What is External Vulnerability Scanning?


An external vulnerability scanner conducts scans of exposed external systems that have the potential to be hacked. 

External vulnerability scanners explore all of your potential weaknesses that a hacker would discover and inform you of how to resolve these before they can be exploited.

Why Do I Need External Vulnerability Scanning?

External vulnerability scanning is essential for ensuring the maximum level of protection for your business. Your externally facing systems are the most vulnerable to attacks, whether this is in the form of gaining access to systems, stealing sensitive data or simply crashing your site.

Therefore, in order to protect against these, you need to remain vigilant and the simplest way is to employ regular, year-round vulnerability scans.
