Employ Active Network Scanning to Eliminate High Risk Vulnerabilities

Keeping up with new vulnerability discoveries

With hundreds of new vulnerabilities announced each month, active network scanning is essential. An automated, frequently used vulnerability assessment and management solution is your best option for the elimination of corporate network vulnerabilities.

Enterprise now needs proactive, routine network scanning to keep up with internal changes and external developments. This may require weekly frequency due to the increasing complexity of vulnerabilities and the speed at which they can now be exploited.

With the increasing complexity of networks, the number of vulnerabilities being discovered daily, the speed at which new exploits are weaponized and the ease of installation of rogue devices, performing vulnerability and network security assessments annually, bi-annually or even quarterly is no longer a viable risk mitigation strategy.

Similarly, the challenge of staying up to date with the current vulnerabilities is now a specialist task. It should now be assigned to a dedicated solution capable of updating automatically for new threats and scanning periodically based on a predefined schedule.

The next level of network scanning

Beyond Security has taken vulnerability scanning to the next level – developing a new way to approach this important task by providing it as an automated scanning solution based on a highly powerful network management tool.

Applythis concept to protecting your home: Many homes have a burglar alarm systems that will provide will report back to a control room when it senses an intrusion. The security company then responds to the threat.

Imagine if the security company was able to send someone over to your house proactively – to physically check your doors and windows, confirm your home is secure and not under any risk of attack – every day. Active network scanning is that frequent check.

Comprehensive network scanning report

Beyond Security’s beSECURE, the Automated Vulnerability Detection System, performs a comprehensive regular vulnerability assessment on the network and produces a detailed report that contains:

  • An Executive Summary of the vulnerabilities found
  • A comprehensive list of all vulnerabilities discovered
  • A range of solutions to those vulnerabilities
  • The list of all simulated attacks performed.

While Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems still play an important role, doing an active network scan for the latest vulnerabilities every day brings your network protection to a new level.
