In a world dominated by rapid change, we understand the urgency of properly protected and the importance of managing all aspects of your IT infrastructure. That's why our team carries out an evaluation of identifying vulnerabilities, interdependencies and cascading effects of a potential threat to the system. Our intention is to provide an overview of the vulnerability assessment process from discovery to baseline standardization, need for vulnerability assessments and offer some assistance to those who want to perform a vulnerability assessment but do not know where to start.
A network vulnerability assessment is the process of reviewing and analyzing a computer network for possible security vulnerabilities and loopholes.
Host vulnerability which is fully based on system level vulnerability like insecure file located, application level bugs and trojan horse bugs. it requires specialized tools for the software package with administrative rights. All it takes for an attacker, or a rogue insider, is a missing patch on a server that permits an unauthenticated command prompt or other backdoor path into the web environment
Wireless network vulnerability:
Wireless access points are easy to install. As a result, many individuals within companies have taken it upon themselves to set up an authorized access point, without informing the network administrator. Typically, these access points are not protected, which means they can be used by an attacker just as they can by a valid user. Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers or data using wireless networks.
An application vulnerability is a system flaw or weakness in an application that could be exploited to compromise the security of the application, Application vulnerability which is nothing but finding and fixing the preventing security vulnertabilities and which is contain different stages of an applications lifecycle such as design, development, deployment, upgrade, maintenance.
Databases are a key target for cybercriminals due to the often valuable nature of sensitive information locked away inside. Whether the data is financial or holds intellectual property and corporate secrets, hackers worldwide can profit from breaching a businesses' servers and plundering databases. The database will describe the identified vulnerability, assess the potential infliction on computer systems and the workaround required to desist a hacker
Common types of vulnerabilities:
- Broken Authentication and Session Management
- Memory safety violations
- Input validation errors
- Security Misconfiguration
- Privilege escalation
- Side-channel attack
- Insufficient Transport Layer Protection
- Unvalidated Redirects and privilege escalation
