Firewalls, TLS, and hardened networks are not enough to protect your organization’s assets. There is no such thing as a fully-secure network; data breaches can happen at any time and new threats emerge every day. You can reduce your risk of outside attack, however, by a implementing a comprehensive vulnerability assessment plan. If you proactively work to identify any network weaknesses with a vulnerability scanner, then it is possible to take swift corrective measures if you find them in order to keep your network secure.
Organizations use a wide variety of systems, with Microsoft Windows being by far the most popular choice. Unfortunately, vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in the Windows operating system and Windows software are quite common and can leave you open to outside attack. Using Acunetix Online’s baseline security analyzer and vulnerability scanning security tools, you can quickly and effectively run both network vulnerability tests, as well as web applications scans with the lowest false positive rate in the industry. Acunetix can help you identify critical security vulnerabilities and configuration issues whilst providing you with all the tools you need to develop a successful penetration testing and vulnerability management programme.
Acunetix Online offers advanced risk assessment
Acunetix Online, integrated with OpenVAS, scans for over 50,000 network vulnerabilities. Because our scanning tool is always updating to include the latest threats, each network assessment will always be up-to-date. Our vulnerability scanner also includes integrated vulnerability management features to enable you to scan external portions of your network infrastructure, together with the ability to generate compliance reports such as PCI DSS, NIST 800-53 , HIPAA, ISO 27001 and others.
Though the PCI Security Standards Council mandates quarterly network scans, the most secure systems run them at far greater frequency–monthly, weekly, or even daily. And you don’t have to worry about system inconvenience because Acunetix Online allows you to schedule scans on your timeline and at your convenience to avoid company downtime.
