Be Always Ready By Eliminating Vulnerabilities Early
95% of all damaging cyber attacks are the result of exploiting well-known vulnerabilities. As your dependence on technology increases and you introduce additional electronic systems and software to support your operations, the rate of discovering and exploiting software vulnerabilities will continue to rise.
In today’s complex threat environment of malware, spyware, disgruntled employees and aggressive international hackers, developing and enforcing a strict and regular network security policy that incorporates ongoing vulnerability assessment is critical to maintaining business continuity. However, the process of vulnerability assessment and remediation sometimes is overlooked as a critical component of sound security practices.
Due to the changing nature of the security landscape and business requirements, new threats are putting organizations and their data at risk. By not taking steps to recognize and eliminate vulnerabilities, organizations, their systems and applications are potentially susceptible to exploitation, on a recurring basis.
Alpen Technology Group’s Security Appliance allows us to perform targeted or network-wide vulnerability scans to anticipate and prevent common system vulnerabilities.
Vulnerability Assessment Services
A Vulnerability Assessment identifies, quantifies and prioritizes the information security strengths and weaknesses of your organization’s computing environment from a technical perspective and provides a plan-of-action so that you can mitigate risk of serious consequences from any exploitable components that can lead to unauthorized access.
Regular vulnerability assessments demonstrate due diligence and is an important component of an organization’s overall risk management strategy. Vulnerability Assessments should be performed in the following conditions:
- During the design and development of any new IT system
- After any upgrades to your organization’s IT infrastructure or applications
- As part of your ongoing organizational due diligence
- As part of regular compliance reporting, such as PCI-DSS
An Alpen Technology Group Vulnerability Assessment will identify the key information assets of your organization, determine the vulnerabilities that threaten the security of those assets, provide recommendations to strengthen your security posture, and help mitigate risk allowing you to focus your IT resources more effectively.
