Vulnerability Assessments

A vulnerability assessment is the process of identifying and calculating the severity of vulnerabilities across systems to help a firm better understand their risk posture. The result of a vulnerability assessment is a list of vulnerabilities that are typically prioritized by severity.

Vulnerability assessments are commonly performed by using automated testing tools such as web and network scanners. A vulnerability assessment can be performed on both the external or internal network. Vulnerability assessments can also be conducted on network device configurations.

If you have not performed a vulnerability assessment, or your security maturity level is low, or you have a high security maturity level and want to preserve and verify the current security posture, a vulnerability assessment is a great option.

Increase in high and critical vulnerabilities that were uncovered from 2016 to 2017.
Of businesses are vulnerability free. Several new vulnerabilities are found daily.

External Vulnerability Assessment

  • We run scans against your perimeter to identify potential vulnerabilities that a hacker may try to exploit
  • We provide a list of vulnerabilities with recommendations
  • After the items have been corrected, we verify that any new controls implemented are working as intended

Internal Vulnerability Assessment

  • We run scans across all of your network devices including servers, desktops, laptops, access points, printers, internet of things devices, video and voice, etc.
  • We generate a list of vulnerabilities and provide recommendations
  • We work with you to ensure the vulnerabilities have been remediated by running a verification scan of any high or critical finding

Network Device Configuration Vulnerability Assessment

  • We scan certain network device configurations to identify potential mis-configuration
  • We manually inspect certain configurations as a secondary check
  • We provide recommendations based on industry accepted standards
