Vulnerability management is vital in the protection and prevention against cyber-attacks. Being able Identify, Prioritise and Fix what matters most to you and has the greatest impact to your organisation, enabling you to reduce your attack surface.
Greenbone provide a pro-active and automated solution for vulnerability analysis and management.
Their solution identifies security risks across IT infrastructures, assesses their risk potential and recommends actions. The goal is to prevent attacks by targeting precautionary measures. This solution is the perfect complement to security tools such as NextGen Firewalls, IPS and advanced endpoint systems.
Why vulnerability assessment services?
The majority of recent cyber breaches that have crippled organisations, caused financial loss and reputational damage, have been down to un-patched vulnerable systems. Most of these vulnerabilities have been “known” about for months, yet have been exploited at many organisations, highlighted by recent headline news (e.g. WannaCry, Petya etc).
This raises the need for vulnerability assessment services by understanding what systems could be compromised, their importance to your organisation and how to protect them.
Services Available – Flexible Models
The vulnerability assessment service is available in the cloud, and as a managed or customer-maintained on-premise solution. Our customers who use this service are pro-actively protecting their environments from cyber-attacks and helping them gain compliance including cyber essentials certification.
Point in Time Vulnerabilities
“One-off” scans are an effective, ‘buy only’, check for current known vulnerabilities. They, however, provide no ability to understand the changes, nor the ability to predict future vulnerabilities.
Difficult to Manage & Protect
A myriad of vulnerabilities across multiple systems means that being able to identify, manage and fix everything is practically impossible.
Manual Management = High Risk & Cost
With so many systems to support and with no means of automation and prioritisation – manual management is costly, time consuming and leaves the user with high risks of attacks.
Limited or No Visibility
With no vulnerability assessment, you will only be able to understand your vulnerabilities once the attack has happened.
Non-Centralised = Expensive
Alternative on-premise solutions can be costly to purchase, customise and maintain. They often only suit larger networks (who can afford / justify).
Many systems lack the functionality to consolidate information and prioritise in order to protect against vulnerabilities.
Public sector framework for Vulnerability Assessment Services
KHIPU’s cyber security solutions including vulnerability assessment services and simulated phishing / awareness training are available via a single supplier public sector framework.
