Threatsys Appointed 6 Cyber Security Resources under the Guidance of our Lead Security Engineer. The Threatsys Red team is started this project by performing Black Box Testing, White Box Testing along with our Industry Centric Checklist.

Threatsys primarily follows the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) guidelines as a bench mark. However, over time we have developed our own Hybrid Methodology that brings together the best of OWASP, OSSTM, WASC and NIST standards as well as to the CERT-IN guidelines. This hybrid methodology involves a set of comprehensive checks which ensures that no vulnerabilities are missed during testing.

The process involves an active analysis of the SAMS applications for any weaknesses, technical flaws, or vulnerabilities. Any security issues that are found will be presented to the system owner together with an assessment of their impact and often with a proposal for mitigation or a technical solution.

Our methodology is designed to be exhaustive in two dimensions.
Testing for all known attacks & Testing on all possible points of entry.

After Testing The SAMS Web Application from the production url, We have found Several bugs which are further categorised into Critical, High, Medium & Low as per their severity. Our Threatsys team is always focused to make developer friendly reports which can be easily understandable with clear given proof of concepts. We make videos POC with the proper evidances as the security flaws can be easily understood and fixed.

We have provided Each Severity type with a certain time period under which that issue should be fixed. During That period Our team was frequently supporting the developers in order to fix those issues quickly. After the fix was completed our team re-audited the application again to check whether the fixes are done perfectly or not.

Our Team has issued the Re-Audited Reports and coordinated with our CERT-IN Associates for the Verification of the Reports. along with the reports and fixings were verified and we have successfully provided Ready to Host CERT-IN Certificate within the timeline.
