What is Vulnerability Assessment?
It is important to do regular network vulnerability scanning of all your systems to ensure that your configurations are correctly set and that you have the proper security patches applied.
Due to the fact that SecPoint monitors a wide range of networks in the financial, governmental, and private sectors, we have an extensive professional experience of the different real world attacks presently being performed throughout the globe. We then make use of this knowledge to extend and improve our attack block database.
What is Network Vulnerability Assessment?
A network vulnerability assessment evaluates all your systems as they are seen remotely from the Internet on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis. From there, potential security vulnerabilities and changes in the network that could be exploited by attackers are revealed before they are taken advantage of.
All IP addresses are analyzed and detailed recommendations for the identified vulnerabilities are given. When changes occur or new discoveries are identified, then the user will be notified by email.
How Often Should a Network Vulnerability Assessment Be Initiated?
There is a high amount of new vulnerabilities—such as human configuration errors and other changes in the network structure due to expansion at most customer locations—are discovered on a daily basis.
It is recommended for you to perform a network vulnerability assessment on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis to ensure that you are being scanned for the latest threats and alerted immediately when you are at risk.
With the Penetrator and Portable Penetrator, you can perform a vulnerability assessment on your system and find the bugs and security holes in it before the attackers do!
