Overview

Minimise risk exposure with a fully managed vulnerability scanning service

Keeping up with changes to your business’s network can be difficult. Business growth and infrastructure changes means that new vulnerabilities can appear on a daily basis and must be quickly identified and addressed to avoid leaving critical data and assets exposed.

Redscan’s Managed Vulnerability Scanning service combines the latest vulnerability scanning tools and experienced security professionals to proactively inspect your network and provide the insight and guidance needed to address security weaknesses.

Definition

What is vulnerability scanning?

Vulnerability scanning is the examination of computer networks to identify security weaknesses that can leave organisations exposed to cyber threats.

A vulnerability scanner, a highly specialised software tool, 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 identify ways to gain unauthorised access to networks. Failing to proactively scan your environment and address vulnerabilities could present adversaries with the opportunity they need to conduct attacks.

Vulnerabilities

Types of vulnerabilities identified

  • Weak network configuration settings

Benefits

Key service benefits

Our Managed Vulnerability Scanning service supports your organisation’s security and business requirements by:

Helping you stay on top of cyber hygiene

Vulnerability scanning is frequently used by hackers to help identify weak targets. Our managed vulnerability scanning service will help you to stay on top of cyber hygiene and avoid giving hackers an easy way to compromise your organisation.

Supplying actionable remediation guidance

For each vulnerability scan conducted, Redscan’s experts produce a clear and easy to understand report that describes the vulnerabilities discovered, assesses the business impact and provides actionable and prioritised remediation guidance.

Reducing the strain on in-house teams

Scheduling regular scans as well as analysing their outputs can be time and resource-intensive. A vulnerability management service alleviates the strain of undertaking these activities in-house and enables your in-house team to focus on addressing vulnerabilities rather than discovering them.

Guiding future security investments

By working closely alongside your in-house security team, Redscan’s offensive security professionals can help you to develop your long-term security strategy, channel future security investments and ensure that processes are compliant with the latest security standards.
