Network Vulnerability Assessment & Scanning
No system is foolproof, and that includes your network. Just because you have a firewall in place and antivirus software running doesn’t mean your data is safe. Hackers are getting more sophisticated with every passing day, and they can easily find their way into your network if you’re not careful. That’s why it’s vital to introduce regular network vulnerability assessment and scanning practices into your IT routine. By identifying any weak points in your security infrastructure, you can fix them before they become a problem.
However, like flossing your teeth or getting your car inspected every 3000 miles, just because something is good doesn’t mean everyone does it when they need to. There are numerous reasons why a company may excuse its irregular assessment and scanning practices: low budgets, lack of qualified personnel, insufficient tools, improper training, no scheduling availability, etc.
Thankfully, you don’t have to handle your network vulnerability assessment and scanning responsibilities on your own. In many cases, it’s better to let a specialized professional do the work for you. Omega Systems has provided top-notch network vulnerability assessment and scanning services to countless organizations, yielding actionable results compiled in easy-to-read reports with each one. If you’re going to outsource important work, partnering with someone who works alongside your in-house teams and is a dependable provider is the best option.
Why Are Assessments and Scans Important?
While the phrase “what you don’t know won’t hurt you” is often thrown around, it’s a colloquialism without any merit. When it comes to your company’s well-being, what you don’t know stands the most significant risk of causing severe damage to your infrastructure and reputation. The longer you go without taking stock of your current security stature, including all the security gaps, vulnerabilities, and weaknesses that come with it, the more likely it is that you’ll be assaulted by either an internal or external cyber threat that knows precisely how to leverage your network’s vulnerabilities against you.
Implementing effective network vulnerability assessment and scanning practices mitigates your level of risk before hackers can take advantage of your weakened security posture. Some benefits your company can gain from regular assessments and scanning include:
- Proactive security weakness detection
- Inventory compilation and purpose identification of your network devices
- Detailed vulnerability reports for all devices
- In-depth security assessment recordings for future assessments and consultation
- Defined risk assessments
- Plans for risks vs. benefits for optimized security investments
A lesser prepared network vulnerability assessment and scanning provider may miss critical weaknesses in your network architecture. Omega Systems provides top-tier vulnerability assessments to offer your organization its best chance to improve your security posture.
Visibility, transparency, and network insights lay the foundation for a safe, reputable company. Turning a blind eye to your shortcomings means putting your data, employees, reputation, and customers at risk. While no one makes that sort of decision on purpose, it’s easy to fall into a false sense of security. What you don’t know can hurt you, so Omega Systems is there to help bolster your cybersecurity through in-depth analysis, remediation, and cybersecurity practices.
