Vulnerability Scanning

Vulnerability Scanning

How easy is it for hackers to get access to your data?

Are your web applications your Cyber Security weakness?

  • Are you concerned about the security of your web applications?

    SQL Injection is still the number one vulnerability, identify these before they compromise your business

  • Do you have business critical apps that need to be secure?

    Ensure that they are deployed with security in mind? Don't let these be the weak link that allows criminals in

  • Do you want the ability to scan regularly?

    Our service allows you to schedule scans to run at any given date, time and scan at regular recurring intervals with email notification

Why should your business run regular vulnerability scans?

Using a variety of tools we can detect security flaws and vulnerabilities in websites, applications and external infrastructures. If you have business critical applications then this is service you must have.

  • It has the ability to identify zero day attacks
  • Identify all known web application vulnerabilities and provide exploit capabilities to demonstrate their impact and eradicate false positives
  • It tests for all the critical vulnerabilities in the OWASP Top 10 including SQL Injection and XSS
  • You have the ability to run the test as many times as you want through your contract term
  • We are able to offer remediation advice on the results that are found

Whilst we carry out the testing using automated tools, our Vulnerability Assessments are carried out with a large degree of manual interpretation and assessment so that the findings ultimately presented are both easy to understand and contain actionable next steps.




What is a Vulnerability Scan?

A vulnerability scan is a technical assessment which measures how secure your business is at protecting your data.

It is based predominantly, on an automated scanning process which uncovers host operating system along with services running and then compares this list against a database of known vulnerabilities.

The aim of the assessment is to present a list of targets which have vulnerabilities such as out of date software and misconfigurations which could be exploited to gain access to an internal protected environment or extract information.

Infrastructure Security

Web application vulnerabilities are not the only threat to your network perimeter. Unpatched software, configuration weaknesses and software vulnerabilities also need to be managed effectively. In addition to the web application scanning Equilibrium can perform vulnerability scans across your external network infrastructure. We believe that securing the infrastructure is best achieved using a multi-layered approach. As every network is unique not every Security Audit is identical. But it usually does include the assessment of the following areas:

  • What vulnerabilities exist within the web application that would have been difficult or impossible for standard automated vulnerability tests to uncover
  • Endpoint Security
  • Infrastructure device hardening
  • Perimeter Firewall
  • WAN Connectivity
  • Application Check

This involves examining technical controls and various areas of the network infrastructure to document security risks and offer recommendations for improvement.
