Prioritised Vulnerability Management
Add to this service, Vectra’s proactive vulnerability management for complete peace of mind.
The number of vulnerabilities has nearly doubled in the past two years. But the number of vulnerabilities being exploited is only a small fraction of the total.
IT security systems are a complex network of devices that can often have weaknesses that attackers can exploit. To ensure all assets are protected, it is important to undergo a process of scanning for current weaknesses in the system.
Scans will detect and then prioritise any vulnerabilities in your IT security system. This includes computers, servers and other communications equipment either on-premise or in the cloud.
There are two ways of detecting weaknesses:
- Authenticated scans – tests internal security measures to see who has access to different elements of your systems. This can be based on whether it’s staff or those who have gained access through illegal means.
- Unauthenticated scans – this is essentially an ethical hack. The aim to be a hacker and attempt to find and exploit any weaknesses in your current security system.
Ongoing maintenance of your security systems is important as weakness can emerge when an operating system or software is updated.
Vulnerability scanning on a regular basis is recommended as an essential security practice or to meet operational compliance where required.
