Vulnerability
Assessment

Find your vulnerabilities before the hackers do. The first step to determine if a weakness can be exploited is to perform a vulnerability assessment. Some organizations may not need a full-on penetration test right away but would like to understand what type of weakness or vulnerability exists within their system, server or application.

​BitSpartan Security helps organizations manage and better understand their information system vulnerabilities by performing a human-run vulnerability assessment on a target system or application and reporting on those vulnerabilities. The report details the severity level of the vulnerabilities and ranks them appropriately. It also details possible exploit methods and recommendations for remediating the vulnerability.

Management may use this data to obtain a holistic view of their vulnerabilities and to prioritize remediation efforts.

2

Stakeholders may require it as part of contract or new requirement

6

Meet legal and regulatory requirements

3

Demonstrate due diligence to stakeholders

7

Prevent data breach and security incidents

4

Prioritize on what vulnerabilities to fix first

Go beyond scanning. Human-run vulnerability assessments performed by Certified Ethical Hackers.

Our Process

If you don't know what's vulnerable, you won't know what to fix. Our vulnerability assessment goes beyond simple automated scanning and report generation. We provide you with the information you need to prioritize your remediation efforts based on professional analysis. Our vulnerability assessment is a human-run assessment where a certified ethical hacker manages the engagement from start to finish. Every step in the process we show below requires an expert to manually review, inspect, analyze, determine the possibility of exploitation, and make sense of the vulnerabilities and how they can impact your information system and your business. Here is our process:

Stay Clean

New vulnerabilities are discovered every day. Hygienic-wise, we recommend monthly scanning of the target in scope and a full comprehensive assessment annually.
