Vulnerability scanning to identify security holes in your networks and systems.

Automated scanning

Automatically discovers and scans assets for vulnerabilities on your behalf.

Advanced logic and prioritization

AI, machine learning, and contextual prioritization provide expansive and continuous coverage.

Detailed reporting and recommendations

Automated reporting presents vulnerabilities found and remediation recommendations.

External and internal scanning

Scan external internet-facing resources (e.g., firewalls, servers, routers, and web applications) and/or internal network assets (e.g., workstations, servers, switches, and IoT devices).

How does it work?

Our cybersecurity experts help determine scan type and asset coverage. Then, simply enroll and activate IPs, and you will be notified when new results are found. Additionally, ongoing reports will be automatically delivered through the Defendify platform (ad hoc reporting is also available). 

Vulnerability testing is recommended as an always-on solution with a minimum cadence of monthly reporting.

Welcome to Defendify! The all-in-one cyber security platform. The defender 5 vulnerability scanner is automated and produces reports in Defendify monthly. With Defendify you can provide not only external network scans but also internal
network vulnerability scanning. You can utilize the vulnerability scanner to scan your entire network including devices, applications, printers, and even IoT devices such as security, cameras or displays. This rating system helps you to identify which vulnerabilities to consider correcting first. The report may include out-of-date software, vulnerabilities based on known CVEs, default passwords incorrectly left on devices and more. Along with identifying the vulnerabilities, the report also includes valuable source data and often remediation recommendations to assist you in taking the next steps.

This is just one of the modules under our Layered Security approach that work together to give you holistic protection.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some of your questions might have already been answered. Read them here.

Vulnerability scanning is an automated process of identifying publicly known vulnerabilities, or Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs), in a company’s network, devices, servers, operating systems, web applications, and more.

Scan results may identify out-of-date software or hardware and even default passwords left on IoT devices (security cameras, printers, or even coffee machines).

This is one component of a vulnerability management program.

External vulnerability scans are run from outside the network against any public-facing assets and specifically work to uncover weaknesses in firewalls, servers, or web applications that could be exploited.

Internal vulnerability scans are performed from a location that has access to the internal network and can identify vulnerabilities such as missed patches, misconfigurations or other security issues.

We can identify and scan all internal assets, including workstations, servers, operating systems, applications and IoT devices.

Vulnerability scanning is an automated process performed by a technology solution to identify any known vulnerabilities on all discovered assets but does not typically include the exploitation of identified flaws.

Penetration testing is a more involved process conducted by a security professional that includes manual probing followed by exploitation attempts to simulate what a real attacker would do and what the effect could be.

We broke this topic down further in this article.

Our scanner is agentless.

For more technical questions about deployment, schedule a time to talk to us.

Our report provides a numbered list of uncovered vulnerabilities, ranked by remediation category (critical, medium, warning or info).

This meaningful prioritization will highlight the vulnerabilities that present the greatest risk and give you a clear place to start focusing your remediation efforts.

Where applicable, we provide a description of the vulnerability along with remediation recommendations and other resources.

We recommend ongoing vulnerability scanning as a regular practice within your security program.

In addition, you can request an ad-hoc scan if a new vulnerability is published, or if you add or make any changes to your applications, devices or infrastructure.

What Does a Zero-day Vulnerability Mean and How to Stay Protected? 

Many cyberattacks originate from zero-day vulnerabilities, as they can become a race between threat actors attempting to exploit the flaw and manufacturers releasing a patch or users applying mitigating techniques.
