Vulnerability Scanning

Vulnerability scanning is usually preferred as a first step in discovering flaws in the security of systems. The reason is, it's generally faster and less thorough than penetration testing, it's a structured and straight forward process, it can be executed with little knowledge by using more or less, well-known tools and it produces meaningful security results without being invasive or disrupting.

There is nothing bad with this! But usually, you windup with exhaustive lists of informational, warning and critical "vulnerabilities", alerts, daunting qualitative metrics and maybe, lack of proper knowledge on how to effectively mitigate the discovered flaws.

SpearIT makes a vulnerability scan procedure work as a security insights horizon rather than an ocean of obstacles.
