IT vulnerabilities, sometimes called “technical vulnerabilities,” arise because of flaws created during software coding or hardware configuration. Some of these vulnerabilities can be exploited by hackers. 

Vulnerabilities can be found in websites, apps, firmware, or even cloud services. Usually, these issues arise because of human error, although sometimes they’re created by malicious activity.

As your business grows, its “attack surface” also becomes bigger. The best way to find and heal vulnerabilities is to preemptively look for them. That’s why we recommend and perform frequent website and app vulnerability assessments for our clients, including penetration testing.
