Vulnerability Management

Detect and mitigate security vulnerabilities before they can be exploited. Deploy patches from within the CYRISMA platform

Vulnerability management covers the complete cycle of discovering, classifying, analyzing and mitigating security vulnerabilities in an organization’s IT environment, with the end goal of closing security gaps and reducing cyber risk. In a constantly evolving digital landscape, new vulnerabilities and threats emerge every day. Threat actors have been known to start exploiting new vulnerabilities within hours of their publication by vendors. This means that for a vulnerability management program to be really successful, scanning for vulnerabilities needs to be an ongoing process so new threats can be found and removed before they can be exploited by cybercriminals.

CYRISMA’s feature-rich risk management platform comes with a powerful vulnerability scanner with options to run both internal and external scans. Users can also patch third-party Windows-based applications from within the platform. Designed especially for managed service providers and large IT and security teams, CYRISMA gives organizations complete visibility into the vulnerabilities in network-connected devices, systems and web applications, and allows them to easily triage these vulnerabilities based on severity levels, create mitigation plans, and patch systems quickly.

Internal and External Scan Options

You can use the CYRISMA platform to run both internal and external vulnerability scans. External scans can help you detect vulnerabilities in internet-exposed systems and manage your external attack surface that can be seen by an external actor looking for a way into your internal network. With internal scans, you can detect the vulnerabilities present within your organization’s or your client’s internal network. Internal vulnerabilities are often neglected by organizations, but they are as important to detect and root out as externally exposed vulnerabilities to prevent lateral movement and privilege escalation by threat actors who manage to get past perimeter defenses. CYRISMA’s internal scans can be executed in both authenticated and unauthenticated modes. With this degree of control, you can see exactly what an attacker would see depending on the attack stage or access level.

With CYRISMA, you can not only find hidden vulnerabilities in your customers’ environments, but also see the root cause of these vulnerabilities, find which assets and software they affect, and create and execute mitigation plans based on the detailed remediation options included in the scan results. CYRISMA simplifies vulnerability management by providing security practitioners with all the information and detailed analysis they need to take appropriate steps to keep networks and systems secure.

Options for Agentless and Agent-based Scans

Additionally, you can choose to run either agentless scans on systems connected to internal enterprise networks using a single sensor, or agent-based scans on systems and devices used by remote employees. With agent-based scans, an agent or sensor needs to be installed on an individual asset (target) for the scan to be performed. This is ideal for assets in remote locations or devices being used by a geographically dispersed workforce. Agentless scans, on the other hand, do not need sensors to be installed on individual devices and can be executed using a single central agent/sensor. These are ideal for internal network-connected assets. Options for agentless and agent-based scans give you the best of both worlds, where you can find and mitigate critical vulnerabilities across computing environments, networks and work locations.

The Power of CYRISMA

Optimize Cyber Risk Management with our multi-feature SaaS platform

CYRISMA allows you to Discover, Understand, Mitigate, and Manage cyber risk with efficiency and speed

1. Discover

Run easy-to-set up, quick scans to discover vulnerabilities and zero-day risks against both identified and unidentified targets and shadow IT. Map vulnerabilities to affected assets and applications to get a complete picture of your attack surface.

2. Understand

Easily analyze and triage identified vulnerabilities based on assigned severity levels and possible business impact, and find the root cause of vulnerabilities for better-informed remediation.

3. Mitigate

Mitigate vulnerabilities in a timely fashion. Deploy software updates and patches & use CYRISMA’s internal mitigation engine to assign mitigation actions to designated individuals responsible for different types of assets i.e. AD server, workstations, web servers, DB servers, etc.

4. Manage

Manage your risk landscape by setting up regular vulnerability scans to make sure that you find new vulnerabilities early, and reduce your risk exposure to a tolerable level.
