With patches, threats and changes to your network taking place on a daily basis it is vital to understand if you are managing risk effectively. Vulnerability scanning is often a useful method to establish a vulnerability baseline across the network which is then tested on a regular basis to understand variance.
Vulnerability Scanning is also required for a number of key regulatory compliance standards in both the public and private sector making it an even more crucial element of an organisation’s security operations.

•Vulnerability scanning drivers
•Pros and cons for different vulnerability scanning solutions
