Continuously discover new security weaknesses with powerful vulnerability scanning.
Vulnerability scans uncover flaws in your infrastructure, identifying areas of improvement.
Vulnerability testing gives you a security posture overview, helping you manage your cyber risks.
Protect your business 24/7 with automated scans for continuous security.
Our simple to use dashboard prioritises test results and gives you key remediation guidance.
Vulnerability scans, also known as VA scans, are automated internal and external security assessments that give a good indication on the state of your organisation’s security posture. By testing for known vulnerabilities, you can quickly outline which systems and applications are susceptible to exploitation.
Plus our helpful after-action reports enable you to quickly patch and mitigate the uncovered security weaknesses.
Regular vulnerability scans are ideal for on-going management of your cybersecurity risks. Security best practices recommend implementing a VA scan regime to complement your penetration testing schedule, giving the perfect blend of security and affordability.
Bulletproof is a certified provider of VA scanning and cybersecurity services. We help thousands of businesses of all sizes to protect their brand and assets against today’s threat landscape.
Our managed and unmanaged VA scanning services allows you to benefit from a truly best-fit package that meets your exact security requirements.
Simple to use dashboard makes it easy to quickly understand and prioritise scan results.
Find out how easy it is to secure your systems against hackers with regular Bulletproof VA scanning.

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.
VA scans, or vulnerability scans, are sometimes sold as automated penetration tests by other cyber security vendors. Despite both VA scans and penetration tests being key security tools, they are different, and are used to achieve different security objectives. Vulnerability scans are a great way to stay on top of newly discovered security flaws in an automated and continuous way, whereas penetration tests are more in-depth engagements that use human insight and ingenuity to uncover security weaknesses that VA scans alone never could.
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.
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.
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.
The speed at which security weaknesses can be found with vulnerability scanning tools surpasses that of human capability, which is why a VA scan is an effective approach to finding vulnerabilities across your systems and applications. Vulnerability scanning can be used to detect any known potential security flaws and weaknesses to help find and fix gaps in your security setup. It can also help to identify and mitigate those vulnerabilities that could lead to data breaches or other cyber-attacks, and indicate when you need to upgrade your security software.
It’s best practice to use an up-to-date scanner to detect current and recently discovered vulnerabilities, and to generate clear reports for internal and external SOC and IT departments. Bulletproof’s vulnerability scanning tools show you what you need to fix straight away and ranks each threat in order of severity to help you and your team prioritise tasks. Vulnerability scanning is a valuable tool to have in your armoury, however you should not expect it to detect every vulnerability. VA scans are automated and only flag known vulnerabilities, and the growing sophistication of attacks mean that automated tools simply cannot detect complex vulnerabilities. In contrast, penetration tests go one step further and involve a human element that strengthens your business’s chances of identifying weaknesses which is why best practice involves running vulnerability scanning and penetration testing together to identify and mitigate security threats.
A vulnerability scanning tool is software that scans computer systems and log data to detect vulnerabilities and security breaches within a network. The tools generate alerts and reports for security operations and IT teams, suggesting ways to fix vulnerabilities discovered during the scan such as malware or network configuration flaws. It’s important to understand the capabilities of vulnerability scanning tools to ensure your business does not fall short of providing adequate protection against cyber threats, and as vulnerability scanners are automated, you should not expect it to detect every vulnerability as new and undetected threats emerge. Carrying out ad hoc penetration tests is recommended alongside regular vulnerability scanning to find and fix any threats that have not been picked up by the scanner.
