A vulnerability scanner is a computer program designed to assess computers, computer systems, networks or applications for known weaknesses. In plain words, these scanners are used to discover the weak points or poorly constructed parts. It’s utilized for the identification and detection of vulnerabilities relating to mis-configured assets or flawed software that resides on a network-based asset such as a firewall, router, web server, application server, etc. Modern vulnerability scanners will allow for both authenticated and unauthenticated scans to occur. A vulnerability scanner has the capabilities to customize vulnerability reports, installed software, open ports, certificates and much other host information that can be queried by users to increase network security.
Penetration testing is quite different, as it attempts to identify insecure business processes, poor security settings, and other weaknesses that a hacker could exploit. Transmission of unencrypted passwords, password reuse, and forgotten databases storing valid user credentials are examples of issues that can be discovered by a penetration test. Penetration tests do not need to be conducted as often as vulnerability scans but should be repeated on a regular basis or after major changes in code or function.
