      What Is Vulnerability Scanning?

      Vulnerability scanning consists of examining networks, applications, and systems to identify security weaknesses and potential entry points for malicious material.

      Akita’s consultants use software to analyse potential weaknesses in software, configurations and network protocols and identify potential vulnerabilities that could be compromised.

      Types Of Vulnerabilities Detected:

      Vulnerability scanning can detect a wide range of vulnerabilities, including but not limited to:

      • Software flaws and vulnerabilities
      • Missing patches and updates
      • Misconfigurations in network devices and systems
      • Weak or default passwords
      • Insecure and open network protocols

      In identifying vulnerabilities, we’ll prioritise remediation tasks based on risk severity and potential impact.

      This proactive approach means organsations can strengthen security posture, reduce the likelihood of successful cyber attacks, and minimise the potential damage in the event of a security breach.

      Why Vulnerability Scanning Is Essential For Your Business

      Vulnerability scanning offers an overview of the state of your IT security as well as how well you might fair if you were subject to an attack. This allows you to negate threats before they happen. Therefore by performing scans, organisations save money by preventing IT system damage, business disruption, or potential fines for data loss or theft.

      Scanning can contribute towards a variety of organisational security standards, and is advised as part of compliance with ISO 27001. It is also required by some industry and regulatory bodies.

      Proof of regular scanning is also a sign that an organisation is actively engaged with its IT security. This attention to detail is something that new customers may look for in the general character of an organisation to ensure that its data will remain safe when working with them.

      Professional Vulnerability Scanning As A Service

      Akita’s Vulnerability Scanning Services

      Based on requirements, Akita can approach vulnerability scanning either from an internal (within your systems) or external (from outside of your systems using just an IP address) perspective. Our  in-depth approach to capture and report on potential threats in your systems and processes:


      We’ll establish whether you require internal and/or external scanning. We’ll then determine which systems, applications or devices you’d like testing. Before scanning, we’ll consider and adjust the approach for particular weaknesses depending on the systems/devices, the nature of your operations, and the types of data you hold.

      Scanning Process

      Once the scope is established, our cyber security consultants complete testing using advanced scanning software. This process will typically reveal a large number of potential and actual vulnerabilities.

      Reporting & Debriefing

      Once the scan is complete, we produce a report on vulnerabilities, outlining which are high risk and should be treated as priorities. We also identify the solutions or steps required to neutralise those threats and can assist with any technology improvements or fixes should you wish.


      Once remediations are implemented, we can offer to retest and ensure that vulnerabilities are negated.

      FAQs About Vulnerability Scanning Services

      How long does a vulnerability scanning process typically take?

      The duration of a vulnerability scan can vary depending on factors such as the size and complexity of your organisation's infrastructure, the number of systems being scanned, and the depth of the scan.

      Yes, many industries and regulatory bodies have requirements or guidelines that mandate or recommend regular vulnerability scanning as part of an organisation's cybersecurity practices. For example, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) requires quarterly vulnerability scanning for organisations that handle payment card data.
