Greenbone Professional Edition

The Greenbone Professional Edition (GPE) is an – physical or virtual form available – appliance for the vulnerability management of IT infrastructures.

It consists of the Greenbone Operating System (GOS) on which the Greenbone Security Feed (GSF) is installed, a scan service, the web interface and, in case of a physical appliance, a special hardware. The scan service uses Vulnerability Tests ( VTs) to detect existing vulnerabilities on the inspected network.

The found vulnerabilities are evaluated based on their severity which enables the setting of priorities for eliminating the vulnerabilities.

The GPE is flexible in use and can be utilized for special audits and trainings as as for small and medium companies up to large enterprises. Due to the master-sensor technology, the GPE can also be deployed in high-security sectors via Airgap.

Greenbone Cloud Services

The Greenbone Cloud Services {GCS) offer a technically high-quality, easy to use service for everything connected with vulnerability management.

The GCS check your IT infrastructure for security gaps in only a few steps and then deliver a report containing all found vulnerabilities, sorted by severity.

For this, the GCS provide predefined bundles for companies of different sizes to scan 10 – 100 external IP addresses per month and/ or 50 – 100,000 internal IP addresses per month.

Micro-businesses with a high security requirement can use the GCS in self-service as well as large and medium-sized enterprises or cities and communities.

Users log in using their access data and are able to work with the GCS independent of their location. While doing so, both public IP services (WWW server, e-mail server, etc.) and internal net works can be scanned. The packets are structured as subscriptions and can be terminated or edited on a monthly basis.

FREE OF CHARGE Vulnerability Scan


With a pro-active ‘pre-attack’ approach to protection and prevention, you can automate the management and prioritisation of vulnerabilities across your entire environment. It simplifies your approach to cyber protection – just ask our customers who are using the service.

The FREE OF CHARGE service includes:

  • A vulnerability scan across a select number of mission critical hosts
  • A Vulnerability Results Dynamic Report which details any vulnerabilities identified, their severity and how to fix

Greenbone provide a pro-active and automated solution for vulnerability analysis and management.

Their solution identifies security risks across IT infrastructures, assesses their risk potential and recommends actions. The goal is to prevent attacks by targeting precautionary measures. This solution is the perfect complement to security tools such as NextGen Firewalls, IPS and advanced endpoint systems.

Why vulnerability assessment services?

The majority of recent cyber breaches that have crippled organisations, caused financial loss and reputational damage, have been down to un-patched vulnerable systems. Most of these vulnerabilities have been “known” about for months, yet have been exploited at many organisations, highlighted by recent headline news (e.g. WannaCry, Petya etc).

This raises the need for vulnerability assessment services by understanding what systems could be compromised, their importance to your organisation and how to protect them.

Services Available – Flexible Models

The vulnerability assessment service is available in the cloud, and as a managed or customer-maintained on-premise solution. Our customers who use this service are pro-actively protecting their environments from cyber-attacks and helping them gain compliance including cyber essentials certification.

Todays Challenges

Point in Time Vulnerabilities

“One-off” scans are an effective, ‘buy only’, check for current known vulnerabilities. They, however, provide no ability to understand the changes, nor the ability to predict future vulnerabilities.

Difficult to Manage & Protect

A myriad of vulnerabilities across multiple systems means that being able to identify, manage and fix everything is practically impossible.

Manual Management = High Risk & Cost

With so many systems to support and with no means of automation and prioritisation – manual management is costly, time consuming and leaves the user with high risks of attacks.


Limited or No Visibility

With no vulnerability assessment, you will only be able to understand your vulnerabilities once the attack has happened.

Non-Centralised = Expensive

Alternative on-premise solutions can be costly to purchase, customise and maintain. They often only suit larger networks (who can afford / justify).

Information Overload

Many systems lack the functionality to consolidate information and prioritise in order to protect against vulnerabilities.

Public sector framework for Vulnerability Assessment Services

KHIPU’s cyber security solutions including vulnerability assessment services and simulated phishing / awareness training are available via a single supplier public sector framework.

Many of our education sector customers have procured KHIPU solutions from these public sector frameworks.
