During Vulnerability Assessment (also called Vulnerability Scanning), the Secmentis team scans and assesses vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure. However, unlike in a penetration test, Secmentis will not proceed to actually exploit and access targeted assets, yet we will eliminate any false-positives found in our vulnerability scans.
The goal of Vulnerability Assessment is to quickly identify potential vulnerabilities in your IT infrastructure in order to understand your current security posture, without simulating a real hacker attack.
Secmentis Vulnerability Assessment services are available internationally and can be provided remotely. We provide Vulnerability Assessment worldwide in the Americas, Asia & Pacific, Europe, and Middle East & Africa regions.
Our Vulnerability Assessment is conducted from a blackbox perspective as a malicious outsider. We methodically follow these steps:
Note: Our vulnerability scanning begins only after you have given us explicit and signed authorization.
Secmentis will provide you with a report which includes the following deliverables at the end of our testing:
Our vulnerability scans will quickly give you the overall picture of your security posture. All vulnerabilities identified in our vulnerability scans are further manually verified by Secmentis.

The key differences between Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing clearly explained.
Vulnerability scanners/assessment tools only identify vulnerabilities they can check about. However, a human hacker can be far more creative when looking to attack.
Vulnerability scanners perform automatic checking based on algorithms, but are mostly "brainless" and do not present the real business risks.
Vulnerability scans only tell you about the vulnerabilities they know about. They cannot combine different vulnerabilities to reach a goal as a human hacker could do.
A penetration test uses many different tools to test and attack targets, whereas a vulnerability scan is limited in its range of assessments it performs.
You may get a report out of vulnerability scanner, but you are still unaware of the actual business risks ‐ just how far could a hacker go?
False-positives (i.e. vulnerabilities that may not exist or are not real) may be present in the findings of a vulnerability scanner.
