Departmental Network Vulnerability Scanning

Overview

In addition to our Campus-wide Network Vulnerability Scanning service, we offer the use of our scanning tools to campus IT staff to proactively discover vulnerabilities on their systems. We offer:

  • An account on our Nessus server and access to a web UI to configure and launch scans
  • Access to perform custom, on-demand scans of your department's network devices
  • A regularly scheduled full vulnerability scan with results sent as an encrypted ZIP via email

Hackers will test a system's defenses for weaknesses and, if found, exploit them to take control of the system. Security administrators can use our tools to find weaknesses or vulnerabilities on the systems they support before they are discovered by hackers.

How to Get Started

Email security@berkeley.edu with your request for a departmental Nessus scanner account, indicating your departmental affiliation and security contact email address.
