Vulnerability Detection for Storage & Backups

Authenticated Vulnerability Scanning for Storage and Backup Systems

All leading industry standards emphasize the importance of using various techniques and tools for vulnerability scanning to achieve sufficient coverage and depth. For example, CIS Control (v8) 7.5 states that organizations must perform both authenticated and unauthenticated vulnerability scans of internal enterprise assets on a quarterly – or more frequent – basis.  Furthermore, they stress the importance of having a solution that can update its vulnerability database according to the latest publications.
