VULNERABILITY SCANNING

WHAT IS VULNERABILITY SCANNING?

We utilize diagnostic tools that monitor and prevent social engineering threats. We detect whether your executives are victims of social media impersonation; and determine if hackers are using your domain name to hack into employee email. We monitor your network for behavioral anomalies and notify you to mitigate those risks.

Cynexlink Cyber Security Identiying Vulnerabilities

Identifying Vulnerabilities

Vulnerability scanners search your network for laptops, desktops, virtual and physical servers, databases, firewalls, switches, printers, and anything else that might be running on the network. Once identified, their systems are examined to determine unique characteristics like operating systems, open ports, software, users, file structures, and system configurations. The compiled data is then compared to a database of publicly known vulnerabilities to evaluate your system’s risks.

Evaluating Vulnerabilities

Once identified, vulnerabilities are evaluated and processed according to the established risk management plan. Using universally accepted rating systems like the Common Vulnerabilty Scoring System (CVSS), vulnerabilities are given risk scores to aid in determining priority. However, some risks can be outside the parameters of commonly-used rating systems.

Treating Vulnerabilities

Our Security Services Vulnerability Management Plan predetermines recommended vulnerability remediation solutions. On occasion when predetermined solutions do not represent the most effective repair, our team will collaborate with the organization’s owners, security team, and system administrators to establish a course of action. Because of the vast variety of possible vulnerabilities, solutions can be as simple as using widely-distributed software patches, or replacing all the physical servers operating within a network.

Reporting Vulnerabilities

Over time, by consistently performing vulnerability assessments, organizations can evaluate the speed and effectiveness of their vulnerability management programs. Our vulnerability management solution system offers customizable visual vulnerability scan reporting and exports, managed within customizable dashboards. These customizations enable IT teams to streamline processes, making it easier and faster to identify threats and implement remediation; Vulnerability trends can be more easily tracked, and compliance with regulatory requirements is simplified.

COMPLIANCE & REPORTING

Cynexlink Cyber Security Business-Compliance

We Keep Your Business in Compliance

Certain regulated businesses like financial, healthcare, or governmental agencies are required to document and report the methods by which client and customer data is obtained and stored securely. Failing to do so can translate into fines and reputational risk for your organization. We can fulfill governmental reporting requirements for you and relieve your staff from the burden of complicated and timely reporting.

We Handle Reporting Requirements

To satisfy governmental compliance, multiple IT security products must be implemented and monitored. Data from multiple IT systems must be compiled into one view or a set of reports so managers and auditors can verify the effectiveness of the IT security controls. We can assist in creating and maintaining reports that meet even the most stringent requirements of the newest widely-adopted standards such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, GDPR, among others.
