Don’t Let Anyone Come Between You & Your Network


Vulnerability Scanning Finds the Gaps so You Can Fill Them

It’s do or die out there. Cybersecurity is never the same game. Cybercriminals want what you have—information—and they won’t stop until they get it. The bad guys are always lurking, looking for new ways (or repurposing old ones) to infiltrate your network and take anything that will make them money. It is always imperative to stay one step ahead, managing risk and ensuring compliance.

Armor’s vulnerability scanning service puts our clients in control of their network. Keeping them ahead of the next threat through increased visibility, preparedness, and protection. Armor’s service scans internal and external networks for technical vulnerabilities, patching, and compliance issues—providing clients with the ability to mitigate risk and ensure compliance. This vulnerability heads-up can be the difference between an epic cyberbattle success story or a tragedy of Infinity War proportions.

Armor’s vulnerability scanning service is powered by our industry-leading threat prevention and response platform, which not only keeps clients secure but gives them access to the Armor management portal (AMP) scanning console. Through AMP, they can manage their scans and vulnerability reports, review past incidents, and continually monitor compliance results to stop threats before they are attacks. The result? A secure environment that makes compliance easy.

Armor Vulnerability Scanning Delivers Enhanced Security and Eases the Path to Compliance


An external vulnerability scan looks for gaps in your network firewalls, where bad guys can get in and wreak havoc. An internal vulnerability scan operates inside your organization’s firewalls to identify real and potential vulnerabilities in your environment.

Armor external vulnerability scanning service:
Offered for publicly available Armor Anywhere-protected instances on an individual request basis through the Armor ticketing system on AMP.
Schedule scans and through the agent*:

  • Collect the following types of data:
      – Basic asset identification information
      – Windows registry information
      – File version and package information
  • Compress it
  • Submit it back to its cloud

Armor internal vulnerability scanning service:

  • Installs with the Armor agent
  • Performs local scans on the installed asset
  • Reports vulnerability, patching, and compliance results
  • Presents scan results through AMP scanning console

Access output and reports on the Armor security dashboard.

*The agent performs a “Full Audit without Web Spider” scan. A full network audit, it uses only safe checks, including network-based vulnerabilities, patch/hotfix checking, and application-layer auditing.
