A vulnerability scan uses a suite of tools to scan and probe your IT estate for known vulnerabilities, representing a highly impactful first step to make your organisation considerably less attractive to hackers in a matter of days.
Comtact’s expert assessment provides a comprehensive and detailed snapshot of your IT infrastructure, highlighting your exposure to known vulnerabilities, closing the door to attacks from ransomware and other malware, and can even unearth evidence of previously undetected malicious activity. Do you know if you’ve been hacked?
External vulnerability scans look for vulnerabilities at your network perimeter, such as open ports, or unprotected connections – from the outside looking in.
Internal vulnerability scans look for network vulnerabilities locally, such as required software patches, or incomplete roll-out of security solutions – looking from within.
A comprehensive assessment provides a benchmark for future improvements. As part of a sustained programme, frequent assessments can help organisations keep track of security-related improvements and assist with compliance and accreditation requirements, such as Cyber Essentials or GDPR.
