Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing

VA & PT is considered the most efficient way to identify where your organization's weaknesses are and what are the key risk areas that need to be addressed. At Cloud Destinations we help your organization discover your assets, detect and mitigate potential vulnerabilities exploitable by hackers. Thereby reducing the threat landscape and keeping the attack surface as small as possible.
Cloud Destinations helps in setting up a routine vulnerability assessment as per your needs for various compliance programs such as PCI, HIPAA and ISO 27001.
Our services include the following :

  • Internal / External Network Vulnerability Scans
  • Web Application Assessment
  • Secure Code Review (SAST / DAST)
  • External Penetration Testing (Black Box, White Box, Grey Box)


Understanding VAPT and the benefits for your business

Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) describes a broad range of security testing services designed to spot and help address cyber security exposures.
In order to ensure that you choose the right type of assessment for your organisation's needs, it's important to understand VAPT services and the differences between them. The diverse nature of VAPT assessments means they will vary significantly thorough, breadth, scope and price.

What is VAPT ?

Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing is a broad range of security testing that's designed to spot and help address cyber security vulnerabilities. It includes anything from automated vulnerability assessments to human-led penetration testing and red team operations.

Why do you need VAPT?

The evolving tools, tactics and procedures used by cybercriminals to breach networks means that it's important to regularly test your organisation's cyber security. VAPT helps to guard your organisation by providing visibility of security weaknesses and guidance to deal with them. VAPT is increasingly important for organisations eager to achieve compliance with standards including the GDPR, ISO 27001 and PCI DSS.

Vulnerability Assessment

A vulnerability assessment, often encompassing vulnerability scanning, is meant to assist identify, classify and address security risks. Vulnerability assessment services also provide the continued support and advice needed to best mitigate any risks identified.
  • Internal Network / Application Vulnerability Assessment
  • External Network / Application Vulnerability Assessment
  • Wireless Network Vulnerability Assessment
Vulnerabilities detected by our network penetration testing service but not limited to:
  • Insecure configuration parameters
  • Ineffective firewall rules
  • Unpatched systems
  • Software flaws
  • Weak encryption protocols
  • Inadequate security controls

Penetration Testing

Penetration testing, or pen testing for short, is a multi-layered security assessment that uses a combination of machine and human-led techniques to identify and exploit vulnerabilities in infrastructure, systems and applications.
Types of Penetration Testing
  • Internal/External infrastructure/network Pentesting
  • Internal / External Web Application Pentesting
  • Wireless Network Pentesting
  • Social Engineering Testing (Phishing)
  • Red Teaming Simulation
Testing includes assessing applications for vulnerabilities listed in the OWASP Top 10, the Open Web Application Security Project's ten most critical application security risks. Our web application security testing team will help to identify vulnerabilities including:
  • Injection flaws
  • Authentication weaknesses
  • Poor session management
  • Broken access controls
  • Security misconfigurations
  • Database interaction errors
  • Input validation problems
  • Flaws in application logic
Wireless Pentesting vulnerabilities identified
  • Rogue access points
  • Weak encryption
  • Default router setups
  • Wireless zero configurations
  • Guest WiFi weaknesses
  • Bruteforce weaknesses
  • Bluetooth exploits
  • WPA key vulnerabilities

What is a build and configuration security review?

An insecurely configured network or systems could give attackers a simple route into your organisation. Conducting a build or configuration review helps to scale back this risk by identifying security misconfiguration vulnerabilities across web and application servers, web frameworks, and devices such as routers and firewalls.
As part of the build and configuration security, we review !
  • Password policies
  • Access management
  • Wired and wireless network settings
  • Cloud configurations
  • Operating systems
  • Data storage
  • Security systems
  • Applications

Customised real-life phishing exercises designed around your organisation

Psychological manipulation may be a tactic commonly employed by cybercriminals. By crafting emails and web pages that imitate those of known organisations and contacts, fraudsters aim to trick individuals into clicking dangerous links, opening malicious attachments, and disclosing personal details.
Benefits of social engineering testing
  • Identifies risks posed
  • Reveals your information footprint
  • Evaluates defences
  • Raises cyber awareness
  • Enhances security training
