Vulnerability Management

Identify & Correct Vulnerabilities, Secure Your Systems

Identify

Treat, Protect

The information stored on your network is critical to your business. However, inherent vulnerabilities in your computer systems can allow unauthorised users to exploit the same systems you are using to protect your data.

Vulnerabilities can occur due to upgrades, changes to the system or simply by new system bugs being discovered. Once these vulnerabilities exist on your network, they can be exploited to compromise the data held on it.

To this end SYLVERSYS has the skills and solutions to provide our clients with a Vulnerability Management Service. We offers network security audits and vulnerability management to companies of all sizes.

A solid vulnerability management program goes far beyond vulnerability scanning. For every vulnerability that is discovered, a mature vulnerability management program should be able to:

  • Identify the vulnerability
  • Measure risk
  • Drive remediation
  • Retest to ensure closure
  • Establish root cause (how the vulnerability was introduced)

Periodic Assessments

Constant Validation of Your Systems

Given the dynamic nature of IT environments, annual vulnerability assessments can leave organizations vulnerable to a wide range of threats ranging from unpatched hosts to rogue assets.  To effectively manage threats, organizations should periodically validate the security posture of information assets by auditing for common software vulnerabilities and configuration weaknesses.  This process includes frequent auditing against standards, configurations, patch management, change control and other operational processes.  A comprehensive vulnerability management program integrates into the culture of an IT security program as a systemic activity and allows interested parties to understand the relative risk level of technology assets at any given time.

SYLVERSYS’ Vulnerability Management consulting service implements tools and processes to help security stakeholders periodically validate the security posture of information assets over their entire lifecycle.  Our approach develops and deploys the foundational components of a vulnerability management program.  Additionally, SYLVERSYS can manage the program from both a strategic and tactical perspective.  The approach includes on-site and remote assistance in vulnerability management and periodic testing exercises to ensure defenses are working as planned.

The Threat & Vulnerability Management team protects and secures client information assets through threat and vulnerability assessments. Assignments range from performing ‘ethical hacking’ to realistically testing the design and effectiveness of the controls of internet systems, applications, remote access points, as well as internal networks and systems.

Our Consultants have gained experience in evaluating technical and operational controls implemented within systems and business processes against global standard practices. We will review your system’s security and controls at the design stage to ensure that the risks have been adequately considered and mitigated along with our dynamic team of consultants.

Value

Why use it

The Vulnerability Assessment services evaluate the strength of your defenses against the attacks that are most likely to be used by attackers. Our consultants leverage methodologies from our incident response practice to provide the most in-depth and real world scenarios possible. Vulnerability Assessments provide you with actionable recommendations. All findings are rated based on risk, probability of exploitation, and potential business impact. This allows you to address the issues that matter the most to you.

We customize the exploitation and assessment work to your environment and goals. For example, you specify separate instances of critical data that cannot be lost and we attempt to break into the environment and access that data. Our red team can often stealthily break into highly segmented and secure environments and exfiltrate example data.
