Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Astra the best VAPT provider?

Astra combines automated and manual pentest to offer the most comprehensive security testing solution, without burning a hole into your pocket. The pentest platform integrates easily with your CI/CD pipeline and the intuitive dashboard makes it easy to manage and monitor the vulnerabilities. It is a self-served tool, with excellent remediation support, and an impeccable record.

Do I need to make an upfront payment?

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.

Can I request a re-scan to check if the vulnerability is patched?

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.

Do you work with our developer in patching the vulnerabilities?

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.

What should I look for in a Pentest tool?

- A self-served tool with a capable team behind it to help you with roadblocks.

- Easy integrations with your SDLC.

- Value for money.

- Scan behind login pages.

- Remediation Support

Till what time can I ask for assistance for fixing?

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.

Does the vulnerability scanner/VAPT work only on a certain technology?

Not at all, the security audit and VAPT are agnostic of the technology stack and work well on all websites.

How to choose a VAPT company?

The main role of a VAPT service provider is to reveal all the underlying security vulnerabilities in your website. Always check for:

- # of tests

- VAPT methodology

- Depth of Penetration testing Report

- Video POCs

- Qualification of security engineers

- Certifications
