What is a Vulnerability Assessment?
Vulnerability assessments give a company an overview of what issues they currently have in an application and what id hosts have been configured correctly. Vulnerability assessments are a cornerstone in compliance to make sure that a company is not carrying unnecessary risk from their IT systems. Vulnerability assessments tell an IT team what prioritised potential risks the company has and how to mitigate or fix these issues.
Vulnerability Assessment VS Penetration Testing
Vulnerability assessments and penetration tests share some overlap however there are key differences between the two. Although both vulnerability assessments and penetration tests will reveal vulnerabilities in a network vulnerability assessments will not qualify the results where as a penetration test will test the vulnerability and report on the exploitability.
During a vulnerability assessment, the potentially sensitive information gained from testing the network will not then be used to attempt to gain further access to the network. During a penetration test, this information will be used to gain further access to give a better idea on how an attacker would navigate through a network.
