Vulnerability Scanning

Evolve Security’s vulnerability scanning services are designed to help ensure that the organization can identify and repair vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by an attacker, improving security and compliance, while reducing risk.

Discover And Mitigate Your Cybersecurity Weaknesses With Vulnerability Scanning

Regularly scanning for and fixing vulnerabilities has become a standard security control that is expected of any organization. Remediating vulnerabilities is a fundamental part of any modern security program. Over the last few years, we have been experiencing an average of 50-60 new vulnerabilities defined each and every day. Attackers use exploits that target vulnerabilities, including the ones in your environment. This includes vulnerabilities in your internal and external network presence, especially web-enabled systems where vulnerabilities can be accessed by remote attackers. Attackers regularly develop exploits for new vulnerabilities, and have been getting better at weaponizing those exploits in tool kits and exploit kits, which makes those attacks even easier.

It takes you resources – staff and budget – to find and fix vulnerabilities. The more efficient you can be about this process, the more vulnerabilities they can address with the same resources. The more vulnerabilities you can address, the more you can make your organization resilient against attack, reducing your organizational risk. Clients who regularly identify and mitigate vulnerabilities in their environment can demonstrate better control over their environment and reduce risk to organizational systems and data.

Consistent practices can not only identify existing vulnerabilities, but can also help identify root causes, enabling you to take proactive action to reduce potential vulnerabilities before they are even introduced to your environment.

Our Proven Vulnerability Scanning Solutions

Evolve Security’s vulnerability scanning follows a well-defined process designed to maximize your ability to manage your vulnerabilities.

The overall process itself is straight forward, but Evolve Security is invested in ensuring you get the most effective results possible for the engagement. We consider all of your security and compliance needs when defining the testing scenarios, and use the most appropriate tool sets for those specific needs. We also populate the Darwin Attack® portal with test results during testing to ensure you are provided timely information about vulnerabilities and actions you can take to mitigate them.


Set the rules of engagement

Define the systems, networks, and IP addresses for testing, both externally and internally. Identify any “off-limits” systems or environments, testing hours, and any other rules which can affect the vulnerability scanning. Define any compliance requirements. Define placement for internal scanners and any required external access, and other rules that could affect the test process.


Perform vulnerability scans

Use state of the art vulnerability testing tools that are appropriate for the test. Use multiple tools if that provides the best results. Review tool results and determine if any configuration changes are required for re-execution of the tests.



Perform all appropriate reporting, including briefings as necessary.


Perform mitigation assistance

Provide additional guidance to assist with mitigation, including information about patches or other mitigating controls appropriate for the client environment.

Not only does this provide you faster access to actionable results, but by using the Darwin Attack® portal you also have access to additional collaboration, clarification, and guidance directly from the Evolve Security team members assigned to your engagement.

Modernize Your Vulnerability Scanning Approach

Most companies performing vulnerability scans have commoditized their solutions. They focus on using their primary vulnerability scanner to automate their offerings to the extent possible. Most of those vendors either do automated reporting, or have a built-in lead time to provide test results through an internal reporting process. This often means that report writers are doing research on test results, and adding content not identified by testers. It also means the vendor requires lead time to draft, review, finalize, and format the report.

Evolve Security’s approach to vulnerability scans ensures making sure the testing meets your security, compliance, and business needs. This includes using multiple state of the art vulnerability scanners , and considering your scan results in the context of your needs, and updates the test process as appropriate to focus on your results.

Evolve Security is dedicated to making the entire vulnerability scan process is efficient and effective, not just the scan. During scans, our security professionals enter findings, such as identified vulnerabilities and potentially exploitable systems, directly into our Darwin Attack® portal. We update the portal in a near-real-time basis, not at the end of the test. We also have a team of security professionals who maintain and enter related cybersecurity data into Darwin Attack® in a regular, ongoing manner. This includes details like detailed remediation recommendations. Providing you access to the same portal used by our testers and security professionals helps maximize the efficiency and effectiveness of your entire testing, remediation, and management process. This means you have access to findings while the test is in process, so do not need to wait days or weeks for a final report, and can start corrective action earlier.

Our Vulnerability Scanning Services Constantly Evolve

Vulnerability scans are fundamental components of your enterprise security program.  Commodity services have a place in the market, but are not going to offer you the type of service, details, and effectiveness that you need to identify vulnerabilities in your environment. Evolve Security’s experienced security professionals constantly research the best vulnerability scanners, including service, system, or compliance-specific requirements, to help ensure that we always maintain a set of vulnerability scanners that best serve the needs of our clients.

We also continue to research vulnerability remediation and mitigating controls, as well as evolving compliance requirements. We continually update Darwin Attack® with all appropriate detail to help ensure that you have the most up to date information available. As we update Darwin Attack® with your vulnerability scan results, this maximizes your ability to fix them in a proactive manner, before a hostile attacker or cybercriminal has the chance to take advantage of them.
