Vulnerability Scan

A good cyber security strategy starts with your perimeter defences including Internet-facing applications and networks. Ensuring that there are no holes in your organisation’s digital exterior can set you up with peace of mind and allow you to start working on your interior defences.

What is a vulnerability scan?

Vulnerability scanning is the examination of computer networks to identify weaknesses in security controls that can leave organisations open to cyber-attack.

A vulnerability scanner searches for exposures in computers, devices and applications by collecting information and comparing it to a database of known flaws.

Despite being an important tool for highlighting necessary improvements to cyber security, vulnerability scanners are also used by black hat hackers to discover ways to gain unauthorised access to networks. Failing to proactively scan your environment could therefore give attackers the window of opportunity they need to stage an attack.

Benefits of vulnerability scans

  • Provide a better understanding of your current stance ready for your Cyber Essentials certification
  • Detect known vulnerabilities in your firewall and external-facing services
  • Prevent cyber-attacks before they happen
  • Protect customer data and your brand reputation

Certification to Cyber Essentials Plus also requires organisations to undergo these external vulnerability scans, so getting ahead of the game can be another indication of a potential successful result.

With Cyber Essentials Online you can schedule these external vulnerability scans online and receive a report on your current standing with suggestions on remediation if necessary.
