Vulnerability Scanning is an automated process that identified known security vulnerabilities and weaknesses in your internal and external digital assets. Vulnerability scanning can also identify errors and weaknesses in system and service configurations too.
Vulnerability scanning is required for a number of regulatory standards, from the UK Governments Cyber Essentials scheme to more indepth standards such as PCI-DSS and ISO27001.
Hedgehog is a CREST approved provider of vulnerability scanning services.
Vulnerability scanning is the much quicker and cheaper little sibling of Penetration Testing. Regular vulnerability scanning with Hedgehog has the following benefits to your organisation:
This is our base level of vulnerability scanning which is available on a one off or as a regular service. With the standard vulnerability scanning service we use commercial scanning engines from three vendors. Our service will test for more than 140,000 vulnerabilities and will aggrigate those results into a PDF report for you.
Our standard vulnerability scanning services costs £8 per asset and can be purchased online here.
The Advanced Vulnerability Scanning service builds on the standard scanning service above. We then take those results and they are manually reviewed by one our qualified and experienced Penetration Test team members. We will verify that the vulnerabilities that are discovered are infact present, meaning you will have less than 1% flase positives in your report.
Our Advanced Vulnerability Scanning service costs £18 per asset and can be purchased online here.
Our Lightweight Pentest service builds yet further on top of the Advanced Vulnerability Scanning service. With the Lighweight Pentest service, one of our pentest team members will review the output from the scan engines and manually verify the vulnerabilities.
Once the vulnerabilities are verified, the pentest team member will attempt to exploit the vulnerabilities. The results from the Lightweight Pentest are then manually written up into our test report and delivered to you in PDF form with an excel workbook of your vulnerabilities in a risk led remediation order.
Our Lightweight Pentest service costs £345 per asset and can be purchased online here.
