What is a Vulnerability Assessment Service?
A security vulnerability assessment is a testing method to identify and classify these evolving cyber threats affecting an asset, i.e. a server, a workstation or a device. New and more sophisticated vulnerabilities are appearing almost daily. Cyphere’s Vulnerability management assessment and services help businesses identify, quantify and categorise security risks with ongoing support. This includes remediation guidance explained to your information security team to ensure the safety and security of modern hyper-connected solutions.
The goal of the vulnerability assessment service is to deliver an output free from false-positives that is useful for business after conducting internal and external vulnerability scans.

Why are Vulnerability Assessments important?
The speed with which new vulnerabilities are discovered in various products makes it important to identify and mitigate risks before hackers exploit any flaws. It is a crucial element for risk assessments.
Cyphere offers managed services and standalone vulnerability scanning exercise with added human intelligence added to eliminate false positives. However, this is not a subsequent manual validation as demonstrated via penetration testing. For all our managed services customers, penetration testing is performed once annually to provide a deep understanding of issues, including detected vulnerabilities with all the possible vectors around attack likelihood.
These IT security vulnerability assessments are a useful way to assess larger networks regularly in shorter time periods and are a useful way to prepare for vulnerability testing.

Common Types of Vulnerability Assessments to find security risks
Tools used during the Vulnerability Assessment process
An IT security assessment is performed using vulnerability scanning tools by approved scanning information security vendors to scan for known vulnerabilities. These automated scanning tools are a mix of open-source and commercial software such as Nessus, Qualys, OpenVAS, etc.
Our assessment involves automated and manual approaches to ensure customer investment returns with insights into company’s security. Depending upon the scope, efforts and resources needed for the project are planned in line with customer schedule.
For technical assessment, scanners and further scripts, tools and utilities are used relevant to web applications, networks and devices. To scan web applications from the outside, vulnerability testing includes the use of scanning tools and databases to identify security flaws such as SQL Injection, Cross-site Scripting (XSS), Command Injection, Path Traversal and insecure server configuration.
