Security Vulnerability Management
Open VAS: OpenVAS is a free, open-source vulnerability scanner which can implement pretty much any type of vulnerability test.
KALI: This all-in-one box not only gives you access to OpenVAS, but also provides access to other tools used in security vulnerability assessment and penetration testing. (It’s okay. We all giggle when we read “penetration testing”, too.)

Training & Threat Assessment: The items listed below are critical for prevention and drafting a response plan should your company suffer a cyberattack. Therefore we advise you contact a Cyber Security firm to draft prevention and incident response plans. Each company is unique and will have a different plan designed on requirements.
