A vulnerability scan will check your computer network and identify any devices on it, including printers, scanners, laptops, mobile phones. Once identified we will scan all these devices to see if there are any known vulnerabilities. This could be a laptop using windows XP which is very insecure, to an old server php version or printer firmware.
Why do I need a vulnerability scan?
A vulnerability scan detects flaws in your computer network, alerting you to any weaknesses which could be exploited by hackers to steal information or cause harm to your company.
Generally, the weakest point of any system is human. If entry to a network is gained by a member of staff clicking on something they shouldn’t, like a bad link in an email. Hackers will look for devices on the network to infect to further monitor and steal information.
