What is Vulnerability Scanning?
New vulnerabilities are discovered daily, increasing the threat to your business. Vulnerability Scanning allows an organisation to evaluate the security of its applications against the latest threats.
Reduce risk, improve your awareness and stay secure between manual security tests.
Introducing our Smart Scan managed vulnerability service.
We conduct tests, either automatically or manually so you don’t have to and submit the results back to you in an easy to understand actionable format, showing vulnerabilities, and system changes
Our Approach to Vulnerability Scanning
The SmartScan device is configured to suit your requirements, then shipped to your site and can often be
ready to go in a few minutes. The device securely connects back to our Security Operations Centre in Halifax and can only be used by us, following authenticated connection from specific IP’s and trusted appliances.
Our engineers then engage via the device as if they are sitting with you.
All data and reports are encrypted and securely held on our portal for a pre-agreed amount of time, and available for download, after which they are completely erased.
• Reduces Risk
• Increases Visibility
• Tracks Changes
• Improves Security to go in a few minutes.
