Vulnerability Management as a Service (VMaaS)

ConnectDS provide both internal vulnerability scanning and external vulnerability monitoring as a service to UK businesses of all sizes.

Why Vulnerability Management as a Service?

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?

Internal Vulnerability Scanning

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

Internal vulnerability monitoring is 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

The external vulnerability managed service 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.

Service includes all licensing and implementation.

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

This service includes alerting, reporting and consultation which includes a rescan for validation of remediated vulnerabilities.

Please note: frequency of assessments may be adjusted to suit your requirements and can be carried out weekly, monthly, or quarterly (pricing will be adjusted accordingly).

The key benefits of this are:

  • Fast identification and classification on security vulnerabilities/weaknesses
