WHAT IS VULNERABILITY SCANNING?
Vulnerability Scanning is the intelligence driven deployment of scanning engines 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 MANAGE YOUR OWN VULNERABILITY SCANNING?
For organisations looking to take a more proactive approach to creating and maturing their own internal security programs regular vulnerability scanning is often the first step. Through procuring and deploying your own vulnerability scanning system you can perform regular vulnerability assessments against both your internal and externally facing estate and identify vulnerabilities that are commonly exploited by automated tools and manual attackers alike.
While vulnerability scanners are no replacement for manual, human lead penetration tests they do provide the ability to make ongoing security improvements and take a more proactive approach to vulnerability management.
