VAPT stands for Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing. VAPT is meant for security of your software systems.
- As systems move to servers and cloud, they are constantly exposed to hackers who are looking for ways to break the system and compromise the confidential data of businesses.
- A VAPT audit of the system is done by professional / ethical hackers to see if the system is vulnerable to hacking threats. Once threats are identified, they are fixed to ensure systems remain secured.
- Large-scale systems need to take up VAPT audits once every 3 months whereas smaller-scale systems may be audited at least once every year.
