CLOSING THE DOORS TO HACKERS
The complexities surrounding today’s computers and networks require regular “vulnerability” scanning and remediation to detect and defend against the evolving threats from hackers who use holes in these systems to create a potentially devastating effect on your business. Constant changes to devices, configurations, applications and even new patches can leave you susceptible to an attack, even if you are keeping your security controls up to date.
EXPLOITED VULNERABILITIES ARE STILL THE ROOT CAUSE OF MOST BREACHES
IS THE THREAT REAL? YOU DECIDE…
A new security vulnerability is identified every 90 minutes
There are an average of 7 vulnerabilities per asset across a typical IT environment
8000 new vulnerabilities are identified each year, many of these are categorised as critical
It takes an average of 103 days until known security vulnerabilities are remediated
It takes an average of just 15 days for a new vulnerability to be exploited
From the above, and daily news articles, you will see the threat is real and must be taken seriously if you want a solid Information Security strategy to protect your business.

What is the ATLAS: Vulnerability Assessment?
Vulnerability Assessment Scanning is the technical inspection of a computer or network to identify security holes (“vulnerabilities”) that an attacker can exploit to cause major disruption to your business or steal sensitive information.
A vulnerability scan detects and classifies these weaknesses allowing early remediation.
Why must you care about ATLAS?
You can’t fix what you don’t know about so if your computers and networks have “vulnerabilities” you are making the job of a malicious hacker much easier who may use these weaknesses to steal sensitive information or cause major disruption to your business.
Many of these security holes are an open door for hackers but can be easily mitigated with help from our detailed automated reports and comprehensive, easy to follow, remediation documentation.
How does ATLAS work?
Our Vulnerability Assessment Scans are simple to operate and fully automated so you won’t need any technical knowledge to start the process. All detected weaknesses are available to view on our highly secure user-friendly portal along with easy-to-follow instructions on how to remediate any issues found.
If you use a third-party IT company, this information can simply be handed to them for any remediation work to be completed.
Why is ATLAS different to the anti-malware we have installed?
Installing anti-virus/malware software is a critical part of your overall Information Security strategy but you can no longer rely solely on this for protection because many of today’s sophisticated attacks can circumvent these applications.
You must routinely perform vulnerability scans of all connected devices and remediate where necessary to give you the best chance of mitigating an almost inevitable attack.
Why do I need to perform regular scans?
Vulnerabilities are constantly being discovered in old and new systems (even after new patches have been applied from vendors) so it is imperative you remain just as continuously vigilant as the hackers remain continuously determined to cause disruption to your business.
ATLAS: is routinely updating and regularly scanning for the latest threats without requiring in-house research or additional training. This allows you to allocate your time and resources to other responsibilities and do more with a smaller team.
