Domain’s Vulnerability Assessments
Have you checked your system’s vulnerability lately? Do you know what your system’s vulnerabilities are?
Vulnerability management is key to running a secure network. Domain Technology Group can keep your data and critical systems safe by assessing their vulnerability. We have extensive experience in data breach assessment and vulnerability analysis.
The first step in managing vulnerability is to assess security vulnerabilities in your organization’s systems and software. The best way to do this is through a thorough vulnerability scanning program.
Domain takes the following steps to effectively test a network’s vulnerabilities:
Conduct an inventory of the system: We identify every operating system, including software installed. This includes all connected devices: servers, desktops, laptops, virtual machines, firewalls, switches, and printers connected to a network.
Assign a level of importance to each component: How critical is it for the component in question to be secure?
Scan each component for threats and vulnerabilities, finding the weaknesses of the components: The scanner tests each component against a database of known vulnerabilities to discern whether any of the components are susceptible to any of these vulnerabilities.
Prioritize the most crucial of the identified vulnerabilities to quickly improve your network security stance: The list of vulnerabilities in a system can be long. In this case we prioritize the vulnerabilities and determine the level of danger that would be imposed on the organization if that vulnerability were to be successfully exploited. We also determine how easy would it be for a hacker to take advantage of that vulnerability and whether the existing security controls could reduce risk. The goal here is to mitigate risk quickly and effectively.
Once the scan has identified the vulnerabilities in the network, the level of risk for component is recorded. Domain then implements tried and true security measures and patch control. Our carefully designed strategies result in air tight cyber security that will maintain a safe and secured network for your organization.
Other assessments performed by Domain include penetration testing of specific system configurations and organizational processes and practices that could also compromise your system’s security. Watch for pen testing in an upcoming blog.
No one can guarantee complete and absolute safety. Safety depends on how well you lock the door a and windows to make your computing environment as safe as possible, making it difficult for the bad guys to gain access.
