Inadequate Security Recent research of MarketCap shows that one out of every three companies is not aware of a cyber attack, or they find out months after the attack has taken place. Almost 40 percent of the organizations, that have experienced an attack, indicate that they have lost data and information. In 28 percent this concerns mission critical information. With a regular vulnerability scan, these organizations would have been aware of any security risks and take action to prevent these type of attacks.
Extensive reports In order to keep the network safe on a continuous basis, Beyond Security's flagship Automated Scanning appliance was developed for ease of use and simplicity. Once security mapping and scanning is complete a detailed vulnerability report is generated specifying the security vulnerabilities with practical and easy-to-apply fixes for those vulnerabilities. ion-ip offers a single scan of your network or you can get a subscription for regular scanning. For customers who want to monitor their network continuously, ion-ip can deliver an fully managed automated scanning solution.
