New vulnerabilities appear every day due to flaws in software, faulty configuration of applications and IT gear, and possible human error. A comprehensive vulnerability management program needs to be incorporated that requires identification, detection and removal of vulnerabilities.
RISIMS conduct vulnerability assessments as a security practice to proactively prevent the exploitation of IT vulnerabilities that exist within an organization. The expected result is to reduce the time and money spent dealing with vulnerabilities and exploitation of those vulnerabilities. Proactively managing vulnerabilities of systems will reduce the potential for exploitation and involve considerably less time and effort than responding after exploitation has occurred. Vulnerability assessments are often confused with penetration testing. Think of vulnerability assessments as a first step in identifying potential external or internal risks to your applications and networks.
Vulnerability assessment deliverables include comprehensive reporting detailing exposures and associated risks together with advice from our security experts on the recommended solutions to address the identified vulnerabilities.
