Vulnerability Scanning is a vital part of ensuring up-to-date software and good standing compliance. Vulnerability scanning is an integral part of any IT environment and is regarded as an element of great importance. A vulnerability scanner can help you stop and track down cybercrime before it even starts.


What exactly is vulnerability scanning?


Our vulnerability scanners offered by Synergy Infosec is a scanner that tracks down and complies with a list of all servers and devices connected to your network and checks for vulnerabilities. This is great for identifying each device and compiling a list of all operating systems, Softwares, and the version associated with these items. Our precise scanner can even determine if there are open ports on your network and user accounts associated with systems and devices. Synergy Infosec's vulnerability scan does not just simply compile a list of servers and devices; it also checks the specific aspects of the gathered items' vulnerability. These vulnerabilities may leave you and your company open for hacks.


Synergy Infosec offers a variety of Vulnerability scanning options to choose from. The vulnerability scanners include options based on your scanning targets. These targets may consist of Network scanners, Web scanners, CMS scanners, or Recon scanners.
