MegaplanIT's Vulnerability Scanning service unfolds over a number of phases. Breaking the process down allows our specialists to use information gathered along the way to improve the final vulnerability assessment and results in a deeper level of security because it allows us to locate entry points and vulnerability sources that might otherwise be missed.
Levels 1 through 4 Merchants and Service Providers are required to perform external vulnerability scanning on a quarterly basis.
A MegaplanIT security consultant will begin by identifying all external facing IPs that are in scope for vulnerability scanning.
Our consultant will coordinate with your team to schedule scanning activities. Your productivity is a priority, which is why we make sure our assessments never interfere with your organization’s workflow.
Once the external ASV scans are complete, the MegaplanIT consultant will review scan results internally to ensure accuracy. If any vulnerability exists, the MegaplanIT consultant will offer customized remediation consulting and perform retesting (if necessary).
Once your organization has passed the ASV scan, MegaplanIT will issue an Attestation of Scanning for submission to acquirers, processors, gateways, and other PCI stakeholders. We also provide detailed Technical Reports, including an Executive Summary, for your information and records.
