The results of vulnerability assessment tools represent a snapshot of system security at a particular point in time. Although these systems usually don’t reliably detect an attack in progress, they can determine whether an attack is possible, and furthermore, provide information about what can be done to minimize possibility of damage from an attack.
Many companies provide Vulnerability Assessments, but it is advisable to consult with multiple vendors prior to deciding who will be given access to network. The key factor is whether you are comfortable with their experience level, and type of reports that can be provided.
