LEADING managed service provider for cyber security, hybrid cloud, and data centre services, Brightsolid today announces the launch of its Managed Vulnerability Scanning (MVS) service. 

Designed to help organisations in Scotland and the north of England identify security weaknesses, vulnerabilities, and issues in their IT systems before a targeted attack or exploitation occurs, MVS aims to:  

  • increase an organisation’s security posture 
  • give peace of mind 
  • prevent damaging financial, reputational and legal repercussions.   

Brightsolid has over 25 years of expertise in cloud, infrastructure and security, and its new MVS solution adds to the Dundee-based company’s renowned suite of private and public sector managed services solutions.  

The MVS will allow organisations access on a weekly, quarterly, or monthly basis to the industry-leading Tenable software platform. Providing built-in metrics this assesses and ranks vulnerabilities from low to high risk as they relate to the business, workforce and customers; helps verify and highlight through standard dashboards that these risks have been addressed; and prepares reports to key stakeholders on trends and future vulnerabilities.  

Using the detailed information provided, Brightsolid’s experienced in-house Security Operations Centre (SOC) team of security analysts and engineers will scan, prioritise and remediate the most critical and urgent exposures based on business and risk context, providing clear guidance and remediation advice.  

Commenting on the announcement David Taylor, Head of Cyber Security, Brightsolid said: “Each day due to unidentified weaknesses in their infrastructure, organisations leave themselves vulnerable to a cyberattack with the potential to cause serious financial, reputational, and legal damage.  

“Here at Brightsolid, we wanted to create a cost-effective and professional service which will address such vulnerabilities and significant, critical threats.  

“Combining leading software with knowledge and expertise will ensure that our MVS achieves this aim for our clients and allows them to concentrate on their core business initiatives and not worry about the robustness of their security.” 

In speaking about the partnership with Tenable.io, Andy Sinclair, Chief Technology Officer, Brightsolid said: “When it came to selecting a collaborative partner for our MVS, Tenable.io offered the most comprehensive vulnerability scanning within the marketplace with swift, effective and efficient implementation and trustworthy results. The combination of Tenable.io and Brightsolid’s experts in cybersecurity gives customers significantly greater value than leveraging a self-managed vulnerability service.” 

“This partnership further demonstrates how Brightsolid’s comprehensive cyber security service offering is evolving to help strengthen the cyber resilience of UK organisations and provide them with an end-to-end managed solution that they can count on.”
