A security vulnerability assessment is the process of defining, identifying, classifying and prioritising vulnerabilities in computer systems, applications and network infrastructures.
This type of security assessment will provide organisations with the necessary knowledge, awareness and risk context to understand the threats to the business and how to mitigate the risks appropriately.
Any company that wants to understand their risk profile, both internally and externally will benefit from a vulnerability assessment. Many common attacks can be resolved through basic system security configuration, undertaking a vulnerability assessment will provide actionable information to correct any identified issues.
Cyber attacks often not only results in the loss of your network, down time and disruption, but also significant reputational damage and data protection fines. That’s why understanding where your system vulnerabilities lie is so crucial.

Robust security goes beyond firewalls and passwords – when multiple users have access to valuable data, ensuring the right people have access to specific areas of your network is critical. As such, gaining complete visibility over your network with a vulnerability assessment is a necessity.
Understandably, not all organisations have the resource to fund a full internal cyber team, so for those looking to manage their systems effectively, without the large expense, undertaking a vulnerability assessment is a great low cost solution.
At Stripe OLT, we provide two types of assessment. The first is a Vulnerability Management Service, this support contract involves recurring monthly scans, including patching and system maintenance. This service is available for organisations who are looking to take control of system vulnerabilities and manage risk, manage user device security and those who hold data accessed by multiple users but do not have the inhouse expertise to manage it
The second service is a One-Off Vulnerability Scan – This is suited to organisations that need to check their devices are being managed correctly. This could be those looking into a recurring security issue or perhaps a business that needs to adapt their polocies to suit a change in working processes.
