Enterprise IT security starts with a single question: where are the vulnerabilities in our IT networks, where is the danger?
Greenbone produces and maintains two feeds: the Greenbone Enterprise Feed and the Greenbone Community Feed. They deliver the tests for detecting existing vulnerabilities and information about their threat potential.
With the vulnerability tests, the scanner checks all systems, such as servers, firewalls or switches in your IT network for known and potential security gaps, providing new insights into existing vulnerabilities. The identified systems are examined for various attributes: operating system, open ports, installed software, user accounts, file system structure, system configurations and much more.
Currently, the feeds contain a huge number of vulnerability tests and new updates are added daily.
Here you can find more information about the timeline for most known vulnerabilities – from their discovery to the deployment of vulnerability tests to address them.
