Managed vulnerability scanning service to minimise risk exposure 

Vulnerability scanning is a vital component of a security testing program offering constant identification of new vulnerabilities in IT systems. The issues discovered are presented in easy to understand formats with actionable guidance. This input is essential to quantify and categorise risks before approaching risk remediation.

Why is Vulnerability Scanning service important for you?

With increasing advances in cyber attack landscape, it is important to stay on top of your assets exposure before hackers exploit your weaknesses. Fully managed vulnerability scanning offers constant checking and our consultants expertise offers handy approach on tactical risk remediation rather than getting consumed by lengthy reports and volumes of scan data. 

Managed Vulnerability Scanning

What is Managed Vulnerability Scanning process?

The main objective of managed vulnerability scanning is to provide constant insight into vulnerabilities and misconfigurations on an ongoing basis. The main stages of vulnerability scanning  process are explained below. Vulnerability assessment is a component of vulnerability management that is a time limited exercise aimed at finding vulnerabilities in your environment. Vulnerability scanning and management is an ongoing process that is more comprehensive and aimed at continuous identification and management of security vulnerabilities.

 

DISCOVER

This is essentially an asset discovery and classification phase. Today environments are complex and contain a variety of IT systems, devices, smart devices. What you can’t see, you won’t think about protecting those assets. It is just as simple. Asset discovery and classification need to be done on an ongoing basis.

ASSESS

Continuous vulnerability assessment provides you a clear picture of your attack surface. A thorough vulnerability assessment must be planned strategically and not left with a point and click scan functionality, in order to reflect the accuracy and consistent input to the next phase. Therefore, a balance of security needs and business needs must be taken into account before big decisions.

ANALYSE

Large amounts of data can be overwhelming for a vulnerability management program. Forget risk remediation, you may not be able to verify the output data to confirm the high risk issues affecting your environment. Just like tactical patch management, analysis of the vulnerabilities and risk focussed prioritization is the key here.

FIX

Remediation of security vulnerabilities is what every organisation wants completed before threat actors exploit them. Based on the prioritization performed in the previous phase, it is important to close all those tickets to ensure ‘the known issues’ are not gateways for attackers success. Patching must be prioritised in line with risk focussed approach. However, this involves a number of other internal challenges such as identification and closing vulnerabilities with asset owners to call this process a success. 

VERIFY

The validation phase involves the verification of fixes with supporting technical data. This status is fed into the relevant KPIs/dashboards to ensure business risk is decreased.
