ConnectDS provide both internal vulnerability scanning and external vulnerability monitoring and management as a service to UK businesses of all sizes from our Surrey and London office locations.

Why Vulnerability Management as a Service? 

ConnectDS VMaaS is an ongoing, monthly or quarterly vulnerability assessment of your organisation’s external and/or internal assets.

Standard vulnerability scans and penetration tests are ‘Point in Time’ assessments, this means that your network could be scanned today and have no vulnerabilities, but tomorrow, a vulnerability could be disclosed for one of your services, leaving your company exposed to unwanted threats until your next yearly scan. Our VMaaS service greatly reduces the time vulnerabilities can lie dormant in your environment thus reducing the chances of a successful cyber attack being carried out on your business.

How Are Vulnerability Scans Performed?

At ConnectDS, our ongoing vulnerability assessment tools and management of internal and external devices uses specialist software together with human interaction from our experienced security professionals. This allows us to deliver actionable vulnerability analysis insight for your organisational cyber risk management program. 

ConnectDS provide a wide coverage for vulnerability assurance on our ongoing vulnerability assessments, these can be consolidated into the agreed VMaaS scope or delivered individually in 3 categories, these are:

  • Internal Network Vulnerability Monitoring – performed using software agents that are installed on the endpoints and can extend to remote device or sites using host scanners installed on specific devices
  • External Network Assessment Monitoring – assesses the security of external networks, systems, applications and infrastructure devices to identify weaknesses that can be leveraged by attackers to gain unauthorised access to your systems this performed using industry leading cloud-based scanners pointed at your publicly facing IPs.
  • Web Application Assessment

This service includes alerting, reporting and consultation which includes a re-scan for validation of remediated vulnerabilities. Frequency of assessments may be adjusted to suit your requirements and can be carried out  monthly or quarterly (pricing will be adjusted accordingly).
