Vulnerability Management

With Vulnerability Management, you look at your IT infrastructure from the outside - from the perspective of a potential attacker, so to speak. The goal is to find every existing vulnerability in your IT infrastructure.

The technical findings must therefore result in a work process that leads to the closure of the vulnerabilities. A vulnerability management process should regulate three things:

Who receives what information about discovered vulnerabilities and when? Who is responsible for which steps? Which means and ways are available?

Always one step ahead of the attackers

IT security is a process - vulnerability management provides the basis. Only those who know their vulnerabilities can implement security measures in a targeted manner.

The process - from detection to remediation and control - runs in a constant cycle. This keeps you one step ahead of the attackers.

Another advantage is that the IT security solutions used can be focused specifically on the hot spots. This increases the efficiency of antivirus systems, firewalls and the like.

Identify and manage risks.

Any IT system that can be abused and is accessible to an attacker with sufficient capabilities becomes a risk.

Typical causes of vulnerabilities are misconfigurations or programming errors, unauthorized installations or violations of security policies. Greenbone Security Manager uncovers these and countless other risks - and helps you classify and prioritize measures.

Targeted action - Greenbone shows you how to

Your Greenbone Security Manager tests your IT network and all connected devices for almost 90,000 vulnerabilities - automatically.

You receive an exact status of your company's security situation on a daily basis. The Vulnerability Check also provides you with information on the severity level.

This allows you to easily prioritize the identified vulnerabilities and the measures to be taken. Understand security as a process.

The management of vulnerabilities also includes their remediation.

Prioritize measures

A vulnerability in the web server on the Internet carries a higher risk than an offline system with telephone access. Damage to production machines is usually much more expensive than to the web server for image films.

Therefore, economic prioritization of countermeasures is important.

Why IT security?

Today, IT is a central component of every company and forms the basis for almost all business processes. Almost nothing works without it. If IT malfunctions occur, in the worst case scenario this can bring the entire business to a standstill. This causes great economic damage and leads to loss of reputation. It is therefore essential for companies to secure their IT systems and protect them against cyber risks and cyber attacks. At the same time, the attack surface is also growing with increasing networking. This is because every networked device is a potential gateway for cyber criminals. This increases the risk of attacks.

Why information security?

Information is one of the most valuable assets for companies. Today, most of it exists as digital data within IT systems, where it is stored, transported and processed. But it can also still be stored on paper or passed on verbally. If information is lost, stolen, manipulated or can no longer be processed, this can threaten the existence of companies. It is therefore important to ensure adequate information security to guarantee the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information.

What is the impact of an attack on my information?

If the availability, confidentiality or integrity of information is compromised, this can have serious consequences. For example, an attack can put confidential data in the wrong hands - be it personal data or corporate secrets. Hackers can use it for industrial espionage, steal people's identities, misuse credit card information and much more. If data is manipulated, this leads, for example, to incorrect bookings, errors in production or false analysis results. Even if data is not available, this impairs business processes that rely on the processing of the data. For example, orders cannot be placed or production machines come to a standstill.
