Develop a Comprehensive Cybersecurity Risk Management Strategy, Starting with Vulnerability Management

By Fortra's Digital Defense

Layered Cybersecurity: A Must For Any Organization

Protecting your company, your clients, and yourself requires a strong, comprehensive cybersecurity program that accommodates the vast and evolving digital landscape. Having the right layered security strategy in place ensures you’re protecting the whole of your business, not just select areas.

Understanding the Changing Threat Landscape

Cyber threats are constantly changing, that’s nothing new, but the accelerated pace in recent years has caught many organizations off-guard and unprepared. The expanded use of the cloud and widening attack surfaces  challenge companies to secure a rapidly increasing array of endpoints. Additionally, cyberattackers attempt to stay one step ahead of maturing security measures by creating more automated, sophisticated, and dangerous threats.*

Protecting your organization

We’re facing an unprecedented time in cybersecurity as the number and damage-potential of attacks grows each day. Your business cannot afford to haphazardly implement cybersecurity protocols, leaving security gaps in your digital ecosystem. It’s time to set up a layered security program that includes offensive security measures including vulnerability scanning, penetration testing, and adversary simulation. As you assemble the solutions needed for this proactive approach, it’s important to work with trusted vendors who are experts in the space, ones who specialize in offensive security tactics, such as Digital Defense, rather than just dabbling in them on the side.

“Top Notch Vulnerability and Penetration Testing"

Digital Defense has been great so far with both vulnerability and penetration scanning and testing. The reports are very easy to decipher, scanning has been super smooth, and their support has been quick to respond and helpful with each step in the process.” - Eric T

Vulnerability Management and Offensive Security?

A vulnerability management (VM) program is a key component of offensive security measures. Beyond  just assessing your vulnerabilities, it uses an ongoing process of scanning and analysis tactics combined with threat intelligence to  identify, evaluate, report, and prioritize vulnerabilities in your network and applications.

Vulnerability management plays a vital role in protecting your business from threats. With changing digital landscapes, being prepared for the unexpected can save you time, money, and headaches down the road. With Digital Defense’s top-rated vulnerability management tool, Fortra Vulnerability Management, organizations can identify vulnerabilities, and audit, label, and track progress on recommended fixes. Additionally, Fortra VM's easy-to-use solutions, support, and professional services make it simple and straightforward to safeguard your organization and data and mitigate the risk before it’s too late.

“FVM is a great tool to identify any weaknesses in our IT network infrastructure. It provides a detailed report of all vulnerabilities detected and ranks them based on risk level. It also provides an overall GPA for internal network security and external network security. Overall they provide excellent information to work with to close up any gaps!” - Executive Sponsor in Consumer Goods

“We got a white-glove treatment from a representative from Digital Defense. They walked us through setting up both the internal and external security scans on our network. Once a quarter, we get a detailed report of every device internally. Not only will it list the vulnerability that needs to be remediated, but in most cases, it will give detailed instructions on how to remediate it. This little extra in the report saves a lot of time in researching when trying to remediate issues in a large network.”  - Consultant, Electrical/Electronic Manufacturing
