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. They may automatically scan thousands of servers across the internet, looking for any holes.
The best way to minimise risk is to patch up any vulnerabilities before they 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.
You’ll understand how attackers would try to exploit your security.
You’ll know where and how you can improve your security.
Your clients will have peace of mind you take their security seriously.
How an ExternalDefence vulnerability scan 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.
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.
