Gap Analysis and Vulnerability Management

As malware and hackers become more sophisticated, the corresponding security solutions needed to combat these threats are becoming more complex and need to be continually updated.  The potential for gaps and vulnerability is increasing.

Organisations are increasingly asking – are we safe?  The answer to this question requires process, policy, proof.  Common, objective methods of ‘proof’ include ASD Maturity level, the NIST Framework, ISO 27001 certification and PCI DSS compliance.

Kytec can work with you to perform a gap analysis for your security infrastructure where key business flows are determined, along with the corresponding ‘IT journey’ – gaps in capability and functionality are then identified.  The process consists of information gathering and the preparation of a comprehensive report, which prioritises critical issues and corresponding recommendations.

The first critical step in vulnerability management is visibility

Once the required functionality and capability are defined, a solution consisting of one or more products will be proposed.  A single vendor solution minimises the potential for gaps and vulnerability and ensures products align to an overall architecture. It also means threat intelligence can be shared across all elements of the solution.

But IT security is not ‘set and forget’ – new threats are constantly emerging and ageing hardware and software represent opportunities for hackers who have sophisticated tools to identify and take advantage of any weakness in your infrastructure.  

IT and Security Managers are usually consumed by day-to-day problems and may not be applying patches in a timely manner or upgrading hardware, so vulnerability can be increasing daily.  

Using a cloud solution from Qualys, Kytec can constantly monitor your entire environment and create a real time inventory of all your IT assets:  end points, dynamic cloud environments, switches and firewalls; identify and priorities all vulnerability, expiring certificates and automatically apply patches and quarantine specific assets.  The first critical step in vulnerability management is visibility. Real time alerts ensure that corrective action is taken quickly.

Understanding gaps and vulnerability is the critical first step in risk management.

If we decide how we want to work to be productive and upskill to take advantage of new collaboration tools, we will improve productivity, creativity and business results. As I sat down to watch the keynote presentation at Cisco WebexONE today, the global conference for digital collaboration, I was expecting to hear about amazing new […]

Discussion about new ways of working, brought about by COVID, has pretty much been done to death. We get it; and it’s happening. Ironically, it is being driven my management and staff because the flexible mix of working from the office and working from home is increasing productivity for the business and flexibility for staff. So, the question […]

All businesses understand how important customers are. After all, why else would we say the customer is always right? Knowing that your customer’s matter is entirely different from knowing how to actually give your customers the experience they crave. While having a good product and smart services is important, you always have to build customer […]
