THE CHALLENGE


Vulnerability management is a crucial process in any regulatory compliance and information security program framework. According to a Forrester Global Security Survey, 49% of organizations have suffered breaches in the past year, and the largest factor in those breaches were software vulnerabilities.

Several vulnerabilities are identified each year and managing all of them and staying ahead of risks is a big issue for many enterprises. Rapidly changing and complex infrastructures are at the frontline of such broad attacks. Vulnerability and threat management needs to be a continuous process - a “one scan to fix them all” will not do the trick at the enterprise level.


SEQURETEK’S APPROACH


Sequretek Vulnerability and Threat Management provides an independent baseline and validation of the organization’s security posture. It simulates attacks to identify vulnerabilities in the Network, Systems and Applications, to evaluate risks and develop remediation plans tailored to unique business requirements and security needs


VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENTS


The vulnerability assessments encompass scanning of the target infrastructure, establishing a baseline and making compliance easier by validating external posture. They also provide an overall security picture at a lower cost with repeatable exercises; and periodically verifying assets (infra and apps) are properly protected; evaluating recurring differentials and managing vulnerability.


PENETRATION TESTING


Penetration testing involves manual testing of exploits, in addition to false positive reduction of automated results. The tests are conducted from the perspective of a malicious external entity, or that of a rogue internal resource, verifying that in-depth defence and response capabilities are working as designed, along with validation of security controls.
