How Vulnerability Scanners Help Work From Home
Although conventional security scanners require a server setup on-premise to support devices, Syxsense allows devices from anywhere to check in and run security scans.
What is a Vulnerability Scanner?
A vulnerability scanner scans a computer and raises an alert if it discovers any vulnerabilities that malicious hackers could use to gain access to any computer you have connected to a network.
A vulnerability scanner is not a complete security solution, but it is one small part of a good security strategy. Most do not actively prevent attacks; it is only a tool that checks your computers to find vulnerabilities that hackers could exploit. It is up to the system administrator to patch these vulnerabilities in order to create a security solution.
How Vulnerability Scanning Helps Remote And Home Users
That is where Syxsense Secure comes in. Syxsense Secure is the first product to combine IT management, patching, and security vulnerability scans in a single cloud solution. Now IT has the ability to manage and secure vulnerabilities and security weaknesses exposed by open ports, disabled firewalls, ineffective user account policies, and security compliance violations from remote workers and those on the corporate network.
The vulnerability scanner assesses items such as user security and port status. At a time when organizations are sending their fleet home, the biggest concern is end-user security awareness and whether or not they’re following protocol. Proactively validating these attack vectors allows for a safer work-from-home experience.
