Your Business Challenges

Our External Vulnerability Scanning services are aligned to the challenges your organisation faces. 

Unsure of the risks you face

Without clear insights into where your technical cyber security posture can be improved, it’s difficult to understand the risks your organisation faces.

Need guidance on enhancing security

So, you’ve established gaps in your technical cyber security posture that need to be addressed. But how can you create a roadmap to addressing them?

Need support with security mitigation

Once you’ve created your roadmap to mitigate your cyber security gaps, you need an experienced partner to support you in carrying out the mitigation activities.

Introducing External Vulnerability Scanning from Six Degrees

Provided by some of the most highly experienced and accredited Penetration Testers in the industry. 

Six Degrees’ External Vulnerability Scanning helps you to achieve a greater level of assurance around your Internet-facing hosts via a regular, repeatable streamlined process. Automated vulnerability scanning is backed up with manual reviews carried out by a certified Penetration Tester.

The scans are monitored while running, and the results are placed into a monthly or quarterly report for you to review the results and recommended remediation steps as well as the Penetration Tester’s own executive summary of the results.

Should results of interest be identified, optional monthly meetings with the Penetration Testing team at Six Degrees can be requested to provide further advice or context around the vulnerability scan’s findings.
