Every time a computer system in your organization is connected to the internet, it puts your infrastructure security at the risk of exploitation by external malicious elements. Since working without an internet connection is next to impossible in today’s digital era, vulnerability scanning by WebSecure can turn out to be a highly useful tool for your organization.
Vulnerability scanning makes use of an organized approach to the testing, identification, analysis and reporting of potential issues on an organization’s security infrastructure. An external scan simulates how malicious elements on the Internet might attempt to gain access to a network.
On the other hand, running an internal scan from inside the network helps detect the weak spots that might not be visible to an external entity, but can prove to be harmful. The results formed by combining these two approaches can show a clear path that any external threat might take after gaining access to your organization’s network, along with calculating how much data is at the risk of exploitation.
Non-destructive form of testing
A non-destructive form of testing, vulnerability scanning provides immediate feedback on the health of the infrastructure security of your organization. Depending upon the information provided, your IT team can take direct action to better protect your network and precious data.
Web Secure’s vulnerability scanner automatically scans your external or internal network on a regular basis to detect new vulnerabilities. It also provides access to detailed reports and remediation recommendations. Highly skilled solution architects at WebSecure are always ready to discuss your security stance and suggest remedial actions.
A part of a greater vulnerability management plan
The most important aspect of vulnerability scanning is to see it not as an independent process, but as a part of a greater vulnerability management plan. The threats detected by vulnerability scan require follow up in form of security solutions such as patching in order to ensure comprehensive protection for your organization.
If your organization does not have an IT department in place for carrying out vulnerability management procedures such as vulnerability scanning, you can always seek help from professionals at WebSecure to safeguard your invaluable data.
