What is Penetration Testing?

Penetration Testing is an in-depth assessment of your technical and cyber security, which involves inviting a trusted party to thoroughly test your security protocols. Essentially, the trusted party will attempt to uncover vulnerabilities in your systems and identify where breaches can be made. By doing this, the identified vulnerabilities can be patched pro-actively and before a genuine malicious attack can be made via that route.

Should Your business conduct Penetration Testing?

If data and general security is valuable to your business operations, then you should absolutely consider scheduling a penetration test and vulnerability assessment. Once security weaknesses have been identified, they can be prioritised and addressed in order of urgency. In fact, penetration testing should be a part of your regular security assessment schedule. As part of our managed IT services, we will conduct regular tests to ensure your working environment is as safe as it can be and that any vulnerabilities are short-lived.

Spectrum Networks Solutions Ltd offers Penetration Testing & Vulnerability Assessment Services to identify vulnerabilities in your infrastructure, networks and application environments and to address the requirements of regulations and standards.

Our Vulnerability Assessment Service typically consists of, but not limited to, port scanning, OS and Service detection, and Vulnerability Analysis.

We analyse the vulnerabilities detected in earlier phase to exploit the weaknesses both manually and using appropriate tools to launch typical attacks.

It’s critical that you choose the right company to conduct the Penetration Testing service. By choosing an overall managed IT service that includes penetration testing, you can ensure that you are building a relationship with a trusted supplier, as opposed to hiring a one-off penetration tester who (although it’s rare) may have an alternative motive.

Our Penetration Testing Service typically consists of, but not limited to, manual and automatic penetration testing, and exploitation of vulnerabilities.

Need of VAPT on Web App

As many as 70% of web sites have vulnerabilities that could lead to the theft of sensitive corporate data such as credit card information and customerlists. Hackers are concentrating their efforts on web-based applications’ shopping carts, forms, login pages, dynamic content, etc. Accessible 24/7 from anywhere in the world, insecure web applications provide easy access to backend corporate databases.

Need of VAPT on Firewall

Firewall Auditing is a very critical component of security systems today. The technology landscape changes for Web Applications, Enterprise Solutions, Mobility & Mobile Devices, communication tools & networks. This brings in new compliance requirements with an increase in expectations from firewall security aswell.

Need of VAPT on Network

Network devices are commonly targeted by hackers in order to destabilize the entire network or to steal information. Spectrum Networks VAPT services help you validate the configuration of various technology devices & platforms on your network as per best practices. We help you identify security issues and weak links in your network through network assessment, and penetrationtesting.

Holistic Approach towards Security

Information Gathering & Analysis

  • Define Object
  • Network Survey
  • Open Ports

Vulnerability Scanning

  • Define target for penetration
  • Scan the web to discover unknown vulnerability
  • Interpret the scan result


  • Summary of successful penetration
  • Description of vulnerabilities found
  • Recommendation to resolve vulnerabilities found


  • Comprehensive Testing for Networks.
  • Identification of weakest link in the chain to provide evidence that verifies the possibility of exploiting the vulnerabilities found.
  • Elimination of false positives and prioritise real threats.
  • Detection of attack paths missed through manual testing. Facilitates regular and frequent scans.
  • Secures against business logic flaws and closing all windows of opportunity for intruders.
  • Facilitating regular and frequentscans.
  • Include the best industry standards like; OWASP, SANS etc.

Why Us?

Spectrum Networks Solutions Ltd platform combines both Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing (VAPT) methods. By doing so, we provide both a full list of the flaws found and a measurement of the risk posed by each flaw. Spectrum Networks performs both dynamic and static code analysis to not only find flaws in code but also to determine if there are any missing functionalities whose absence could lead to security breaches.

Spectrum’s Network testing is based on proven methodologies and techniques. Using a series of commercial tools, open source tools and in-house built scripts, Spectrum’s security testers provide security testing techniques that identify your security vulnerabilities before Internet hackers find them. Network Testing requires appropriate scoping. As a consequence, it is always appropriate to undertake diligent scoping to ensure that network service assessments are conducted in accordance with client requirements.
