Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) are two types of vulnerability testing. The tests have different strengths and are often combined to achieve a more complete vulnerability analysis. In short, Penetration Testing and Vulnerability Assessments perform two different tasks, usually with different results, within the same area of focus.
Hackers are getting bolder and more creative in the way they attempt to penetrate the networks and websites of enterprises. Survey data has consistently proved that around 70% of such attacks are from disgruntled or malicious employees. Therefore it is very important for enterprises to test the robustness of their security infrastructure (the ﬁrewall policies, type of IDS etc.) and their Information Security Management System (the password policy, privileges given to employees to access various systems etc.).
