Frequently asked questions

What’s the difference between VA scans and pen testing?

A vulnerability scan is an automated process that simply scans for known vulnerabilities. By contrast, a penetration test is where a security researcher uses their experience, insight and ingenuity to exploit flaws and misconfigurations in an attempt to compromise systems any way they can. A penetration test often starts off with a vulnerability scan as its first stage.

As penetration tests are more in-depth, they’re typically conducted less frequently. However, new security vulnerabilities are disclosed all the time, so regular VA scanning makes sure your systems are still patched against the latest threats.

How often should we run scans?

The frequency of vulnerability scanning should be dictated by your security and risk management strategies, but industry best practices generally recommend monthly, or on significant change to your infrastructure. Increasingly, customers are upping the scan frequency to weekly. No matter how often you scan, the Bulletproof portal makes it quick and easy to manage your scanning regime.

Can I use a free scanning tool?

Free scans are available, but they require a lot of upfront investment in time and expertise to be set-up and configured correctly. If scan isn’t set up right, you won’t get the value from it. By contrast, the Bulletproof VA scanning portal has been designed to make scan management quick and easy. Spend more time improving your security and less time installing, configuring, maintaining and managing scanning engines.

Will a vulnerability scan show me what I need to fix?

Absolutely. Bulletproof’s VA Scan Report shows you the vulnerabilities it detects and also lets you know the exploits that are available for it. Our reports also rank each security weaknesses according to the CVSS standard and let you know its severity.
