SmartScan vulnerability management

Our managed vulnerability service that helps you stay on top of your vulnerabilities.


Reduce risk, improve your awareness and stay secure

New vulnerabilities are discovered all the time, which means that the risk to your organisation is increasing daily. With more staff working remotely, it is vitally important that systems are effectively monitored to prevent potential breaches.

SmartScan provides visibility and management of all your systems. It has been built not just for your on-premise based IT estate but also for remote users and even cloud-based assets, including Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP).

How it works

As this is a continual service, evidence is gathered on an ongoing basis that can be used to assist with Cyber Essentials Plus certification and other compliance aims.

SmartScan from Cognisys, powered by Qualys™, should only be considered as a single aspect of your cyber security strategy and does not remove the requirement for additional security services and assessments to be undertaken.

  • Utilises multiple expert security tools along with proprietary code to analyse vulnerabilities.
  • Perpetual analysis of internal and external network infrastructure for new vulnerabilities providing capability to act and remediate fast.
  • Scans are conducted across all devices both within the network, remote and cloud locations.
  • Categorisation of vulnerabilities into Critical/High/Medium/Low in order to prioritise and combat potential exploitation effectively.
  • Identification of new vulnerabilities in real time.
  • Validation of findings by experienced consultants reducing the potential for false positives and adding an expert human layer.
  • Allows for remediation of new security threats on an ongoing and immediate basis.
  • Our consultants research remediation for all vulnerabilities found, which allows for efficient action to be taken by your internal staff.
  • Reports generated can be easily distributed to relevant asset managers for remedial actions.
Cognisys provides regular reporting via dedicated account management, internal support and technical teams, as appropriate.

Additional information is available via our SmartView platform to keep you fully updated at all times.

Don’t just take our word for it

Matthew Willman, CTO of Liaison Group, explains how SmartScan has become a key tool in helping them manage their vulnerabilities, showing improvements, as well as their path of remediation.

Matt explains:

“This is part of a solution that helps us manage our estate and our endpoints and our virtual machines and Microsoft, better!”
