SMB IT Networks: More Vulnerable than you Think

A common cyberattack strategy hackers like to use involves scanning the target’s system for vulnerabilities. Once a weakness is discovered, they leverage it to their advantage. And for cybercriminals, it’s not the size of the business that matters, it’s the ease of access.  

Although many small and medium-size businesses (SMBs) think they are too insignificant to draw the attention of hackers, breach reports prove otherwise: 66% of SMBs experienced a cyberattack in the past 12 months. Most of those attacks – 70% were executed via web applications and miscellaneous errors – internal vulnerabilities. 

Even with this information, many MSPs feel vulnerability scanning is too costly for them to absorb and they erroneously believe many of their clients won’t pay for it. However, the implications of a data breach go far beyond financial setbacks. Loss of customers and their trust are incalculable repercussions. 

To deliver full-spectrum data security, MSPs should perform vulnerability scans for all their clients on a regular basis as part of a vulnerability management service. 

VulScan is a key component to vulnerability management and can help deliver IT security that meets the needs of everyone.  It has all the features needed for both internal and external vulnerability management, and even includes an optional portable scanner that can be toted from one location to another for ad hoc scans without consuming additional licenses.  

Best of all, VulScan is priced so that cost is no longer a barrier to scanning as many assets as needed, as frequently as you want.
