Proactive Network Security Defense: The Importance of Frequent Vulnerability Scans

A key area of network security is knowing the weaknesses in your system. While the vulnerabilities of the Windows operating system are fairly common knowledge, there are many other ways in which your environment is vulnerable to threats. The vulnerability scans offered by RAVENii are designed to help you expose and identify these weak points.




With over 70% of desktop, tablet, and console users, Windows is the most widely used computer operating system. Naturally, this means it is a common target for hackers. While patches for vulnerable software typically come out quickly when network security concerns arise, it is important to remain vigilant.  The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) provides alerts on their website for compromised software. The information found here is useful, but regular vulnerability scans will keep you informed about your risk of exposure.


Hardware and Software Threats


While windows has it’s vulnerabilities, threats to your network security are more likely to come from other hardware and software sources. Users in your network could expose your environment to dangers through the click of a mouse at almost any time. Tracking the activity of every user in your environment is an intimidating task. RAVENii’s vulnerability management helps tackle this problem.


Software threats are something many people hear about a lot. Viruses and worms, phishing attacks, and ransomware are all fairly common topics that most of us hear about in the news regularly. A hardware vulnerability is an exploitable weakness in a computer system that enables an attack through remote or physical access to system hardware. Any means by which code can be introduced to a computer is inherently a hardware vulnerability.
