What is threat and vulnerability management?

Threat and vulnerability management is a proactive way to protect your organization's devices and data. It helps you identify vulnerabilities and check if your security settings are weak. By using this approach, you can fix any weaknesses before they become a security breach.

The need for remote threat and vulnerability management tool

The COVID-19 pandemic has forced organizations to shift to remote work, but it has also increased security risks. With more employees working remotely, the potential for cyberattacks has grown.

On top of that, the discovery of zero-day vulnerabilities in popular remote collaboration tools has created panic. It's crucial for organizations to address these cybersecurity challenges and prepare for a future where remote work is the norm. Ensuring a safe work-from-home experience requires a secure IT infrastructure.

Patch remotely without impairing end-user productivity

  • Don't let untimely patching routines interrupt C-level executives’ important video calls. Instead, have patches deployed to specific users during system startup to ensure their OSs and applications remain current without any interruptions.
  • Bid adieu to bottlenecking due to limited bandwidth in VPN gateways. Have your remote clients download the essential patches from trusted vendors directly without having to wait to log on to your network via VPN.
  • Don't want to drive your remote users crazy with repeated pop-ups every five minutes? Give them the flexibility to postpone patch deployments and subsequent reboots, and delay notifications until a time they choose.
  • While giving users the flexibility to postpone patches and reboots, you can also ensure they're only postponed for so long by implementing a time limit for when deployment will happen automatically.
  • Configure flexible schedules for patch deployment, and customize reboots to happen only on weekends to avoid irritating your remote employees.

Ensure a secure foundation for your remote systems and servers

Don't assume your network is safe just because you've patched your software. Attackers can still exploit overlooked security settings to infiltrate your systems. When working remotely, it's crucial to test your defenses thoroughly and fix any misconfigurations. Vulnerability Manager Plus offers a variety of security configuration assessments to:

  • Ensure antivirus is in place, enabled, and up-to-date with the latest definition files. If not, you can deploy the latest definitions to target machines in a single click.
  • Monitor the ports in use and the processes running on them, and identify unintended ports that may have been activated by malware or unknown applications.
  • Put web server misconfigurations into context, and gain remediation details to harden your web servers.
  • Prevent brute-force attacks by enforcing a combination of stringent password policies and account lockout policies.
  • Identify the assets in which BitLocker encryption is disabled.
  • Ensure connections are blocked in the firewall to the NetBIOS trio, the infamous WannaCry abettor port 445, and other vulnerable ports that allow unauthorized and unintended actions.
