External Vulnerability Scanning Services

More information



External Vulnerability Scanning

Vulnerability scanning is the systematic identification, analysis and reporting of technical security vulnerabilities that unauthorized parties and individuals may use to exploit and threaten the confidentiality, integrity and availability of business and technical data and information. External vulnerability scanning specifically examines an organization's security profile from the perspective of an outsider or someone who does not have access to systems and networks behind the organization's external security perimeter.

What can external vulnerability scanning do for you?

External vulnerability scanning helps an organization identify and remediate vulnerabilities within their IT environment before hackers and thieves gain access to, modify or destroy confidential information. ControlCase's External Vulnerability Scanning services help our clients manage their vulnerabilities more rapidly and cost effectively.
