Free external vulnerability scanning from Infuse: Identifying your security weaknesses before hackers do.

Contact us

In September 2020, the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) published an alert informing organisations that opportunistic hackers were compromising Windows servers by targeting exposed security flaws gaining access and control to internal systems. To spot your security weaknesses before hackers do, Infuse offer free external vulnerability scanning that can help detect, manage and prevent breaches. That’s right, for free. Read on to find out more.

External vulnerability scanning, made simple.  

External vulnerability scanning, sometimes known as “perimeter scanning” allows you to discover security holes and neutralise threats to your exposed systems. It’s one piece of a much larger cyber-security puzzle, but a great place to start to secure your IT infrastructure.  

As cyber-criminals and digital threats evolve, businesses are becoming more susceptible to attacks. Hackers are always on the lookout for security holes to exploit, these attacks not only cause havoc but have cost UK businesses a whopping £34 billion in the last year alone. External vulnerability scanning stays one step ahead by spotting your security flaws before cyber-criminals do.  

Prevention is always better than cure 

The trouble with cyber-attacks is most businesses think ‘it could never happen to us’. What if we told you 96% of UK businesses suffered a damaging cyber-attack in the last year? (CBR, 2020) To avoid adding to this sobering statistic, businesses should be scanning their networks for vulnerabilities frequently. That’s where Infuse come in. 

Infuse use the latest technology to perform an external vulnerability scan on your organisation’s external network. By testing and targeting your exposed systems, we can advise on all cyber-security best practices to keep you out of harm’s way and highlight any areas that need immediate attention. Better yet, we can do this for free. It’s a no-brainer if you ask us!   

Not only do Infuse offer external vulnerability scanning, but we also provide free dark web scanning on your company domains to ensure your personal information (including usernames, passwords and financial details) remains personal and isn’t being sold on the dark web!
