A vulnerability assessment is the process of identifying, quantifying and prioritising the vulnerabilities in computer systems, applications and network infrastructures and providing an organisation, doing the assessment, with the necessary knowledge, awareness and risk background to understand the threats to its environment in order to react appropriately.
Bridewell Consulting’s accredited and certified vulnerability assessments provides organisations with a cost-effective solution for continued assurance.
A fully automated Vulnerability Assessment Scanning can cover large suites of known vulnerabilities and performing a penetration test is a technical deep dive into every perceivable flaw of a system or application. However, a penetration test will only ever be a point in time assessment. A vulnerability assessment will demonstrate your ongoing commitment to ensure your infrastructure or product is continually assessed and subsequently secured.
