Vulnerability Scanning & Assessment

Protect sensitive information systems with regular check ups.

Many organizations are required by regulatory bodies, including the Payment Card Industry (PCI), 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. Fortunately, vulnerability scans from Coalfire provide a quick, easy, and inexpensive check to confirm your systems are protected.

External and Internal 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. The assessment concludes with a detailed report that outlines validated vulnerabilities, risk ratings, and remediation recommendations and a stakeholder debriefing.

Quarterly external PCI scans

This service provides monthly scans to meet the PCI Data Security Standard (PCI DSS)’s quarterly network scan requirements and can help ensure continued compliance. Included with this service are:

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