Comtact: Remain Always On, Always Secure

Top 10 Vulnerability Management Consulting/Service Companies in UK - 2020

While the previous decade was all about digitisation and adapting to its patterns, the new decade brings with itself new sets of challenges, opportunities, and strategies to combat the hurdles that the disruptive technologies brought in. Recent surveys have revealed that organisations are under immense pressure to implement effective vulnerability and patch management practices to protect their systems from breaches. Also, the waves of digital transformation trends such as cloud migration and enterprise mobility have significantly deepened the depth of attack. This calls for improved vulnerability detection, prevention, and mitigation practices. Studies reveal that none of the enterprises, be it tech giants such as Google, Microsoft, and Apple, or emerging players have been able to escape the wrath of vulnerability.

While vulnerabilities are not a recent concept, most organisations are sceptical about addressing it. Reasons can be multiple–lack of awareness regarding factors causing breaches, or organisational silos and turf wars, or even financial constraints. However, considering the threats that vulnerabilities pose to systems, enterprises today are choosing threat-centric models over legacy systems like the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS). Not only does the imminent-model predict potential attackers and takes priority-based actions, but also overcomes the shortcomings of the CVSS systems that include delayed results, inaccurate patches, gradual risk reduction, and others. Also, enterprises are shifting their focus from remote exploitation and scanning techniques to agile, agent-based check for accurate results.

In the current scenario, companies are upgrading their practices such as change control and are running regular scans and assessments to ensure top-notch security for its data. Apart from conducting regular penetration testing, these organisations are implementing improved security scanning service that automatically identifies attack surfaces on web applications. The scanner detects threats, generates proof of exploit in a read-only format and highlights the impact of the vulnerabilities on the web application. Apart from saving time, these automated services also lower down the operational cost.

Additionally, patching of systems and software immediately after updating the OS will protect the networks against malicious activities. Also, tech firms are refreshing their system and discarding old programs that slow down operations.
