Vulnerability assessments, also known as vulnerability testing or vulnerability scanning, are assessments that your managed service provider’s (MSP) security team performs on your network. These assessments show where your network’s vulnerabilities lie. When your network receives a vulnerability test or scan, the scan examines firewalls, applications, servers, and routers, among other components. These scans require automated tools and examine business-wide security measures. Once your MSP’s security professionals perform a vulnerability scan, you can work with them to reduce or eliminate vulnerabilities throughout your network.
