There is no charge for use of this service.

The Managed Vulnerability Detection Service offered by the Information Security & Policy Office can be requested for ad-hoc assessment of workstations and servers on campus. We use this service for scanning for vulnerabilities in ITS-managed datacenters as well as systems on campus. The tools we use for these assessments are routinely used to evaluate the security posture of our campus network and to identify devices and systems that are vulnerable to specific threats.

In some cases we can also check for vulnerable packages of software installed on remote systems, please contact the ISPO for further information or complete the workflow form below to schedule an assessment.

Note: Scans are available for University of Iowa systems & addresses only

Form for Vulnerability Scan Requests: Please allow 3-5 working days for your scan to be scheduled and completed
