Vulnerability Management

In today's fast-paced digital landscape, where technology drives innovation and efficiency, the security of your digital assets and sensitive information has never been more critical. Cyber threats continue to evolve, becoming more sophisticated and elusive. To safeguard your organisation's integrity and maintain the trust of your clients, partners, and stakeholders, a proactive approach to cybersecurity is paramount.

We understand the gravity of these challenges and offer a robust solution to fortify your digital defenses: Vulnerability Assessment Services. In this era of heightened cyber risks, it's not enough to rely solely on reactive measures. Instead, taking the initiative to identify vulnerabilities before malicious actors exploit them is the cornerstone of effective cybersecurity.

Whats is Vulnerability Management?

Vulnerability assessment is a systematic process that involves identifying, quantifying, and prioritizing potential weaknesses in your digital infrastructure, applications, and networks.

Our specialist team of cybersecurity experts leverages cutting-edge tools and methodologies to meticulously scan and analyze your systems, searching for vulnerabilities that could be exploited by cybercriminals.

Why Vulnerability Scanning helps
Vulnerability scanning is a proactive technique employed to identify potential weaknesses and security gaps in your digital infrastructure, applications, and networks. Unlike reactive measures that address breaches after they occur, vulnerability scanning takes a preventive approach, allowing you to address vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by cybercriminals.  

Early Detection of Weaknesses: Vulnerability scanning provides an early warning system, identifying vulnerabilities that might otherwise go unnoticed until they're exploited. This empowers your organisation to address issues promptly and avoid potential security breaches.  

Risk Mitigation: By identifying vulnerabilities before cybercriminals can exploit them, you significantly reduce the risk of data breaches, financial losses, and reputational damage. It's a proactive step toward safeguarding your organisation's integrity.  

Regulatory Compliance: In today's regulatory landscape, compliance with cybersecurity standards and regulations is mandatory for many industries. Vulnerability scanning assists in meeting these requirements, helping your organisation avoid penalties and legal consequences.  

Time and Cost Efficiency: Addressing vulnerabilities in the early stages is more cost-effective than dealing with the aftermath of a successful cyber attack. Vulnerability scanning allows you to allocate resources more efficiently and avoid costly recovery efforts.  

Protection of Customer Trust: Clients, partners, and stakeholders expect their sensitive information to be handled with care. Demonstrating your commitment to cybersecurity through vulnerability scanning helps maintain trust and credibility in the eyes of your customers.  

Proactive Defense Strategy: Cyber threats are constantly evolving, and attackers are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Vulnerability scanning equips your organisation with the tools to stay ahead of these threats and adapt your defense strategies accordingly.  

Continuous Monitoring: Cybersecurity is not a one-time effort; it's an ongoing process.

Regular vulnerability scanning ensures that your systems remain resilient in the face of evolving threats, reducing the window of opportunity for potential attackers.
Why Perform Vulnerability Scanning
Regular monthly vulnerability scanning is a critical practice in maintaining a robust cybersecurity posture for organisations. The dynamic nature of the cyber threat landscape demands continuous vigilance, making routine vulnerability scanning an indispensable aspect of proactive defense. By conducting scans on a monthly basis, organisations can stay ahead of emerging threats and promptly address potential vulnerabilities that may arise due to system updates, software changes, or evolving cyber threats. This proactive approach allows for a timely response to emerging risks, reducing the window of opportunity for malicious actors to exploit vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability scanning aligns with the principle of continuous monitoring, a cornerstone of effective cybersecurity. In a rapidly evolving digital environment, new vulnerabilities can emerge, and existing ones may be exploited if not promptly addressed. Regular scans enable organizations to identify and prioritize potential risks based on their severity, facilitating informed decision-making in the allocation of resources for remediation efforts. This proactive and systematic approach not only enhances an organization's security posture but also instills confidence among stakeholders, demonstrating a commitment to ongoing cybersecurity diligence and resilience against a constantly evolving threat landscape.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to get permission from my cloud/hosting provider to carry out vulnerability scanning?
AirSwift Template Image
If your servers are hosted by any of the main cloud service providers (AWS, Azure, Google Cloud, Digital Ocean etc), you typically do not need to notify them or get permission for Scan to run.For smaller providers or dedicated/co-located hosting environments, you should check with your provider as you may need to notify them or get permission in writing.
What IP addresses do you Scan from?
AirSwift Template Image
Our scanner IP addresses change regularly, but you can always query then through the DNS. Our scanner names are:
How many targets can be scanned?
AirSwift Template Image
We can scan any number of addresses, just as long as they are owned by you.
What scanning engine do you use?
AirSwift Template Image
We use multiple scanning engines to fullfil our scans. Presently we use a combination of Greenbone (formally known as OpenVAS), Tenable Nessus, OWASP ZAP and Burp Suite Pro.
Will vulnerability scanning cause disruption?
AirSwift Template Image
The scanners are all industry standard vulnerability scanners. For this reason, it is extremely unlikely for any scan to cause any disruption, performance degradation, outages or any other issues. In exceptionally rare cases, a scan can cause disruption or performance degradation for very old or very poorly configured systems.
How often should Vulnerability Scanning be performed?
AirSwift Template Image
Under GDPR and the UK data protection acts you have a legal responsibility to regularly review and validate your security. We recommended all organisations conduct a vulnerability scan against their internal and external assets at least once a month, as well as after any significant upgrades or modifications to the company network.
What happens after a Vulnerability Scan is completed?
AirSwift Template Image
To help facilitate the remediation process, vulnerability scans should be assessed to ensure that it delivers actionable guidance to drive tangible security improvements. If you require assistance with remediation, you can connect with your account manager who can arrange for the engineering team to assist in remediation.
How much does Vulnerability Scanning cost?
AirSwift Template Image
Vulnerability scanning is a fixed price service offering based on the number of assets you wish to you scan. You can purchase online through our website here.
Can vulnerability scans be run out of hours?
AirSwift Template Image
Yes of course, to run an out of hours scans simply click play on your first scan at the time you want the scan to run. All subsequent scans will take place at this time on your schedule (i.e. the next day, week or quarter).
