OREM, Utah, June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- For many businesses, external vulnerability scanning, while necessary, can become cumbersome and take a lot of time, especially if your organization is large, or deals with a lot of IP addresses.
SecurityMetrics released its latest product, Perimeter Scan, to help organizations discover external vulnerabilities on their network and help meet compliance with financial (PCI DSS) and healthcare (HIPAA) mandates. Perimeter Scan is aimed specifically for larger organizations that have more complex network configurations and IP ranges that require a simplified form of scan management.
Perimeter Scan allows customers to run scans without requiring a PCI account. Businesses can run scans separately from their usual PCI scans to avoid paying for quarterly scan or have it affect their current PCI compliance status. Perimeter Scan also gives businesses more flexibility on grouping and creating target groups, giving them more options on bulk uploading and scanning.
Some features of Perimeter Scan include:
- Ability to scan groups of scan targets to simplify the scanning process
- Credit-based payment options
- Ability to add and remove addresses quickly to accommodate businesses with more dynamic addresses
- 24/7 support for business in all time zones and regions
- Bulk upload option that allows businesses to upload multiple addresses at once
- Sortable scan reports that allow businesses to sort by vulnerability type or severity
"Many organizations have multiple addresses and networks that need to be scanned, and regular vulnerability scanning can get bogged down," says security analyst Brand Barney. "These types of organizations need a scanner that's more efficient and convenient."
