Traditional vulnerability scanning lets risk slip through the cracks

Attackers are constantly looking for security vulnerabilities they can use to get inside businesses like yours. Good security practitioners know this, and have long used external vulnerability scanners to find and fix weaknesses before they are discovered by an attacker.

But vulnerability scans can only be run on the assets that you or your team is aware of. That means any assets you’re not aware of may be totally unprotected.

In today’s business world, that’s a problem. Developers are always creating new websites and services, mergers bring in new assets from outside your organization, and marketers install third-party scripts across websites. These changes don’t always get reported back to the security team, which means there could be assets out there that need vulnerability scanning but aren’t receiving it.

Attackers aren’t looking for your most secure assets, they’re looking for the path of least resistance, and that’s often the assets you don’t know about and haven’t secured.

That’s why it’s time for a new approach to external vulnerability scanning.

Bridge the gap of unknown risk with Halo Security

Halo Security breaks from the traditional approach to external vulnerability scanning to help organizations eliminate the risk of the unknown. With the Halo Security attack surface management platform, security teams can quickly discover every external-facing asset associated with their organization and apply the correct scanning and monitoring tools to each one, all within a single comprehensive dashboard.
