A vulnerability scan is recommended when it comes to ensuring the safety and security of your computer systems.
Vulnerability scanning is also required when it comes to examining your Public and Local IP addresses for vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers or crackers in order to compromise your website or PC.
New threats are being discovered on a daily basis that can easily be used by savvy attackers to compromise entire computer systems or networks with the click of a button.
Popular systems that tend to get exploited through vulnerabilities include Web Servers, Mail Servers, and Popular CMS (Content Management Systems) like Joomla and Wordpress.
It is important to scan your website for SQL injection, Cross Site Scripting (XSS), and Command Execution vulnerabilities to ensure its safety.
With the SecPoint Cloud Penetrator, you can request a free vulnerability scan to analyze your site for potential existing vulnerabilities.
After you've done the scan, you will receive detailed reporting in PDF, XML, or HTML format that's sent straight to your email with solutions that should take care of the identified vulnerabilities.
Incidentally, the Cloud Penetrator is the version of SecPoint Penetrator that's available online and can be accessed on any web browser.
This makes vulnerability scanning convenient enough to be done on any computer or network that has a direct link to the Internet since the scanner itself exists "in the cloud" or virtually.
Meanwhile, the Penetrator is the hardware version of the tool that you can connect to any system and do quality pen testing or penetration testing.
The SecPoint Penetrator and Cloud Penetrator are both pen testing tools capable of doing quality vulnerability scans that assess applications, networks, computer systems, or computers for any possible exploitable weaknesses (usually through common plugins and elements like Java or Flash).
Instead of having to wait for news sites and RSS feeds for updates in regards to the latest exploits and vulnerabilities around, you can deploy security measures to your systems or report weaknesses even before the news hits the virtual presses.
