Cloud Vulnerability Scanning

Automate your cloud security. Gain complete visibility into your cloud systems. Reduce cloud security spend.

Never miss a new cloud system

Internet-facing infrastructure, weak credential management and stretching your attack surface across multiple providers all make cloud platforms prone to security breaches.

Intruder's cloud vulnerability scanner works to eliminate these risks, helping you see what an attacker sees. It shows you what’s live, automatically discovers new cloud services and kicks off vulnerability scans when anything changes making it easy to reduce your attack surface.

What is a cloud security scanner?

A cloud security scanner is a tool that identifies weaknesses in internet-facing systems and services hosted in the cloud.

It safely sends probes from an untrusted internet address to detect issues like unintentionally exposed systems, information leakage, encryption weaknesses, misconfigurations, common mistakes, remote vulnerable software, and missing patches.

A cloud vulnerability management tool like Intruder integrates with your cloud accounts to automatically discover and scan newly deployed services.

See how easy cloud vulnerability scanning can be

Automate vulnerability management across your cloud

Integrate all of your cloud environments in one place. Schedule scans to run at times that suit you best. Get alerts via Slack, Teams or email of any changes or weaknesses across your attack surface.

Keep track of your attack surface, continuously

Minimize your exposure window. Set Intruder up to automatically discover new services exposed to the internet and kick off vulnerability scans on any changes. Emerging threat scans check your systems for new vulnerabilities released, highlighting weaknesses within hours.

Control your cloud security costs

Intruder's cloud scanner automatically finds and removes any systems that no longer need to be running. You can use import rules to only include and scan the assets you need. We convert your cloud tags to Intruder tags so you can manage your targets effectively.

Stop threats in their tracks

With 65+ new vulnerabilities discovered daily, most businesses don't have the time or expertise to stay on top of them.

Intruder works to protect customers of all sizes from known emerging threats and discovered threats in the wild. So, when attackers are alerted to emerging vulnerabilities, we are too - and we are already checking your systems for them.

How often should you scan?

The time between a vulnerability being discovered and hackers exploiting it is narrower than ever – just 12 days. We explain why continuous vulnerability scanning has become essential and how you can best implement it.

Intruder makes it easy to adopt a continuous approach. Learn more.

What are emerging threat scans?
faq arrow

Intruder’s cloud vulnerability scanner includes proactive checks for emerging threats. This means when a new vulnerability is discovered in software deployed on your perimeter, Intruder scans your systems and alerts you to newly discovered vulnerabilities automatically. This kind of proactive action is essential for businesses that don’t have processes in place to research the latest threats and manually run scans for them. Learn more.

Can I use Intruder to scan applications?
faq arrow

Yes, you can carry out authenticated and unauthenticated vulnerability scans for web applications (including single page applications) and APIs.
