Securing Your Business By Eliminating Vulnerabilities
Vulnerability Management is an integral part of your overall layered security approach. It includes 4 different components to round out your strategy. Identification includes scanning the network for all the hardware and software within your network because you can’t protect what you don’t know about. Then accurately and reliably identifying every vulnerability within those systems on the entire network infrastructure. Classification is understanding the who, what, and where of the discovered vulnerabilities in order to properly address them. Once we address the issue we move on to remediation which includes fixing the vulnerability and a strategy to reduce the risk for it happening again. And the last component is mitigation which includes the actionable steps to move forward.

Components of Vulnerability Management
It is critical to run scans to discover rogue devices and software that make your network susceptible to attack. These authenticated scans discover 3 times more vulnerabilities than unauthenticated scans.
Vulnerabilities are logically organized into actionable groups that focus on the highest areas of risk in the environment. And targeted reports address executive level trending as well as technical remediation priorities.
By applying patches, changing configurations, removing software and upgrading devices, you can successfully fix the incident or incidences.
Implementing firewalls or firewall rules and properly documented risk acceptance processes help to move your business forward.
