Vulnerability Assessment

Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing are conducted to identify the security vulnerabilities and potential exploits that can cause an impact by unauthorized users ranging from financial or sensitive information leakage, user account take over or complete access to the target organization's environment.

A vulnerability can be defined as a bug in code or a flaw in software design that can be exploited to cause harm or a gap in security procedures or a weakness in internal controls that when exploited results in a security breach.

Security assessment can be carried out on publicly accessible or internal systems for the environment's physical systems as well as that uses various cloud service providers.

The evaluation of the system components helps to understand the security posture and the effectiveness of the security defenses of the organization. The resulting exhaustive report includes the critical finding that can help organizations evade another security incident.

Methodology of VAPT Assessment

Vulnerability Assessment

Information Gathering

Post scope definition, we enumerate the scoped systems to gain information about the potential vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability Assessment

Vulnerability Analysis and Exploitation

Identify the security risks that could be vulnerable and attempt to exploit to gain access to additional potential assets.

Vulnerability Assessment


Assess the value of the compromise machine entry point to determine further exploitation.

Vulnerability Assessment

Initial Reporting

Share a detailed risk description of every reported vulnerability along with POC,and criticality depending on the risk and potential business impact.

Vulnerability Assessment

Confirmatory Assessment

System and components are re-tested to validate the applied fix after remediation for the identified observations.

Vulnerability Assessment

Final Reporting

Based on the test results of the confirmatory assessment, a Pass/Fail report is issued.

VAPT are critical cybersecurity services that help organizations identify potential security weaknesses and vulnerabilities in their IT infrastructure, network, and applications. Some of the key benefits of VAPT include Identifying vulnerabilities, Mitigating security risks, Compliance requirements,
Reducing the impact of security incidents and Improving stakeholder confidence.

Overall, VAPT services are critical to improving the security posture of organizations, reducing security risks, and ensuring compliance with regulatory standards and compliance frameworks.

QRC accommodates VAPT services by using a team of highly skilled and experienced cybersecurity professionals who use the latest tools and techniques to identify vulnerabilities and weaknesses in an organization\'s IT infrastructure, network, and applications. QRC follows industry best practices and standards to ensure that its VAPT services are comprehensive, accurate, and effective in improving the security posture of its clients.

Our team will share the pre-requisite documents which mentions all the scan requirements such as connectivity, IP whitelisting, user credentials to access the application etc. You will need to fill up these documents as per the applicable assessment and share the filled documents with the team to initiate the tests.

Our tests are always non-intrusive in nature. However, at the time of these assessments, a minimal amount of network traffic may be generated. Customers can always choose whether they like the scans to be initiated during the business hours or outside business hours.

The frequency of a Vulnerability Assessment or Penetration Test is determined as per the applicable industry security standards for an organization. It also depends upon the Risk Assessment results. However, as an industry best practice, it is recommended to perform these assessments at least once a year or upon a change in the environment.

Vulnerability assessments and/or penetration tests are typically performed using a combination of manual and automated techniques and technologies to identify vulnerabilities on servers, endpoints, web applications, wireless networks, network devices and mobile devices (depending on scope and goal of the engagement).
