WHAT IS VULNERABILITY SCANNING?
Vulnerability Scanning is the intelligence driven deployment of scanning engines, updated with information from the latest threat intelligence feeds, to ensure the security of your systems, services and applications from a number of common attack vectors, exploited by both automated and manual attackers.
WHY CONDUCT A VULNERABILITY SCAN?
As new vulnerabilities are identified through manual techniques, this wealth of knowledge is used to update and improve scanning engines to identify the latest set of known threats.
Vulnerability scanning solutions can provide a method of conducting security assessments at regular intervals to ensure that your systems and services are maintained to a secure standard and kept updated against the latest emerging threats.
Although not a replacement for manual security testing, vulnerability scanning can ensure you are protected throughout the year against the most common and newly exploitable issues until a penetration tester can provide a more detailed and comprehensive overview regarding the state of your security.
A common request for many compliance requirements is whether your company conducts regular security assessments and maintains a secure business environment. Vulnerability scanning can provide an answer to this requirement and ensure your systems, services and data stay protected.
As part of our approach, our Penetration Testers use a combination of the most effective automated tools and techniques to identify vulnerabilities across your systems and services. Our extensive reports provide a thorough assessment of each vulnerability and provide business context alongside each finding.
This is supplemented by technical and non-technical descriptions to assist in prompt remediation activities and provide a thorough understanding of each issue.
A Vulnerability Scan and report will allow your business to:
- Receive assurance around the security posture of your systems and services.
- Make ongoing improvements to a systems security via specialist support, advice and consultancy.
- Adhere to regulatory bodies who require regular Vulnerability Scanning to be performed.
- Gain access to a dedicated team of specialist CREST Registered penetration testers who use the latest tools and techniques to accurately assess and identify emerging threats
