bridging the gap between technology and the people who use it


Vulnerability Scanning Services

Vulnerability scanning can help secure your network and your information by proactively identifying weaknesses in your security posture. Frederick Trevor Consulting specializes in helping organizations discover their security vulnerabilities before hackers can exploit them.

 

The scans are designed to detect more than 5,000 known network, operating system and application vulnerabilities - including the SANS Top 20 -- and are executed without any impact on your devices.

 

Types of scans offered

VS-e External Vulnerability Scan

VS-e is designed to detect and alert you of security flaws at your network perimeter and provide guidance to address these exploits.

 


VS-i Internal Vulnerability Scan

The Internal Vulnerability Scanning (VS-i) service provides the ability to view and scan network assets from behind the corporate perimeter firewall, providing a comprehensive view of the organization's IT environment. Once installed, the VS-i appliance scans a defined list of IP addresses that correspond to servers, file sharing systems, mail relays, employee PCs and more to identify any vulnerabilities based on current threats.
