Vulnerability scanning can be used to identify weaknesses in networks and applications. Systems are checked against a catalogue of known vulnerabilities to see if the underlying code, frameworks, libraries, or protocols that are in use, risk exposing the system to threats.

Penetration testing (sometimes referred to as a pen test) compliments vulnerability scanning. It includes active testing of system vulnerabilities and human factors (e.g., social engineering) by specialist to identify and mitigate your organisation’s operational risks if you are targeted by malicious actors.
