Vulnerabilities refer to pathways or system gateways that cyber criminals can use to gain access into network. When criminals realize the presence of such vulnerabilities in network, they can exploit them and cause wanton damage to infrastructure, without mentioning the loss of crucial business data as well as network downtime.
Regulatory requirements and compliance rules stipulate that organizations need to conduct vulnerability assessment at least annually as part of ensuring that their systems cannot be easily compromised. But rather than waiting to conduct the assessment once every year, it is prudent to do so regularly since there are a number of factors that can cause vulnerabilities in network. For instance, changes to network’s configuration or software updates on the infrastructure can easily create weak points that criminals can use to gain access to network if you wait for the annual vulnerability assessment.
With regular vulnerability assessment therefore, organizations tremendously reduces the chances of new vulnerabilities going unnoticed. In case there are any, it will take just a short time before they are discovered and eliminated from the network. With our vulnerability assessment services, we will work out an acceptable schedule with your customers so that we can have clear timelines to check out their system for vulnerabilities. In most cases, quarterly assessments are preferred on the network since this will make it easy to spot any changes in the system.
