Vulnerability & Patch Management
Vulnerability and patch management is an upbeat way to take control of your security management. You can reduce your organization’s vulnerability to cyber attacks by following the process listed below:
- Identifying loopholes, weaknesses, and risk-areas in your security system by using using multi-pronged approaches, such as network scans, firewall logs, penetration tests, and automated scans.
- Classifying susceptibilities by carrying out analysis of the results of penetration tests, firewall logs, and network scans. This lets us catch any abnormalities, malware, and other risky events.
- Checking vulnerabilities by determining whether the weaknesses in servers, apps, network, devices, and other systems could be potentially exploited.
- Preventing the security risks by taking prompt actions, which may even include taking all the infected components offline.
- Patching vulnerabilities by making appropriate fixes to the affected systems. This may involve working with the vendors of specific software and/or hardware. This process can also be automated by using patch management kit.
- In the end, our experts will run patching test to check whether the remedies have worked.
SSO and Multi-Factor Authentication
The number of high profile security breaches is rising as businesses increasingly go online. Today, Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) and SSO have become the first line of defense for organizations against unauthorized access to business information and critical business assets.
If you’re using only simple passwords to access to your systems, your business is at high risk. Attackers are using sophisticated techniques to hack into systems. As such, you need double protection. You must make your security surefire with a policy-based access management system. Also, implement a secure and reliable sign-in and password reset mechanism by implementing a multi-factor authentication mechanism based on protocols like user geography and freedom level and the app being used.
You can further boost your security through the use of a foolproof, single sign-on (SSO) feature. The SSO lets users securely access the apps from different devices. With the SSO, users will be required to gain access to the apps and devices with a single, one-time username and password. Your security policy will govern the whole process.
Remember, however, that even though the SSO provides enhanced user experience, a weaker SSO can increase your security risks. To minimize the risks, carefully implement every facet of the SSO along with identity governance. Combine the SSO and two-factor authentication to enhance security.
