Vulnerability Scanning and Assessment

The complexity of your enterprise provides myriad points of potential intrusion. Certainly, most susceptible are external-facing web applications, but no less fundamental to your enterprise’s security are the server and network infrastructure and the peripheral devices connected to it. Vulnerability scanning that aggressively addresses the core components of your infrastructure is essential for maintaining your security compliance, the integrity of your applications and files, as it will then allow a remediation plan to be put in place based on the assessment of those vulnerabilities.

The Cautela Labs Scanning and Assessment Service identifies vulnerabilities efficiently and accurately, protecting critical network assets and intellectual property. It will run tests to verify that effective security policies are in place for the following components:

  • Firewalls
  • Intrusion Prevention System (IPS)
  • Intrusion Detection System (IDS)
  • Application servers
  • Web servers
  • Active Directory controllers
  • Email servers
  • Layer2 and Layer3 Switches
  • Routers and gateways
  • All networked workstations and peripherals.

With the scanning performed, the risk assessed we can then devise a remediation plan to quickly mitigate them. The Plan enables IT and security groups to implement a measurable and proactive vulnerability management process that eliminates security weaknesses in your network before the network is penetrated and sensitive information is compromised. The ultimate benefits derived from this thorough and encompassing security assessment include:

  • A thorough assessment process helps direct senior management’s attention to IT security related issues.
    • Such as security issues and related risks & vulnerabilities with mitigation options.
  • Establishing a baseline: If a baseline has been established, an assessment is an opportunity to gauge the improvement or deterioration of an organization’s security posture.
  • Generating lists of vulnerabilities and potential responses is the main activity and outcome of an assessment.
  • An assessment can be a vehicle for reaching corporate-wide consensus on a hierarchy of key assets.
  • Ranking, combined with threat, vulnerability and risk analysis is the integral part of any risk management process.
