Mossé Security provides Vulnerability Assessment services to organisations, and our Certified Consultants are guaranteed to discover a vulnerability or weakness before a threat actor is able. Furthermore, many information security compliance standards require periodic vulnerability assessments to be performed against critical systems. Critical and high risk vulnerabilities must then be remediated in a timely timeframe, often within 30 days.
Penetration testing involves manual identification and exploitation of vulnerabilities by a professional ethical hacker, whilst vulnerability assessments are limited to the use of automated tools.
Mossé Security includes vulnerability assessments in its penetration testing services as automated scanners can test many more systems and user inputs than a human ever could. They are very effective as identifying missing security patches, default credentials, outdated software and operating system versions, unencrypted network protocols and simple application security vulnerabilities. However, our Certified Consultants are capable of identifying vulnerabilities that automated tools are unable to, particularly critical security flaws that require a deep understanding of software code and infrastructure configuration and deployment practices.
Vulnerability assessments are good cybersecurity hygiene practices.
They are cost effective and very efficient at identifying easily exploitable vulnerabilities that have been weaponised in attack tools such as Metasploit.
Undertaking periodical vulnerability assessments will assist you:
Ideally every 30 or 90 days.
You should measure improvements over time and use the analytics generated from the scans to demonstrate cybersecurity ROI.
In some cases you can and are encouraged to (if you have the IT personnel capable of running basic tools). We recommend that you try free scanners such as OpenVAS, and Nuclei.
