IT systems can sometimes have vulnerabilities. After a network security vulnerability assessment, many businesses (no matter their size) are surprised to find their IT system can be exploited by a bad actor.
These vulnerabilities can happen because of certain features, flaws, user error, or any combination of these. They differ in nature, but they can all be exploited.
A network vulnerability is any part of software, hardware, or organizational process that can be compromised by a threat. It’s a weakness that can turn into a security breach if exploited.
Threat actors can exploit vulnerabilities to do things like install malware, ransomware, and spyware. They can gain access to a business and their customers’ sensitive information and extract confidential documents and money.
Some of the most common network vulnerabilities are:
A network security vulnerability audit finds these vulnerabilities and lets experts like us know how to not only fix them and keep your business safe but to help it stay safe in the future as well.
Network security vulnerability testing can be difficult and complex, in part because the vulnerabilities are constantly evolving, and threat actors are always finding new ways to gain access to a network.
This is why our network vulnerability assessments are periodic and so thorough. We deal with all types of vulnerabilities, and we know how best to navigate them.
Having an understanding of all of the types of vulnerabilities that exist along with where they fit in a network means that we can keep understanding and fighting new threats, whatever they may be.
We keep on top of the latest tricks that threat actors use. With a network security vulnerability scan, we can see if your network’s defenses will hold against them. If they don’t, then we can help make the changes to your network that will keep your business as safe as possible.
