Tap These Sources Today to Make Vulnerability Scan Data Useful and Actionable

Vulnerability scan data is useful in determining and evaluating whether your system is susceptible to threats, how severe these vulnerabilities are, and how to remediate them if needed. Here are five sources for vulnerability assessments that can provide the data you need to protect your system.

Vulnerability scan data is useful in determining and evaluating whether your system is susceptible to threats, how severe these vulnerabilities are, and how to remediate them if needed. Here are five sources for vulnerability assessments that can provide the data you need to protect your system. 

  1. Host-based Assessment: Host-based assessments and scanners are used to identify vulnerabilities in various network hosts. Host-based scanners can help provide insight into which servers may be vulnerable to attacks and potential future damage.
  2. Network-based Assessment: Network-based scanners assess potential risks or vulnerabilities in private or public wireless and wire-based networks. Network-based scanners help to determine whether there are unknown or unauthorized devices and systems on a network.
  3. Wireless Assessment: Wireless vulnerability scanners provide a company with data surrounding rogue access points and network validation.
  4. Database Assessment: Database scanners perform database assessments to provide information identifying the vulnerabilities of data systems.
  5. Application scans: Application scans detect software and security vulnerabilities in web applications. They also provide you with dynamic analyses of source codes.

Leveraging multiple types of vulnerability scanners is imperative in mitigating risk. Vulcan’s platform integrates with these vulnerability scanners to show actual threats facing your business across all attack surfaces.
