Jargon Buster External & Internal Managed Vulnerability Scanning

What is the difference between external & internal Managed Vulnerability Scanning

Courtney talks about the difference between External & Internal Managed Vulnerability Scanning

There is more than one kind of Managed Vulnerability Scanning. In this week’s edition of JUMPSEC’s cyber security Jargon Buster series, Courtney explains the difference between External and Internal Managed Vulnerability Scanning.


Video transcript:

“External Managed Vulnerability Scanning only targets infrastructure on the public Internet perimeter, such as web applications and VPN servers. By contrast, Internal Managed Vulnerability Scanning focuses only on your internal infrastructure, such as user workstations, file servers and so on. External and Internal Managed Vulnerability Scanning work well together, but depending on your company’s risk factor and expectations, one might offer greater benefits than the other.”
