Socura has launched a new Managed Vulnerability Scanning (MVS) service. The MVS service from Socura is developed to assist clients in identifying potential vulnerabilities and misconfigurations across all on- and off-premises systems, including their local network, cloud applications, web applications, and mobile devices.

The service enables users to prioritize their remediation efforts while adhering to cyber security regulations and resolving security issues. The MVS service provides continuous vulnerability identification and mitigation and can run on-demand or on a schedule. It will assist Socura’s SOC team in limiting the success of attempted cyber-attacks.

Andrew Kays, CEO of Socura, commented, “Our MVS service empowers our customers to be more focused when protecting their IT assets, allowing them to focus their efforts in areas that will make the greatest difference. The data from our MVS tools will also feed into the SOC to help our team understand potential customer weaknesses, how to mitigate them, and ultimately ensure they are well protected. This is more important than ever, with vulnerabilities evolving as systems are updated, and new attack techniques becoming available”.

The MVS’s insights will improve Socura’s SOC capabilities by giving its analysts more context, which they can use to protect customer environments and set the order of importance for attack surface reduction initiatives. The advanced MVS service will provide customers with a full breakdown and prioritization of vulnerabilities, as well as an analysis of their potential impact and actionable insights for internal teams’ defensive efforts.

MVS is available for customers with two levels of service. Under the standard service, Socura will deploy the vulnerability scanning platform for clients, including setup, management, onboarding, scanning, and regular reporting. The advanced MVS service also includes an assessment of MVS scan results by Socura’s SOC team.

Socura’s MVS service includes features such as continuous vulnerability scanning and management, new asset discovery across the IT estate, monthly vulnerability reports, identification, and evaluation of vulnerabilities, including any threats that may exploit them, and actionable insights from Socura’s expert SOC analyst team.
