Vulnerability Assessments: Is Your Small Business At Risk?
What is a Vulnerability Assessment?
A vulnerability scan detects and classifies system weaknesses of the edge equipment (Router or Firewall) and predicts the effectiveness of countermeasures. Are there any unlocked doors in your environment? What’s the potential for a data breach? We’ll provide a confidential report of any security vulnerabilities we find.
Cybergate IT’s vulnerability assessments employ a unique approach. We consider both technical aspects and your daily business processes. Our recommendations address your IT structure and business functions. If needed, we offer multiple solutions to tackle issues. At Cybergate IT, our goal is to improve our clients’ overall vulnerability management programs. Our strategic guidance helps organizations prevent future vulnerabilities – making our vulnerability assessments a useful tool for enhancing overall network security.
Different Types of Vulnerability Assessments
- Host Assessment – The assessment of critical servers, which may be vulnerable to attacks if not adequately tested or not generated from a tested machine image.
- Network and Wireless Assessment – The assessment of policies and practices to prevent unauthorized access to private or public networks and network-accessible resources.
- Database Assessment – The assessment of databases or big data systems for vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, identifying rogue databases or insecure dev/test environments, and classifying sensitive data across an organization’s infrastructure.
- Application Scans – The identifying of security vulnerabilities in web applications and their source code by automated scans on the front-end or static/dynamic analysis of source code
