The External Vulnerability Service (EVS) provides regular, scheduled scans of your perimeter. If a scan finds a problem then you get to find out before the bad guys do, this means that you can close potential “ways in” before they are exploited.
In internet / digital terms, this is what is visible from the outside if someone is trying to break in. Think of it as the equivalent of the security that you have on your office building: doors and windows with locks, an alarm, etc. This service provides the internet / digital equivalent of checking all of the entry points to your office on a scheduled basis. It not only checks to see whether the defences that should be there, still are, but it also checks to see whether any newly discovered ways of breaking in are available. These “newly discovered ways of breaking in” occur a lot so this element is vital to your continued security.
Most businesses have various defences in place such as antivirus programs and a firewall. If these are in place, then why would you need EVS? No protection is perfect, and this changes all the time; what was impenetrable yesterday may not be so tomorrow. EVS is a low-cost way of regularly checking that your defences are maintained at the level that you expect.
