A Vulnerability Assessment or Scan is a (mostly) automated test of computer systems which looks for vulnerabilities. Unlike a Penetration Test, it does not try to exploit any vulnerabilities found. Instead, it just reports on them. As they are mostly automated, many systems can be checked at a time, this makes Vulnerability Assessments extremely cost-effective.
We offer numerous vulnerability assessment (VA) services, whether just a one-off adhoc VA, or regular VAs as a managed service and then delving into more specialised VAs such as Web Application testing.
We offer comprehensive vulnerability assessments of your chosen environment to cover a multitude of common threats. Our scans are usually credentialed, which means that they not only look at what your systems are presenting to the outside world, but they also log onto each system and run thorough checks to identify any known issues and to check that the systems comply with a number of cyber security standards. To do this manually would take hours per host, however, our automated scans undertake the checks in a fraction of the time and without the risk of human error.
