Vulnerability Testing

An essential layer in your cyber defences

New vulnerabilities are discovered daily. To keep your organisation, its systems and its data as safe as it can be, you need to be able to detect cyber threats early. This has to be an ongoing task. To help keep you safe, our expert technicians offer Vulnerability Testing – keeping your organisation free from cyber-attack.

We’re licensed and trained to use the Nessus assessment tool. This tool enables us to give you regular assessments of your current vulnerability to a cyber-attack.

Vulnerability Testing – external or internal

For an external-only scope, the process is simple. Provide us with a list of your IP addresses and leave the rest to us. Alternatively, you can opt for internal tests, whereby a laptop, for example, is placed on your network to probe your internal devices.

Each process is transparent and will not affect performance or expose you to additional threats.

Vulnerability Testing for all devices – protecting against hackers

Through Vulnerability Testing, we check that all IP-addressable devices on your network have the latest and necessary patches installed. This will include servers, printers, cameras, phones, wireless APs, routers, switches and any IoT devices.

If a hacker can access any of your internet-connected devices, they can control that device or, maybe, access your servers via that vulnerability and install malware.

Hacked devices can also be used as a weapon in a DDoS attack against websites.

Although your devices may be updated automatically with security patches, some patches may get missed. Nessus vulnerability testing will highlight missing patches so you can install them and reinstate your defences.

In some cases, a device is unable to run the latest operating software because it may stop some functionality of a system’s older components. In this case, a technician will need to determine the best course of action.

A one-off Vulnerability Assessment can cost as little as £150.

We also offer a service where we carry out regular vulnerability tests to ensure you stay safe.
