples of these frameworks include the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM), the Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES), NIST Special Publication 800-115, the Information System Security Assessment Framework (ISSAF), and the OWASP Testing Guide. Furthermore, according to the NIST Risk Management Framework SP 800-53, penetration testing can also assist in risk assessments.
Stages of Penetration testing
What is Application Security?
Effective Security Testing Safeguards your Applications from Cyber Threats & Vulnerabilities
Application Security Testing refers to the process of evaluating the security measures in an application. It involves testing the application for vulnerabilities and weaknesses that could be exploited by hackers or unauthorized users. The purpose of this testing is to identify and address any security issues before the application is deployed.
