What is vulnerability scanning?
Threat actors are constantly on the look-out for weaknesses in your network – whether that’s exposed software, undetected bugs or poorly configured services. Vulnerability scanning reduces the surface area for attackers by proactively identifying your weaknesses.
Vulnerability scanning is needed frequently due to the speed at which the threat landscape evolves. And it should go beyond your internet-connected networks – social engineering techniques mean threat actors are increasingly able to access user devices and identities to exploit vulnerabilities behind firewalls.Talk to us about your vulnerability scanning needs
Proactive and actionable
We know that managing constant threats can be a strain. That’s why our vulnerability scan service can be configured to your particular needs. We’ll also help you prioritise the issues that need attention first.
Flexible and tailorable
Our approach begins with us assessing your vulnerability profile. We deliver 90°, 180°, 270° and 360° services for your operational environment, covering the spectrum of internal and external infrastructure and applications.
Technology and vulnerability discovery
We start with a comprehensive view of your technology estate. We assess the type of operating systems and software you use, including those not directly exposed on the network.
Our managed vulnerability scanning service can be configured to scan your technology in greater depth and identify vulnerabilities that other surface-based vulnerability scanning tools or services would not identify.Talk to us about vulnerability discovery
Vulnerability scanning can reveal a huge number of actual and potential vulnerabilities. This can overwhelm IT teams to the point where they’re unable to undertake any actual mitigations.
We provide reports that aid prioritisation in mitigation activities, allowing your IT team to tackle critical vulnerabilities that represent the greatest return in attack surface reduction.Talk to us about mitigating risk
