Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing(VAPT) are two cyber-defense technologies that can be used to provide proactive cyber defence. To keep your web application safe and secured, you'll need to test it extensively, looking at it from a variety of perspectives. It's not enough to take a one-and-done strategy. Penetration testing, vulnerability assessments, and programme vulnerability correlation are all effective practices. The use of numerous automated instruments and manual monitoring procedures to evaluate the target system's protection status is vulnerability assessment.
Both violation points and loopholes are discovered in this process. If an attacker discovers these violation points/loopholes, it may result in significant data loss and malicious intrusion activities. Penetration testing simulates the behaviour of a malware user attempting to hack the target system's vulnerabilities. The identified collection of vulnerabilities in VA is used as an input vector in this process. The VAPT method aids in determining the efficacy of protection controls installed on the target device.
