Infrastructure Scanning

AppCheck uses a sophisticated framework of automated techniques to thoroughly scan your organization’s systems and identify vulnerabilities that may present a potential threat. We track the latest Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) disclosures, and our CPE (Common Platform Enumeration) detection provides unrivalled accuracy in assessing the applicability of newly disclosed threats to your own unique technical environment. In combination, this grants AppCheck the ability to identify vulnerabilities that other tools may miss, providing you with the most accurate assessment available of your infrastructure’s security.

Known Vulnerability Database (VulnFeed)

While AppCheck is capable of detecting Zero Day vulnerabilities with powerful DAST scanning techniques, we also report “known vulnerabilities” identified to be affecting your systems based on version number detection.


AppCheck uses a propriety known vulnerability database (VulnFeed) which is constantly updated with hundreds of vulnerabilities that are published every day, allowing new vulnerabilities to be reported as soon as possible

Each vulnerability in VulnFeed is reviewed by AppCheck’s team to ensure high levels of consistency and accuracy of the information and remediation advice

Complete Coverage

Proactively identify and remediate a constantly updated catalogue of known vulnerabilities

Over 20,000 product detections and tens of thousands of CVE detections

Authenticated scanning capabilities

Detailed reports show clear and actionable recommendations for remediation

Benefits of AppCheck

Deep Vulnerability Discovery

AppCheck performs a deep scan of your organization’s network to identify potential vulnerabilities in your network devices, servers, and workstations. Our network scanning includes authenticated scanning, which allows us to detect vulnerabilities that may not be present in unauthenticated scans.

Discover new vulnerabilities first

AppCheck maintains a continuously updated and enriched catalogue of disclosed vulnerabilities sourced from NVD and multiple vendors allowing new vulnerability data to be reported by the scanner immediately.

Complete Vulnerability Management

All vulnerabilities are tracked and managed through the vulnerability management platform, giving you a complete system overview to show you what the outside world sees. With just a click you can produce professional penetration testing style reports which include a detailed technical narrative and remediation steps for all findings. AppCheck provides the full picture.

Scalable Solutions

AppCheck allows you to scan for vulnerabilities at scale with the click of a button. Discover the latest security flaws like a team ten times the size. Whether you are scanning 1 or 1,000 web applications, AppCheck has a solution to fit your needs. Each licence offers unlimited scans and unlimited users so you can share findings across all teams and scale as you grow.

Cover Internal and External Estate

Extend the capabilities of the AppCheck infrastructure vulnerability scanner by also leveraging the power of our award winning web application vulnerability scanner to gain additional insights into security vulnerabilities within exposed web services.

Advanced Configuration

Whether you just want to run a quick scan or are a power user who needs ultimate control, AppCheck allows complete flexibility. Scans can be run in a few clicks using profiles built by our security experts or built from scratch using the profile editor.

Why carry out Infrastructure vulnerability scanning?

Infrastructure components, owing to their expansive and intricate nature, pose a persistent attraction for malicious hackers due to the formidable challenge of securing them effectively.

Conducting regular infrastructure vulnerability scanning allows organisations to identify and assess vulnerabilities within their network infrastructure, servers, routers, switches, and other critical components.

This supports effective patch management, early detection to prevent potential security incidents, risk mitigation, efficiency of security teams and in meeting compliance standards.

How does Infrastructure scanning work?

Infrastructure vulnerability scanning focuses on the detection of vulnerabilities within the portion of an organisation’s attack surface that extends beyond web (HTTP) services alone. This typically includes a substantial and often overlooked range of devices, services and protocols, any of which could potentially contain exploitable vulnerabilities. Examples include the services (such as Mail or DNS) running on both servers and workstations, as well as end user software, and network devices such as routers, switches and firewalls. It identifies and flags potential security issues, allowing organisations to remediate them proactively before they can be exploited by potential attackers.

The AppCheck scanner identifies open ports that operated services have exposed on your network, and then subjects each to active analysis to identify the service that it is bound to. Futher subtle probing and response analysis permits the scanner to tease out further details, such as the likely version number of the exposed service. The scanner uses this information to gain an understanding of the organisation’s total attack surface – the services that a remote unauthenticated attacker may target in order to compromise your environment.

Built-in support for multiple authentication protocols and services allows the AppCheck vulnerability scanner to establish authenticated connections (sessions) to remote hosts and devices, permitting it to directly audit the version numbers of installed software.

AppCheck’s proprietary Vulnerability Database Service is then used to identify  vulnerabilities that are known to impact each identified software version. The AppCheck scanner has unparalleled access to constantly updated vulnerability information from a variety of sources including (but not limited to) data from the NVD API, which allows it to identify and report many more vulnerabilities version than ever before.

In addition to the constantly expanded catalogue of vulnerabilities that AppCheck is capable of detecting based on enumerated version information, the scanner also performs “active” checks to identify further vulnerabilities due to issues such as environment-specific security misconfigurations which an attacker may pursue in order to gain access to your systems or data.
