Vulnerability Assessment identifies and lists all existing vulnerabilities in your website. On the other hand, Penetration Testing focuses more on how each of these vulnerabilities could be exploited.
For example, consider a thief trying to enter your house to rob you and you want to take security pre-measures so that the thief won’t be able to enter your house.
Here, vulnerability assessment (VA) is similar to making sure you have all your house windows and doors closed. And penetration testing (PT) is similar to checking the strength or any weaknesses of your windows or doors so that even if a thief tries to enter he won’t find any entry points to enter into your house and you can have a worriless sleep.
Yes, a Pentest is an in-depth exercise that requires hours of effort of human & technology resources. That’s why an upfront payment is expected.
Definitely, once you’ve fixed the vulnerabilities you can request a scan simply by clicking a button on your dashboard. Following which, our engineers are notified and they plan a re-scan. If you are a business plan customer, you get a re-scan every month. If you’ve opted for a security audit separately then one re-scan is available to you.
Yes, for sure. We assist your developers in fixing the vulnerabilities reported. Your developer can comment under each vulnerability if they have any questions regarding the fixation process.
A target is a URL that will be tested by our vulnerability scanner. It can be the URL of a web application, website, API etc.
If your website makes API calls to different domains (eg: api.example.com), you can add them as an extra host without having to purchase another domain. Our scanner scans all the dependencies of such sub-domains on main app at www.example.com.
Let's say you have a customer dashboard at https://app.example.com/ and an admin dashboard at https://admin.example.com/ with different login pages, then you will need 2 targets. Know More.

You start seeing vulnerabilities reported by us from the day testing is started. You can ask for support in fixing the vulnerabilities for 30-days, starting from the day our engineers finish testing. During these 30 days, our engineers will be available to work with you or your developers and assist them in fixing bugs via the comment system of our dashboard. At any point, if the engineers feel that there is a need for a chat, they’ll be happy to talk to you over a chat too.
Not at all, the security audit and VAPT are agnostic of the technology stack and work well on all websites.
