What Is It?
Understanding your attack surface enables you to resolve vulnerabilities before they are exploited.
Vulnerability management solutions automatically analyse internal and external threats, give visibility of shadow IT systems and report critical risks.
Why Do You Need It?
A regular and automated vulnerability scanning management solution should form part of your basic cyber security housekeeping programme.
Five out of ten external websites that we scan, result in a high-level risk being exposed and subsequently resolved.

A vulnerability management solution provides the identification and management of both internal and external threats to your organisation.
It's obviously difficult to know what you don't know; the vulnerability scan quickly highlighted our critical security holes.
