What is vulnerability management?

Vulnerability management security is non-negotiable for modern businesses established in the digital space.

As software technologies, in their dynamic nature, advance in design, reach, automation, and integration, it adversely creates a ripple effect of software vulnerabilities that are anything but static. These daily-emerging cyber vulnerabilities or weaknesses, if exploited, could potentially wreak havoc on the entirety of an organisation’s network ecosystem. This is why vulnerability management security is non-negotiable for modern businesses established in the digital space. By definition, vulnerability management involves performing several interwoven processes and strategies to help checkmate security vulnerabilities. These processes or steps include;

  • Identification
  • Assessment or Evaluation
  • Remediation
  • Reporting

As one of the best vulnerability management solution companies, Mindfire undertakes these vulnerability management processes by scouring client operating systems, browsers, enterprise applications, user software and related applications. Mindfire proactively intercepts these vulnerabilities before they transform into threats while mitigating the damages done. As a bonus, we are integrated with comprehensive, real-time risk and vulnerability tracking abilities to keep up with evolving threats, prevent security breaches, and help you recover from one.

What is cyber vulnerability?

There are distinct types of security vulnerabilities ranked according to severity.

But first, what qualifies as a vulnerability? Think of vulnerability in cybersecurity as a hole in a roof. While this hole may not be an immediate risk to the house's structural integrity, the threat of a heavy downpour could instigate several damages trickling down to the loss of the property or, worse, lives.

Likewise, a network vulnerability could be a defect or weakness in an asset that could easily be exploited by a malicious actor who gains unauthorised control of an endpoint or server. These vulnerabilities can be found in code, as in the case of SQL injection or XSS opportunities. They may also be present in settings, ports or authentication mechanisms.

Now, the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) provides an avenue where cybersecurity solution providers like Mindfire can capture the principal characteristics of network, cyber and operating system vulnerabilities. On a scale of zero to ten, this system then yields a score to reflect the severity of said vulnerabilities. With this score, vulnerability management services like Mindfire can assess and define their vulnerability management processes based on priority.

The range of scores is represented as follows:

Why do you need vulnerability management?

The absence of vulnerability management systems can flood your entire business

Cybersecurity threats are continuous rather than seasonal, and the absence of vulnerability management systems can flood your entire business. Without software vulnerability management, your company's digital ecosystem is exposed, vulnerable and at the attacker's mercy.

How Mindfire’s Vulnerability Management Lifecycle Works

We commence our vulnerability management security measures by studying your network’s ecosystem to identify its strengths and weaknesses. This is the first step in our vulnerability management cycle.

Vulnerability Assessment

After spotting your ecosystem's existing and potential vulnerabilities while referencing the CVSS, we will assess and validate them using our Pen Testing Tools to weed out the vulnerabilities that are false positives. At this vulnerability assessment step, we will categorise the true vulnerabilities on a scale of preference based on their severity and criticality to your organisation. After this, we’ll design a vulnerability management strategy to accommodate your specific needs. We do this to prioritise the most severe vulnerabilities first, thus reducing the chances of an attack while we work to secure the rest of your system.

Identification of potential vulnerabilities

To prevent a cybersecurity attack, we must first prove the existence of a network vulnerability. At Mindfire, we will liaise with your IT team to scour through countless databases while using our threat intelligence systems as a guide. Here, we will take inventory of all digital assets while identifying details of the company’s services, applications, network and settings configurations, etc. Once we narrow down these systems and ports, our endpoint agents will conduct detailed adaptive vulnerability scans of all the internal and external networks to identify potential vulnerabilities.

Vulnerability Remediation

With the prioritised vulnerability management strategy, we can go ahead to eradicate the validated vulnerabilities. At Mindfire, we offer both preventive and remedial actions on catalogued vulnerabilities. Our vulnerability management strategy includes risk mitigation plans which we launch to reduce the chances of vulnerability exploitation or its impact on the network. We also deploy our security experts to annihilate said vulnerabilities by fully fixing, patching or reconfiguring your network settings. Once we have addressed all existing and potential vulnerabilities, we go the extra mile to rescan and conduct another penetration test. We do this to verify the remediation success of said threats, ensure that new vulnerabilities don’t emerge and gauge our strategy's efficacy.

Vulnerability Reporting

Mindfire’s competitive advantage is its provision of real-time access to risks, remedial actions, configuration exposures and compliance status. So, as an accountability-prioritising cybersecurity company, you best believe we will create a tactical, in-depth report on the identified and remediated vulnerabilities and the vulnerabilities management techniques we deployed. We do this to create a baseline from which we can improve in future.

The above steps are concerned with assessing the validity of the vulnerabilities, fixing said vulnerabilities and conducting detailed reports. Here is what they entail: At Mindfire, we understand that effective vulnerability management isn’t simply patching and reconfiguring security settings. For us, it’s a disciplined practice involving continuous discovery and remediation. Our dependable software vulnerability management system stays ahead of cyber attackers in this digitally dynamic era. Our vulnerability management as a service proffers 24/7 advanced surveillance and detection of evolving threats, end-to-end protection, remediation responses, and breach recovery assistance. Thus, we will effectively restrict cyber attackers from accessing or compromising your product, asset, or network.
