Why should you identify potential cyber security threats and vulnerabilities in your network?

Identifying cyber threats and vulnerabilities is crucial to safeguarding your network. According to the DCMS Cyber security breaches survey 2023, nearly a third (32%) of businesses and a quarter (24%) of charities reported experience of some kind of cyber security breach or cyber attack in the last 12 months.

Proactive threat identification can reduce this risk by preventing costly breaches, protecting sensitive data, and preserving business continuity and reputation. Regular assessments also ensure compliance with regulations.

Wanstor’s threat and vulnerability assessments or managed service identifies where your network, systems and hardware are most exposed by identifying, tracking, and managing vulnerabilities and risks within your systems.

Common vulnerabilities you may encounter:

How can Wanstor help manage Threat and Vulnerability for your organisation?

One way to ensure that your network is protected, to stay aware of any potential threats, and mitigate them is through vulnerability scanning. Wanstor offers you a choice of four tiers.

External threat and vulnerability scan

Offered free. Gives a snapshot overview of risks to external facing IP addresses at the time of the scan.

Threat and vulnerability scan

An external IP and Internal IP (authenticated network based) scan on devices connected to the network at the time of the scan and one off or on a quarterly basis.

Threat and vulnerability managed trial

An external IP and internal IP (agent-based) scan on devices connected to the internet, performed for 30 days.

Threat and vulnerability managed service

Comprehensive monthly recurring external IP and internal IP (agent based and authenticated) on scans on devices connected both to the network or the internet, providing continuous threat protection.

Our Power BI dashboard gives you a comprehensive overview of vulnerabilities found, problem hosts and devices, the ability to filter vulnerabilities based on the Cyber Essentials standard and more – giving you complete visibility over your threat landscape. This is a critical reporting tool to assess threats over a set period and keep stakeholders informed.

A dashboard to visualise findings from the threat and vulnerability managed service that includes number of vulnerabilities and their priority levels, devices with most number of vulnerabilities, most common vulnerabilities and a graph that shows how the vulnerabilities gradually decrease over time, using Wanstor’s threat and vulnerability managed service
