Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing (VAPT)

The Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing (VAPT) is to discover, approach and evaluate the defence and security posture of an organization from a remote attacker's perspective.

Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing

Our Penetration Testing plans for Web, Mobile, Networks & Systems, tailor ad-hoc or ongoing programs of Penetration Testing towards your needs and circumstances and can provide services varying from business-to-business requirements. FORT, in partnership with ImmuniWeb, extends the offerings to AI-based Security Assessment & Penetration Testing. We aim to verify the security, integrity, and availability of our client’s security posture by conducting internal/external types of VAPT.

FORT’s approach towards Security assessment and penetration testing can provide you with a detailed view of the security posture of your internal or public-facing digital assets. Our experts will evaluate the performance of the implemented security measures, spot vulnerabilities, and offer clear recommendations for improvement in a comprehensive report. The reporting will include recommendations on a strategic, tactical, and operational level as well as a succinct management summary with in-depth risk analysis for each outcome.

In human intelligence-based penetration testing our pentester gathers all the information of the business and technical points overview and then analyzes them with highly qualified tools. Our team observes the following steps.

Information Gathering

The collection is done either manually or by using specific tools to gather intel such as information about various third-party plugins, table names, DB versions, databases, software, hardware, etc.

Planning and Analysis

Defining the test’s objectives and scope, as well as the systems it will test and the techniques it will employ.

Vulnerability Detection

The test then detects the security issue and takes appropriate preventive measures after the data has been gathered.


After vulnerabilities have been found our R&D team attempts to exploit them by launching an attack.


Once exploitation is complete our experts assess the damage that can be done and provide a report that describes everything and recommends mitigation techniques.

Report Analysis

Security specialists examine the report to determine remediation techniques, risk rank vulnerabilities, examine the potential effects of those vulnerabilities, and use that information to guide future decision-making.


Once the analysis is complete the patching process takes place. The remediation plan is implemented and mitigation techniques are employed for all discovered vulnerabilities.

Post-Remediation Testing

After patching is done our penetration testers again attempt to exploit the vulnerabilities using prior and new techniques to detect if patching has been implemented properly.

Final Report Submission

This in-depth report includes descriptions of how we began the testing, how we discovered vulnerabilities, how we took advantage of them, and then how exactly our mitigation plan was implemented to patch out the problems. It also includes a report on the retesting phase and how successful the patching phase was in practical terms.

Differences between Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing.

Vulnerability assessment and Penetration testing are techniques that complement one another and are even sometimes considered the same thing but there are major differences. In a vulnerability assessment, we attempt to find out the maximum number of flaws that may be present without wasting time to exploit them. This gives us a wider perspective of the system. Penetration testing involves running tests from the viewpoint of an attacker, and when a weakness is discovered, our ethical hackers use it to assess how deep an attacker can penetrate. With our combined service of vulnerability assessment and penetration testing (VA/PT), you will obtain a thorough breakdown of the discovered vulnerabilities and learn what the consequences of not patching them would be. Concave FORT can help you and offer advice on how to strengthen your cyber resilience based on the results of these tests.

Cloud Security

Cloud Security Protection

Organizations are looking to assess their cloud risks, evaluate cloud threats and validate their cloud technology controls in the growing migration to cloud-hosted environments. This enables organizations to have a mature cloud security posture.

FORT experts have seen a significant increase while dealing with cloud-related incident response to the expanded attack surface, after the Covid-19. The demand for cloud security services is rising exponentially with the expanded attack surface. Our Security Experts adopts standards of penetration testing methodology to perform simulated attacks in your environment that mirror attack behaviors in the realm of “Simulated attack” to identify the current security posture of the Cloud security, associated risk and remediation techniques. 


Web Application Security

Web Application Penetration Test

Our experts are actively involved in identifying the world’s most critical web application security flaws through ongoing hands-on research and contributions to security projects such as OWASP TOP 10, Web Application Security Consortium Threat Classification and Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS).

Many firms place a high value on web apps. For instance, the efficient and secure running of an online store is entirely dependent on these programs. Of course, there are a variety of other uses for these applications, including online banking, examining test results, accessing digital content (media, games, etc) and scheduling appointments at the doctor’s office.

Websites that require a login to view sensitive personal information are particularly at risk. While these websites often have strong security measures in place to prevent unauthorized access, things can go wrong once a person logs in and the risk of threats such as CSRF and XSS is present.

To ensure security we take the following steps:

  • Test against brute force method of credentials cracking
  • Testing the registration and login pages for possibilities of privilege escalation
  • Testing session management structure
  • Testing horizontal and vertical authentication
  • Testing for attacks such as SQL, CSRF and XSS
  • Testing the business logic and attempting to abuse it
  • Testing for the presence of standard security standards such as CSP
  • Testing TLS strength

All these aspects are covered by our penetration testers and along with this we also utilize Immuniweb Web Penetration Testing. We employ ImmuniWeb® On-Demand to find OWASP Top 10, PCI DSS 6.5 List, and SANS Top 25 vulnerabilities in your online applications, RESTful APIs, and microservices. We locate complex business logic, privilege escalation, and authentication bypass flaws. Customize testing with MFA, OTP, or SSO in Black Box or authorized multiuser mode.

Mobile App Security

Mobile Application Penetration Test

Before releasing the mobile application, Penetration tests are essential to handle the sensitive data and exploitation of your industrial compliance.

Mobile applications are designed to be very simple and easy to use from a user’s perspective. Authentication is simple and data is often stored locally, this makes mobile applications extremely vulnerable to cyber-attacks. 

To secure mobile applications we look for the following:

  • Misuse of the operating system’s security features, such as biometric authentication.
  • Unencrypted local storage of sensitive data such as login credentials.
  • Role-based access control features to avoid privilege escalation.
  • Reverse engineering protection.
  • Insecure configuration(VPNs, databases, application servers).
  • Improper cryptography implementation.
  • Authentication and session management.

All these aspects are covered by our penetration testers and along with this we also utilize Immuniweb Mobile Testing Suite. ImmuniWeb® MobileSuite, we identify the OWASP Mobile Top 10 flaws in your iOS or Android mobile app and the SANS Top 25 vulnerabilities in the endpoints of the mobile app.  We check to see if the privacy, compliance, and encryption features of your mobile app adhere to industry best practices.

Network Security

Vulnerability Assessment & Penetration Testing (VAPT) + Network Security

Network Penetration Test

To safeguard the IT infrastructure network entrusted to them, cybersecurity experts have to be right all the time. A hacker, on the other hand, only has to be right once.

Our network penetration test, also known as a pen test, aims to find software system weaknesses by simulating a cyber-attack. This simulated attack evaluates an organization’s ability to withstand a breach or compromise as well as the resilience of its information security.

Internal Network Testing

It is possible that an attacker may somehow be able to find their way into your network. This can lead to massive security problems and internal network testing is done to address this.  In an internal penetration test, we will do an exploratory network analysis with the goal of acquiring highly privileged (administrator, root) access to the network, the resources, and the entire Windows domain (if applicable). During this phase, testing will also be done on internal applications, databases, ERP systems, and management systems. This is divided into an initial exploring phase and a post-exploratory section in the real world.

The exploratory phase includes:

  • Sniffing network traffic
  • Accessing sensitive data servers
  • Acquiring information on specific employees

The post-exploitation phase includes

  • Obtaining Admin credentials
  • Privilege escalation
  • User exploitation
  • Backtracking to wipe our digital fingerprint

External Network Testing

An external pen test takes place from the perspective of an attacker on the outside. It assumes that the attacker does not have access to the internal network and will have to use publicly available information such as public IPs ect to somehow perform an attack. Our team mimics these through the following steps:

  • Social engineering on employees for access
  • Fingerprinting of network and data gathering
  • Target external assets (VPN, IDS/IPS,Web-apps,SaaS apps,routers)

Systems Security

System Penetration Test

Our penetration tester uses a simulated attack on a system device to find its vulnerability, by using tools, techniques, and processes to demonstrate and evaluate the business impacts of weaknesses in a system.

Our experts examine user and group configurations, local access control configurations, local system configurations, local patch configurations, clear text storage of passwords, and clear text storage of sensitive data during the host base penetration test. We also review physical security controls, software security controls, access control lists, local system configurations, and local patch configurations. 

Our system penetration testing is a host-based testing method that includes devices from individual separate machines to virtualized environments such as VMs, Remote desktops, dockers/containers, etc as well as servers.

Our system penetration testing is a host-based testing method that includes devices from individual separate machines to virtualized environments such as VMs, Remote desktops, dockers/containers, etc as well as servers.

It is getting harder to manage physical workstations. Because of this, a lot of businesses offer remote desktop access via virtualization tools like Citrix and VMware. With less overhead and supervision, those platforms can make it simple for partners, vendors, and remote workers to access the resources they require. However, because laptops are rarely connected to the internet, there are extra risks that come along with the convenience of access. Concave FORT locates flaws that allow unwanted access to the operating system through published desktops on virtualization software like Citrix and VMware, among others.

Key vulnerabilities we focus on:

  • System misconfiguration
  • Internal environment pivoting
  • Privilege escalation
  • Insufficient logging

Penetration Testing Methodology

Concave FORT penetration testing services are built on a methodological approach to finding and reporting vulnerabilities. Our expert's approach entails;


To identify all assets that are included in the pen test’s purview, we carefully collaborate with the client.

To start the penetration test, penetration testers will get ready and acquire the necessary hardware, operating systems, and software. A penetration tester will specify the necessary tools at the beginning of each penetration test. The required tools vary based on the type and scope of the engagement. The penetration tester will begin the testing based on the given scope and keep a test record throughout the testing.

Intelligence Gathering

The client will give the penetration tester a general description of the targets that are within scope and the tester will collect additional information from readily available sources. In order to generate intelligence that could be used to exploit the client, we gather publically accessible information using open-source approaches (OSINT).

Vulnerability Analysis

To fully understand the client’s attack surface, we thoroughly evaluate the network architecture and applications. In order to find security flaws to exploit, we thoroughly audit the programs running on the target hosts. Penetration testers locate, confirm, and assess the security threats that vulnerabilities present. This vulnerability study seeks to identify exploitable holes in the client’s system.


To access target systems and data, we exploit identified vulnerabilities. In an effort to compromise the client’s system and security, the pen tester will use the vulnerabilities found. We also make an effort to compromise a user with a privileged account.


After the testing is complete, we use compromised systems as a mechanism to further attack more assets.


We offer a pen test report that was personally prepared, along with an executive summary and suggestions on how to successfully address threats.
