Nothing can be as terrorizing as a Zero-day vulnerability residing in your network endpoints. Imagine your business critical systems having a vulnerability that has been exploited in the wild, but you don't have a patch to fix it. Attackers get a bit of leeway to tamper with sensitive data, execute arbitrary codes and disclose confidential information, while you wait for the vendor to come up with a fix. In such cases, you can either shutdown/isolate the affected machines from the network and face inevitable downtime, or you can do nothing and live in a fear of being exploited until a patch is available. Neither of them would feel appealing to an enterprise operating at scale. Since, it not only deals with company's revenue and profit but also with it's reputation and customer experience. Fortunately, Vulnerability Manager Plus offers a way out of this dilemma.
Vulnerability Manager Plus offers pre-built, tested scripts to mitigate Zero-day vulnerabilities like Wannacry Ransomware, Meltdown and Spectre, and Petya. These scripts help secure your endpoints by enforcing configuration hardening, altering registry values, closing vulnerable ports, thereby mitigating the likelihood of exploit.
Vulnerability Manager Plus monitors your network constantly for Zero-day vulnerabilities and helps you track down the machines that are affected by Zero-day vulnerabilities from the dashboard. Once they are identified, you can deploy scripts directly from the centralized console, thereby saving time and effort.
Get instant notifications on patches as soon as they are released, deploy scripts if you wish to revert to previous state and deploy patches promptly to wipe out the vulnerabilities from your endpoints.
The wide spread Wannacry Ransomware attack wreaked havoc in thousands of organizations before Microsoft came up with a fix. However, the network endpoints could have been safeguarded from the spread of Wannacry Ransomware attack if SMB V1 was disabled and the firewall rule was set to block port 445. Lack of awareness and inability to enforce these security changes across the entire network made most of the organizations to fall prey to the Wannacry Ransomware. You can easily overcome these obstacles and secure your network from Zero-day vulnerabilities if you have Vulnerability manager Plus in place.
If your current vulnerability management tool relies only on software vendors to manage Zero-day vulnerabilities and leaves you network wide open to attackers, it's high time you start looking for a tool that offers alternative solutions to help secure your network.
