Vulnerability Management (VMS)

Vulnerability Management is absolutely crucial from a systems security point of view and every company should have it in place. Vulnerability scanners can be used to easily and quickly detect vulnerabilities in the network.

Vulnerability Management Systems

Prioritisation is the foundation of effective vulnerability management. In an IT environment, it is not uncommon to discover hundreds of vulnerabilities. However, it is neither efficient nor practical to address them all at once. This is where prioritization comes in.

Prioritization goes beyond simply relying on the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS). While the CVSS is a valuable metric, it does not provide a complete picture of the risk a vulnerability poses to an organization. Effective prioritization takes into account a variety of factors, including:
  • Threat Intelligence: this is real-time information about emerging threats and vulnerabilities. Incorporating it into your vulnerability management process enables you to stay ahead of potential attacks and allocate resources accordingly.
  • Exploitability: understanding whether a vulnerability is being actively exploited is crucial. Vulnerabilities with known exploits should be prioritised.
  • System types: Not all systems are equally critical. The type of system attacked should also be considered when prioritizing. 

Solution description

Customization of reporting
Reporting flexibility is a key feature of vulnerability management systems. Organizations have different stakeholders in this process, each with their own needs. Customized reporting enables the output to be tailored to different user groups, including executives, auditors, and technical teams. This ensures that the information is not only accessible but also meaningful to the intended recipients.

Compliance check
In addition to newly discovered vulnerabilities, a common stumbling block is misconfiguration of the target system. With VMS, we can automate compliance checks on a wide range of systems, according to various standards (e.g. CIS, DISA, PCI DSS,...) and based on customized policies defined directly by the customer.

Integration with other security tools
The integration of VMS with other tools such as Privileged Access Management (PAM) and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) brings a significant increase in the efficiency and security of the IT infrastructure. PAM integration enables the management of privileged accounts and access based on identified vulnerabilities, reducing the risk of misuse. SIEM integration enables rapid detection and response to incidents associated with identified vulnerabilities, greatly improving the ability to monitor and defend against current threats. These synergies thus strengthen an organization's ability to respond to ever-changing security challenges and protect its assets and data.

Efficient use of resources
One of the most often overlooked benefits of effective vulnerability management is the efficient use of resources. By automating and streamlining the process of identifying and remediating vulnerabilities, organizations can save costs that would otherwise be spent on manual testing and remediation.

In summary, effective vulnerability management goes beyond simply identifying vulnerabilities; it is about intelligent prioritization, integration with other security systems, leadership and efficiency. In today's ever-evolving threat landscape, organizations that excel at vulnerability management are better positioned to protect their assets and data from cyber threats.
