ExternalDefence: external vulnerability scan
Find out if your system has a vulnerability exposed to the internet so you can fix it before an attacker finds it
Attackers are always on the hunt for weaknesses they can exploit. They won’t necessarily target you directly: the may automatically scan thousands of servers across the internet, looking for holes.
The best way to minimise risk is to patch up any vulnerabilities before the hackers get a chance to find them. And the best way for you to find them is ExternalDefence, a proactive scan of all your internet-facing ports and IP addresses.
What you get
Understanding of how attackers would try to exploit your security
Insight into where and how you can improve your security
The ability to provide your clients with peace of mind that you take their security seriously
How it works
We use software which checks and reports on a wide variety of vulnerabilities in your external network and website. Unlike a real attack, it won’t over-stress your server with things like brute-force attacks. But it will show you where these kinds of attacks might have success.
What it tells you
You’ll receive an executive-level view of the security status of each external IP address and website. You’ll also receive a brief explanatory note about any Critical, Medium or Low severity issues. Where possible we’ll identify the internal server concerned and give an estimate of the time and method to patch the problem.
