Vulnerability Management

We can help you develop a reference architecture that paves the way for implementing good security
practices across building blocks such as user, endpoint, data, application, platform, network and physical infrastructure

A Rise In Breaches

The average data breach in 2021 cost £3.2m and took 287 days to identify and contain (IBM), while 57% of cyber victims disclosed that their breach was directly attributed to an unpatched vulnerability in their systems (Ponemon Research).

While we all like to think that it will never happen to us, the continual exposure of networks and services means it is increasingly common for organisations to be successfully infiltrated.


Without proper tools, organisations can be unaware of the true extent of the vulnerabilities facing their business, until they have been exploited. Even then, they may not surface if the attack has no apparent impact, leaving their data and systems exposed for significant periods of time

Vulnerabilities are not just linked to external opportunists and those with malicious intent. Quite often they exist internally too, allowing employees to gain privileged access due to a loss of focus on permission levels and security credentials

Vulnerability Assessments

Whether it be as a result of an upcoming compliance audit or as a result of needing to maintain your business continuity plan, conducting a vulnerability assessment provides an insight into the current challenges facing your business

Penetration Testing (AE)

From physical social engineering and pen testing, to wireless security and website testing, we provide a range of vulnerability assessments, designed to simulate in the way an attacker would gain access to systems and information

Anti Phishing Assessment (AE)

An up front consultant-led service which imitates real phishing attacks in a safe and controlled fashion to increase security awareness, with custom-designed educational material which aims to provide employees with the tools and skills needed to reduce the threat of phishing attacks in your business.

Patching Audit

Using discovery tools to illuminate all four corners of your environment, we provide a comprehensive report that highlights recommended patches on a per-server / per application basis, so you can take immediate action or choose to enrol in Ultima’s Patch Management as a Service.

Vulnerability Scan

We can help you make sense of the dangers facing your organisation, reviewing systems against Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) registries to help determine a prioritised remediation plan

Critical Infrastructure Vulnerability Assessment

Receive insights on the health of your critical infrastructure, with severity scores to aligned to the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS), allowing responders to prioritize resources according to threat.

Security Architecture

From poor configuration, legacy systems which fall outside of vendor support and neglect, to ineffective security policies and a lack of investment in security awareness or training, there are many reasons why an organisation may become more susceptible to attack over time.

Our security practitioners are able to develop solutions that cover everything from identity and access management, patching and firmware updates, security operations and business continuity management, to IT assurance and compliance.

Security Remediation

Even the most well-intentioned and resourced enterprise can only remediate a small proportion of vulnerabilities found.

This is because they often lack the skills and experience to implement the changes needed, hindered too by budget, projects and other higher priority activities. Tracking remediation efforts can often lead to the list remaining static or even growing, as new exploits are discovered faster than existing ones are overcome.

And when everything is a priority and remediation deadlines are looming, staff find themselves working ineffectively, jumping from case to case and problem to problem, often without knowing if they are working on the right thing.

Patch and Vulnerability
as a Service

Data centre infrastructure eventually reaches the end life and must be replaced. Fact. Maintaining legacy systems past their intended support date is risky, and in many impacts business operations, security and compliance.

As a result, IT teams struggle to respond to future business requirements, as the underlying platform doesn’t support or integrate with new technologies. If this sounds familiar, check out our packaged services below. We can help you get off the naughty list in no time!

Patch Management as a Service

Reduce the threat footprint facing your organisation and meet compliance obligations, with three tiers of service, aimed at providing flexibility over what you want patched

Anti Phishing as a Service

Designed to reduce the probability and impact of social engineering, our anti-phishing campaigns are underpinned by over 200 email, SMS and landing page designs, with custom educational material aimed at providing employees with the tools to reduce the threat of attacks

Knowledge Lab

Informative and interactive courses give employees the confidence to understand complex cyber security threats. We teach users how common social engineering techniques such as phishing and tailgating, are used to steal information, before giving them the skills they need to defend against these threats.

Managed Vulnerability Management

Based on the industry leading Qualys VMDR, combined with its powerful lightweight Cloud Agents, Virtual Scanners, and Network Analysis, bring together automated asset identification and categorisation, real time vulnerability and mis-configuration detection, automated remediation prioritisation and flexible architecture.

Why Ultima?

We look at your business holistically, identifying the additional security controls that might be needed (e.g. anti-virus or next-generation firewalls), alongside where they should be placed to best protect your employees, data and services.

We work with security and compliance teams, system owners and administrators to define and implement the right course of action, from introducing a comprehensive patching regime to enforcing policies to strengthen authentication


We go further than traditional information security testing by targeting your company the way an attacker would – by identifying weaknesses and helping to improve a multitude of defences.


From patching implementing a zero-trust model and configuring disk encryption, to employing a robust password policy, we can ensure attackers are met with a dead end, when trying to infiltrate your organisation


We provide a consultant-led Anti Phishing service, which imitates a range of social engineering attacks in a safe and controlled fashion, to increase security awareness and provide a robust security culture across your organisation
