What is Penetration Testing (VAPT)?

Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) simulates the tools and techniques of an attacker to detect and exploit vulnerabilities in your networks and applications to gain access, obtain sensitive personal data or conduct fraudulent transactions. Penetration testing services provides one of the most effective way to assess your security controls and overall security posture.

Penetration testing services conducted by skilled pen testers helps you identify possible cyber attack routes and identify vulnerable services that may not be found from vulnerability assessments. All our penetration testing services include a vulnerability assessment as part of the service.

Pen testing can be conducted from within your network to simulate insider threat or from the public internet to simulate an external hacker. And depending on the objectives of the security assessment and your cyber security program, the assessment can be performed as an unauthenticated user (no login access) or with test user accounts.

 

Network Penetration Testing

Network

To detect vulnerabilities in the operating system and commonly used software in servers and network devices.

Application Penetration Testing

Application

To detect vulnerabilities at the application layer,  usually for custom-developed web and mobile applications.

Wireless Penetration Testing

Wireless

To detect vulnerabilities in the wireless network implementation within your organization’s premises.

Penetration Testing (VAPT) Process

Penetration Testing Process - Scan

Scan

Run vulnerability scanning tools to analyze target for potential vulnerabilities.

Penetration Testing Process - Exploit

Exploit

Perform manual testing, verify vulnerabilities and attempt to exploit the target.

Penetration Testing Process - Report

Report

Analyze impact and severity of issues, and recommend corrective action.

Penetration Testing Process - Retest

Retest

Verify if previously identified weaknesses have been fixed adequately.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between black-box and grey-box testing?

Black-box testing simulates an unauthorized attacker with no user credentials i.e. testing without logging into the system. With this approach, system functions requiring authenticated access will not be tested.

Grey-box testing simulates an authorized but malicious attacker with user credentials i.e. testing by logging into the system. With this approach, system functions requiring authenticated access will be tested.

What is the difference between internal and external testing?

Internal testing simulates a malicious insider attack and is conducted from within the customer internal network and from a segment where the targets are accessible.

External testing simulates a malicious outsider attack and is conducted from the public internet without modification of customer’s perimeter defence.

What is included in network penetration testing?

Network penetration testing helps customers identify vulnerable services running on your network infrastructure and is primarily concerned with vulnerabilities at the operating system layer and common software (e.g. NIST CPE) of the target hosts and devices. Regular network penetration testing helps identify weaknesses that can be exploited in a real world attack.

What is included in application penetration testing?

Application testing is focused on mobile and web application security and the functionalities of the application (including web API servers for mobile apps) and is primarily concerned with application layer vulnerabilities, especially the OWASP Top Ten Web Application Security Risks and OWASP Mobile Top 10. Besides identifying vulnerabilities, application testing helps you to evaluate the information security controls implemented for protecting data and securing transactions.

What assessment methodology do you use?

We adopt the following guidelines for our penetration testing methodology:

  • Penetration Testing Execution Standard
  • OWASP Web Security Testing Guide
  • OWASP Mobile Security Testing Guide

Specific network and application testing procedures are executed based on the nature of the testing and environment.

What tools do you use?

Our security professionals use both commercial and open source testing tools including Tenable Nessus Pro, Burp Suite Pro, Kali Linux, Metasploit, etc.

The team has delivered numerous penetration testing projects for customers in Singapore and other locations, from large multinational enterprises to small and medium business, and across various industries.

CREST Penetration Testing (VAPT)

Licensed by Singapore’s Cyber Security Agency (CSA)

Cyber Security Agency of Singapore (CSA) has launched its licensing framework for cybersecurity service providers under Singapore’s Cybersecurity Act, effective 11 April 2022. As of now, penetration testing and managed security operations centre monitoring services will require licenses due to the significant access service providers have into their clients’ computer systems and sensitive information.

Companies providing licensable cybersecurity services in Singapore have until 11 October 2022 to apply for a licence, but may continue to provide services until a decision is made on their licence application. Cybersecurity service providers who do not apply for a licence in time will have to cease the provision of their service until a licence is obtained.

Swarmnetics is licensed by the Cybersecurity Services Regulation Office (CSRO) since 31 May 2022 (Licence No. CS/PTS/C-2022-0090).
