Get Value By Significantly Reducing Risk And Liability
If you are responsible for your organization’s IT security, you need to perform regular vulnerability scans to reduce the risk of a successful cyberattack your network.
Most IT professionals understand this, but many are prevented from doing so because of resource constraints. They either face budgetary limitations imposed by finance, or they simply lack the staff to perform all the work that comes along with the scanning process.
VulScan solves these problems. It’s priced so you can deploy as many scanners as you need to cover your entire network, with no limit to the number of assets located at any given site. And the built-in automation and false-positive management tools reduces the labor enough to perform regularly scheduled basic vulnerability scans with existing staff.
It’s a tremendous competitive value-added differentiator…and you can use the reports and alerts generated as the ammo you need to justify the incremental budget spend.
In fact, if you already perform regular vulnerability scanning with another product, chances are good that a switch to VulScan will save you 30% or more in software and appliance licensing fees!

THE INTERNAL IT PRO SURVEY RESULTS
In doing our market research to develop VulScan, we surveyed hundreds IT Pros who work inside of corporate IT departments to learn how many actually perform vulnerability scans, how frequently they do it. IT pros we talked to came from a wide range of environments, from small organizations less than 50 endpoints to huge corporate behemoths with more than 10,000.

A Diverse Mix Of Survey Respondents
We had hundreds of survey responses from IT Pros who are responsible for the computers and networks within their organization’s IT departments. Of those, 47% describe themselves as Multi-functional IT professionals, 13.5% identified themselves as specialized internal IT professional (i.e. web-dev, security, network admin, etc.), and the rest were in IT Management. And, as you can see from the chart below, they come from a wide range of different sized organizations.
Self-Serve, Out-Source, And Not At All
According to our survey, the response pool was almost equally split among three vulnerability scanning scenarios. A total of 31% say they do their own vulnerability scanning, while another 35% outsource the vulnerability scanning to MSPs. But another 33% say they don’t do any regular vulnerability scanning . . . and surprisingly, this latter group is comprised of an equal mix of larger and smaller organizations.
A Mix Of Scan Frequencies Match IT Security Needs
Not surprisingly, similar to the results from the MSP survey, there is a wide range of scan frequency of those IT Pros who do vulnerability scans. About 40% of our respondents said they scan at least monthly . . . with 1/4 of that total performing weekly scans and another 1/4 of them performing daily scans. On the opposite end of the spectrum, another 30% only scan once per year or on an ad hoc basis. The single largest frequency band from the survey is Quarterly, representing about 1 in 5 respondents.
High Cost of Scanning Puts Companies At Higher Risk
IT Pros at companies of every size face the very same issues as the MSPs we surveyed: They know the importance of vulnerability management, but the high cost is limiting them. First we asked the IT Pros who already do vulnerability scans. About 60% of those respondents say they would run scans more frequently and/or scan more assets if scanning were more affordable . . .
Misconceptions Among Some IT Pros
We then polled the one-third of IT Pros who don’t do regular vulnerability scans, why they don’t scan the computers on their own networks. Absurdly, more than 21% of these respondents said their companies don’t need it. But, just as with the MSPs, 60% of these respondents attribute the high cost (saying either it’s too expensive, or their company won’t pay for it). Meanwhile, nearly 1/3 said that vulnerability scanning is too complicated, while 13% feel the results are not reliable.
Meet Your Organization’s Needs with VulScan
If you are among the majority of IT Pros who don’t perform enough vulnerability scans — or, perhaps, who don’t perform vulnerability scans at all — VulScan is your solution. The subscription price is so low you can immediately add internal and external vulnerability scanning to every asset on every network you manage for one low fixed fee.
