Test your cyber defences with our VA scans

Vulnerability assessments, also called VA scans, are automated internal and external security scans that give a good indication on the state of your organisation’s security. By testing for known vulnerabilities, you can quickly outline which systems and applications are susceptible to exploitation. More importantly, you can patch these flaws or mitigate them.

Regular managed vulnerability scanning

Regular VA scans should be a part of every organisation’s security operations. For maximum effect, we recommend they’re performed monthly, or when new systems/applications are added or changed. Vulnerability security scans detect known issues, so we also offer more in-depth testing services for businesses who need greater levels of protection.


Bulletproof your security

Vulnerability testing can be added to other Bulletproof security services to form a total threat protection service. This can be done by blending regular VA scans with penetration tests and our managed security monitoring (SIEM) services, creating a powerful security solution.

Frequently asked questions

What is a vulnerability assessment?

A vulnerability assessment or a vulnerability scan is the use of automated tools to scan a network range for any known vulnerabilities. This will help a business to see what they are vulnerable to and where this vulnerability exists, allowing them to take the appropriate steps, such as installing the relevant patches. Regular vulnerability scanning helps to maintain security standards.

What are the benefits of vulnerability scanning?

Vulnerability scans will alert businesses to flaws in their network, allowing them to take the appropriate steps to remediate them. New vulnerabilities are being discovered and made public all the time, so if you’re not getting regular scans you could be at more risk than you realise.

How often should we perform a vulnerability test?

Ideally, vulnerability scans should be run on a monthly basis. Of course, there are times when this is not feasible, but we suggest going no longer than three months without scanning your network for vulnerabilities.

What is the difference between a vulnerability scan and a penetration test?

A vulnerability scan simply scans for known vulnerabilities present on a network or within an application. No attempt is made to exploit these. On the other hand, a penetration test sees a professional actively try to exploit flaws and misconfigurations and attempt to compromise systems anyway they can. A penetration test may make use of a vulnerability scan.
