An external vulnerability scan is a security diagnostic process that aims to identify, quantify, and prioritize vulnerabilities in an organization's network's external-facing assets.

This type of scan targets your company's externally accessible servers, firewalls, and network devices to discover weaknesses before attackers do.

It's a critical component of cybersecurity hygiene. It provides insights into potential threats that could be exploited from outside the network, ensuring your external defense mechanisms are robust and up-to-date.
