Vulnerability Management – Exposure management platform
Managing cyber risks and exposures in a focused and effective manner
Over the years there has been a trending and moderate increase in the amount of exposures in organizations, but as of 2017 a sharp increase can be seen in CVE.
Today, most organizations do not use mechanisms to reduce and streamline the issue of UTM updates. Whether as a result of lack of awareness or for fear of giving up an update that could cause harm. In practice, there is almost no organization that manages to make updates in full. Most organizations are barely able to update the critical update categories. Some of the updates come as part of the manufacturer’s package – which increases the fear of an update as it may cause application failure.
There are basic products for scanning the network and producing a software version report and devices that require updating but this is a task that is very difficult to complete direction and the list is long, it has no priorities, no risk rating and no automation in the process.
The new model in the world of information security
The world of information security has undergone significant changes in recent years and is evolving as the level of risk sophistication increases. In the old model in the world of information security information protection was based on prevention. In contrast, the new model in information security is extensively aided by high and advanced data analytics and in accordance with the data analysis the protection of the information is carried out equally through 3 approaches: identifying threats, repairing vulnerabilities and prevention. It is estimated that by 2020 60% of the budget allocated to information security in organizations will be devoted to measures that enable rapid identification of threats alongside advanced technologies for dealing with identified threats.
The new information security model uses the comprehensive knowledge gained from data analysis to answer 3 basic questions that are essential in the world of information security. Each question focuses on a specific area of information security managed by a basket of related technologies and applications:
- Are there security vulnerabilities in the system? Managed by exposure management systems
- What is the risk level of the system? Managed by security incident detection and response systems.
- Is the system optimally secure? Managed by identity management systems and log management systems, along with control of IT systems at the level of information security.
Usually all the information needed to answer these critical questions is in the hands of information security managers, but a dedicated platform is required that will centralize the information, perform analysis based on AI and know how to draw conclusions and a list of operational tasks to implement.
Analyst Gartner estimates that by 2020 about 60% of the organizations’ IT budget will be allocated to tools and methodologies for immediate detection and response to UAV events. (Source: Gartner “Shift Cybersecurity Investment to Detection” dated 7 January 2016)
Nexpose in the cloud – InsightVM – Rapid7’s cyber risk management platform
With the Rapid7 platform, it is possible to obtain clarity and simple, clear and limited procedures for handling and managing exposures in real time. Rapid7’s Nexpose in the Cloud – InsightVM system makes it possible to turn the “forest” of information and warnings into clear and easy-to-implement answers and procedures in a way that will reduce the risks to the organization by 80% and allow the business to develop safely.
Vulnerability Management – A cyber risk management and exposure management system
Rapid7’s Nexpose cloud, or InsightVM, is a Vulnerability Management system that can be used to scan every component and component of an enterprise computing and communications system with an IP address, in order to diagnose threats and intrusions in the organization. The platform provides a snapshot and in addition also offers appropriate solutions to eradicate the weaknesses and threats that have been exposed.
