What is a vulnerability scan?
A vulnerability scan is a scan that is designed to look for areas of exploitation on a computer, network or application to identify security holes. The scan looks for, and classifies, system weaknesses in computers, networks and communications equipment and predicts the effectiveness of countermeasures. Our solution, by AppCheckNG, is based predominantly on automated scanning processes which uncovers information and then compares this list against a database of known vulnerabilities.
A vulnerability scan allows you to identify the risks of your computer systems and allow you to easily detect which areas have vulnerabilities associated. These may be made up of unpatched software, security misconfigurations, default credentials and more. Through the use of a scan you are ensuring that the risk of compromise is reduced.
