What is Vulnerability Scanning

Perform real-time scanning on your system entry points

Technical vulnerabilities are some of the most critical risk areas. Unpatched operating systems, third-party application flaws, open ports, and configuration errors can all lead to security incidents. Vulnerability assessments are the process of identifying those technical vulnerabilities through a combination of automated tools, expert interpretation of the findings, and remediation recommendations.

External Vulnerability Scan

Focuses on your organization’s technology perimeter. Scanning tools are used to enumerate and assess your vulnerabilities.

Internal Vulnerability Scan

Focuses on your organization’s internal networks. Scanning tools are used to assess your internal systems and infrastructure devices.

Web Application Scanning

Utilizes automated tools to evaluate web applications for vulnerabilities such as Cross-site scripting, SQL Injection, Command Injection, Path Traversal and insecure server configurations.

Dark Web Scanning

Exposure if your personal identifiable information (PII).  A dark web scan will search the dark web for you, combing through its large databases of stolen usernames, passwords, Social Security numbers, and credit card numbers for sale.
