MANAGED VULNERABILITY SCANNING SERVICE

Our managed vulnerability scanning services help you to identify new vulnerabilities and misconfigurations across your networks and applications. This is a fundamental component of the security manual penetration testing program ensuring continuous checks to help remediate security risks and achieve a strong cyber security posture.

Managed vulnerability scanning aims to identify security vulnerabilities affecting an organisation. It provides input to the managed vulnerability assessment process, where vulnerabilities are assessed and categorised in terms of actual risk to the organisation. Managed vulnerability scanning is a vital component of a cyber security testing program offering constant identification of new vulnerabilities in IT systems. 

The issues discovered are presented in easy-to-understand formats with actionable guidance. This input is essential to quantify and categorise risks before approaching risk remediation.

A specialist-managed vulnerability scanning solution offers constant checking, and our consultant’s expertise offers a handy approach to tactical risk remediation rather than getting consumed by a lengthy report and large volumes of scan data.

A good security partner is more than a ‘point and click scan’; they help you to avoid:

  1. Risk – Reduce the noise that is unnecessary and adds to the chaos

  2. False alarms – Untrusted data that’s not a finding

  3. Confusion – Ambiguous data that must be reviewed.

Vulnerability Scanning Process

What is Managed Vulnerability Scanning Service process?

The main objective of managed vulnerability regularly scanning is to provide constant insight into vulnerabilities and misconfigurations on an ongoing monitoring basis.

Managed Vulnerability assessment is a component of vulnerability management that is a time-limited exercise aimed at finding vulnerabilities in your cloud environments. A managed vulnerability scan is an ongoing process that is more comprehensive and aimed at continuous identification and identifies security weaknesses.

The managed vulnerability scanning tools consist of thousands of checks and signatures used to probe open ports and vulnerability scanning services, collect information and discover comprehensive coverage of vulnerabilities that threat actors could use.

The presence of false positives is a downside to this process, which is taken care of by adding a human edge to the process where all issues are manually checked against the targets in scope. Problems range from simple information leakage to broken access controls or a lack of essential patches.

Vulnerability management service is broadly divided into two main categories, i.e. Network vulnerability scanning and Web applications vulnerability scanning. This vulnerability scanner identifies issues related to services in an internal network (inside a perimeter) or over the internet (external) across operating systems and services. Vulnerability scanners exist for several specialist subcategories, such as cloud infrastructure, because misconfiguration of cloud platforms is the number one threat to cloud security.

An internal vulnerability could be exposure of database to the entire company, an open share, etc. A web application vulnerability scanning detects exploitable vulnerabilities across the application components, such as checking against OWASP Top 10 application and API security issues. 

The vulnerability scanning process takes in all your known software vulnerabilities and feeds them into the risk exposure remediation process, making it an effective way to assess risks for a business.

When you make the mistake of buying vulnerability scans disguised as assessment, it’s not really a vulnerability scanning in your business context – it’s not a highly specialised software tool, it will provide scan results with no expertise or insight on how these could affect us if they were exploited by cybercriminals.

Web server weaknesses come in many different forms. Some of the most common include flaws in web server software, misconfigured web servers, and web server vulnerabilities that have been exploited by hackers. Our vulnerability scanning services can help to identify these weaknesses so that they can be fixed before they are exploited.

 

Our vulnerability scanning services can help you identify insecure user passwords, policy controls, and configuration issues that could put your organisation at risk. We use the latest tools and techniques in our vulnerability scanning and provide you with a detailed report of our findings. We will also help you remediate any of these issues that are found.

Denial of service (DoS) attacks are a type of attack in which an attacker attempts to make a system or network unusable or significantly slow down the performance of a system by flooding it with requests or data. Our expert managed vulnerability scanning solutions help you identify potential denial of service vulnerabilities in systems and networks so that they

In the world of cyber security, authentication and segmentation are two important concepts. Authentication refers to the process of verifying that a user is who they claim to be. Segmentation, on the other hand, is the automated process of dividing a network into smaller sections in order to limit the spread of damage in the event of an attack.

Our vulnerability scanning helps you to identify authentication and segmentation issues, as well as sensitive data leakages. By identifying these vulnerabilities, you can take steps to mitigate them and protect your organisation from potential attacks.

Web application weaknesses can put your entire system at risk. That’s why our vulnerability scanning as a service exists- to help you identify OWASP weaknesses before they become a problem. We’ll scan your system and provide you with a report of any potential vulnerabilities. From there, you can decide how to best address the issue.

At Cyphere, we understand that network security is a crucial part of any organisation’s IT infrastructure. That’s why we offer a vulnerability scanning solution that can identify weaknesses in access control and network security across internal networks and cloud-based assets. By identifying these weaknesses, we can help you take steps to mitigate them and strengthen your overall network security posture.

Benefits of managed vulnerability scanning

  • Reduced risk of attack
  • Faster identification and remediation of vulnerabilities
  • Improved compliance posture
  • Greater visibility into the security posture
  • Increased efficiency in vulnerability management processes.

New remediate vulnerabilities are continually emerging, this can leave organisations exposed to emerging issues in the window between tests. When it comes to protecting your organisation from cyberattacks, managed vulnerability scanning is a critical piece of the puzzle.

By identifying and remediating vulnerabilities in a timely manner through vulnerability management services, you can reduce the risk of an attack and improve your organisation’s compliance posture.
