Vulnerability scans actively probe for system vulnerabilities. Vulnerability Scans perform a multi-level scan using an extensive database of known security holes to identify common system vulnerabilities.
Vulnerability scans reduce the vulnerability of University computers to attacks, denial of service and other security risks from both inside and outside the University. The scanning tool produces a detailed security report, often including detailed instructions on how to remediate or mitigate the identified vulnerability. Additional Information can be found in our procedure outlined here.
Service is available during regular working hours, except during planned maintenance and upgrades. Scans must be scheduled at least one working day prior to the desired scan date.
