Vulnerability assessment, sometimes referred to as a vulnerability scan is an activity which helps to detect, identify, categorize, and manage vulnerabilities and weaknesses in IT systems. These include lacking patches, unsecure configurations, end of life software or hardware detection and other possible missing security related updates. To protect data, you must gain visibility where your systems are most vulnerable.
