Vulnerability Scanning & Assessment

Protect sensitive information systems with regular check ups.

Every business is sure to lock their office doors at night. But many organizations don’t take the same care to ensure the doors to their network are secured against hackers. In today’s marketplace, protecting sensitive data needs to be given the same priority as physical security.

With the increase in cyber threats, several regulatory requirements in financial services, the Payment Card Industry (PCI), and the government sector require regulated entities to perform periodic external and internal vulnerability assessments. In fact, in the event of a data breach, the lack of effective scanning and reporting can lead to a determination of negligence. Vulnerability scanning provides a quick, easy, and inexpensive check to confirm your systems are protected.

Coalfire Vulnerability Scanning & Assessment Services

Coalfire offers an automated and streamlined program that provides three levels of vulnerability scanning. Each includes an easy-to-use interface to request service and automated reporting to control costs.

External and Internal Network Vulnerability Assessments

These services go beyond basic automated scanning to provide manual validation and analysis of vulnerabilities identified by scanning. The depth of these services helps eliminate inaccurate reports that can occur with automated scanning, and they facilitate a more precise understanding of the real security posture of your systems.

At the conclusion of your assessment, you’ll receive:

  • A detailed report outlining validated vulnerabilities, including risk ratings, and recommendations for remediation.
  • A debriefing with stakeholders to discuss findings and remediation.

Quarterly External PCI Scans

This service provides monthly scans to meet the quarterly network scan requirements of the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) and can help ensure continued compliance.

At the conclusion of your assessment, you’ll receive:

  • Secure project portal deployment and management to support confidential project communications.
  • A monthly report that meets the PCI DSS that may be passed on to your acquirer.
  • A monthly report of vulnerabilities, recommendations for remediation, and raw data for each quarterly scan.
