To defend your business critical assets, it’s vital to identify and respond to security vulnerabilities before cyber criminals can find and exploit them. All to often traditional vulnerability scans just inundate already overstretched security teams with reports that are too granular or not specific enough to be actionable which leaves your business exposed.
Our managed vulnerability scanning service doesn’t overwhelm you with information on every possible vulnerability. Along with our market leading scanning engines we have a team of highly trained, full time, experienced analysts dedicated to exposing and prioritizing the most relevant gaps in your security and the wider threat landscape.
We typically use multiple scanning engines because relying on just a single engine will not give us enough information and its always good practice to have multiple engines for cross comparison and aids in narrowing down false positives.
We intelligently analyse and correlate these results from our scanning tools with open source information about the current status of vulnerabilities and then finally producing a report with full details including a remediation plan which can then be put into action by your in house or outsourced IT department.
Get the vulnerabilities found
Finding Vulnerabilities in your network is a never ending process and you should be performing regular vulnerabilities scans in order be aware of the threats. We recommended performing scans on a quarterly basis or after a major network change as a minimum as this minimizes your exposure.
Wizard Cyber can offer a fully managed solution or a one off scan but they both include the same great service and results.
We have the widest range of network devices, operating Systems (OS), databases and applications in physical, virtual and cloud infrastructures.
We support non-credentialed, remote scans, credentialed, local scans for deeper, granular analysis and offline auditing.
Compliance & Configuration
450+ templates available to measure against for compliance and configuration. (e.g., FFIEC, HIPAA, NERC, PCI, more) and configuration (e.g., CERT, CIS, COBIT/ITIL, DISA STIGs) auditing.
We also scan for viruses, malware, backdoors host communicating with botnet-infected systems, known & unknown processes and web services linking to malicious content.
We report what matters and can show all vulnerabilities found, the severity, priority and offer a full remediation plan.
Our software is always up to date and aware of what is currently happening in the cyber world so you will be scanned using the latest engines and algorithms.
Importance of Vulnerability Scans
Vulnerability scanning is an organized approach to the testing, identification, analysis and reporting of potential security issues on a network. An external scan will mimic how hackers on the Internet can attempt to gain access to a network.
Vulnerability scanning is a non-destructive form of testing that provides immediate feedback on the health and security of a network. Based on the information provided, the IT team can take informed and direct action to better protect the network.
Vulnerability Scanning Common Questions
Here are some questions we are often asked to help you decide.
What is a vulnerability assessment?
A vulnerability assessment is a process that defines, identifies and classifies the security holes (vulnerabilities) in an environment. Vulnerability analysis can forecast the effectiveness of proposed countermeasures and evaluate their actual effectiveness after they are put into use.
I am not a customer, can you help?
Wizard Cyber offer Vulnerability Scanning as a service and although it is included under our CYBERSHIELD Service we do offer this as a one-off or reoccurring managed service.
What will you find?
The results also vary and we use multiple scanning engines in order to gather information, cross reference and then can produce a report. The final report will show CRITICAL, HIGH, MEDIUM, LOW and INFORMATIONAL vulnerabilities along with full remediation notes.
What does the scan include?
The scan will include a full, in depth scan can include your full internal network, external network or a particular web application/server or device. We can target the scan and build the scope around your requirements.
What else can you scan?
We can scan anything with an IP address and have it look for known vulnerabilities but we can also do a full compliance and configuration report as we have over 450 templates available. e.g., FFIEC, HIPAA, NERC, PCI, more) and configuration (e.g., CERT, CIS, COBIT/ITIL, DISA STIGs) auditing.
Can you advise and provide assistance?
Wizard Cyber are happy to talk through the results with you and assist in getting security holes fixed. We will not supply you with endless information in the report but we will provide an easy to follow list of all issues from CRITICAL to INFORMATIONAL with technical information and a remediation plan.
