Most small business owners focus their time and money on addressing security threats at the perimeter, but few pay attention to protecting their internal network. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) Requirement 11.2 requires business owners with systems that process card data to conduct a vulnerability scan of their internal environment on a quarterly basis. This helps to identify weaknesses in the network behind their firewall, such as systems that need to be patched.
Viking Cloud’s Internal Vulnerability Scanning (IVS) is a web-based internal vulnerability scanning service. IVS does not require additional software or hardware to be implemented; it delivers powerful, enterprise class security technology from the cloud to identify real and potential vulnerabilities within your internal network. The simple, Web-based interface is easy to operate, and the reports clearly describe any detected vulnerabilities, providing you with easy-to-understand remediation directions.
