Vulnerability Scanning

Bolster defences with continuous vulnerability scanning

Even if you have the most sophisticated security system, your company may still be vulnerable to attack. That's why vulnerability scanning is such an essential element of cybersecurity - by running regular scans, any potential flaws can be identified and fixed before they are taken advantage of by malicious actors. By continuously checking for vulnerabilities in this way, it ensures that no new issues go unnoticed or remain unaddressed.

Service Overview

How continuous vulnerability scanning works

Vulnerabilities refer to software coding flaws and system misconfigurations that can provide attackers with direct, unauthorized access to a system or network. For example, a hacker can exploit a software vulnerability to gain access to sensitive information or a malicious user can exploit a misconfigured service to gain privileged access.

Vulnerability scanners help prevent data breaches and system exploitation by ensuring systems are properly configured, patched and kept up-to-date.


Identify every exploitable loophole

To ensure that no stone is left unturned, Paladin's technology employs a strategy of both internal and external scans. This helps us identify any potential threats, such as outdated software, unpatched security holes, poorly encrypted data, misconfiguration errors, authentication issues, or human errors that could be exploited by malicious actors.


Report, remediate and keep scanning

Reports including any high-priority vulnerabilities are generated with each scan. Because the scans occur so frequently, all systems should ideally be quickly patched by IT teams to reduce risk. Even more efficiency can be gained by combining vulnerability scanning with a security ops centre to help manage and simplify this process.


Maintain a framework for compliance

Vulnerability scanning is essential in today's threat landscape and is also required by nearly every major data protection regulation worldwide, including GDPR. Therefore, if any organisation wants to comply, vulnerability scanning can’t be ignored. Apart from compliance, IT security frameworks like NIST suggest vulnerability scanning as a best practice.
