Frequently Asked Questions
The Excite Cyber Vulnerability Management service provides further analysis of the outputs of scanning tools. Automated tools will get you some of the way but typically findings need to be reviewed in the context of your environment to filter out false positives, remove irrelevant findings and prioritise those that do matter according to their potential business impact. Part of this is checking to make sure the scanning tools are set up to check all in scope assets in a way that does not represent undue risk to performance of your production environments.
Excite Cyber will provide specialist expertise to manage all these issues for you.
Many vulnerabilities are hidden behind network infrastructure such as firewalls. Typically these are accessed by scanning from inside the network, which requires permissions for Excite Cyber’s team to install a scanner with the right access credentials.
In many cases we will request whitelisting of our scanning platforms to help speed the process of finding vulnerabilities without triggering your existing protection measures (this allows us to do quickly what might take hackers some time).
Finding internal vulnerabilities can be important as they provide stepping stones for someone who does manage to get inside your network.
