What are Cyber Vulnerability Alerts?
When nearly 20 new cybersecurity vulnerabilities are identified on average every day, it is imperative to stay vigilant in detecting and addressing security holes or misconfigurations in your systems. Each new vulnerability discovered increases your level of risk, as attackers can often figure out how to exploit these vulnerabilities within days (sometimes hours) of their disclosure. The vulnerabilities / alerts on our reports tell you your system vulnerabilities each month and instructions for fixing them.
Our plan makes this easy for you! When you enroll, you pick your first scan date and time, and your scans will run automatically, giving you monthly updates on the threats to your business.
What do the Cyber Vulnerability Alerts include?
As an organization that has sensitive information to safeguard, it’s critical to understand how you might be targeted. By enrolling in Cyber Attack Protection Plan, you receive a risk profile of your organization and monthly security scans of your Internet-facing devices, which look for weaknesses that an attacker might use to access your systems. Your reports include corrective recommendations that are risk-ranked based on priority and will provide you with the information you need to close security gaps and defend against attacks and data breaches.
Why should I use the Cyber Vulnerability Scan service?
Failure to identify and address system vulnerabilities can result in cyber-attacks, data breaches, possibly fines and expose your organization to liability claims. You may also lose the confidence of existing and future customers.
How do I set up my monthly Cyber Vulnerability Scans?
After you enroll, you will receive an email with your enrollment materials and a link to enter your scan information. You can also go to the Cyber Scan Set Up tab at the bottom of our website and securely enter your public IP addresses and URLs. After that, we will send you an email so you can set up your login information to view your scan results.
How long does it take to set up the Cyber Vulnerability Scan?
Once we receive your public IP addresses and URLs, we will need up to two business days to make sure we have the correct information and set up your first scan.
How often will the Cyber Vulnerability Scan run?
Monthly. However, if you would like to rescan after remediating vulnerabilities, you may rescan throughout the month to help ensure the identified vulnerabilities have been remediated. Just reach out to us and we’ll trigger the scan.
Where do I go to view my Cyber Vulnerability Scan results?
Once you have provided us with your public facing IP addresses and URLs we will provide you with an encrypted file to view your results each month via email.
How many public IP addresses and URLs are included in the vulnerability scanning?
There is no limit.
What if I have more than six public IP addresses or URLs and what is the cost?
There is no additional cost.
How do I find my IP address(es) and/or URL(s)?
Getting your proper IP address is very important to perform your vulnerability scans correctly. You must provide your public IP address(es) and company URL(s) for our vulnerability scanners to find your computers on the internet.
If you have any technical staff (such as an IT department, IT consulting firm, “tech guy,” etc.), they will likely have this information on hand.
If you do not have any technical staff, there are a few different ways to determine your IP address(es) and/or hostname(s):
Whether you accept payment cards on a website or not, you’ll want to register the URL of your website.
Your public IP address will be assigned to you by your Internet Service Provider (ISP).
You can go to https://whatismyipaddress.com and your public IP address will appear.
