Vulnerability Management is a managed security service provided by ISSP SOC, designed to address the information security vulnerability at the IT system of an organization.
This service functions through a regular scanning of network assets and end-user workstations to identify known vulnerabilities in network services, operating systems, or web applications.
Concentrate your efforts on the most vulnerable areas within your organization's network
Customizable Coverage: Tailor the scanning scope to fit your needs, from selective external scans to a comprehensive examination of your entire infrastructure, both inside and out.
Tailored Reports: Receive reports that contain the specific information you require.
Flexible Scanning Options: Easily choose scanning options, such as system load, scheduling, and setting limitations, to align with your preferences.
Support for Challenging Devices: For devices that are difficult to scan, like remote users and distributed offices, specialized agents can be installed to collect vital data on the operating system, installed applications, registry sections, processes, and system configurations.
Benefit from expert guidance and support in configuring scans and interpreting results.
Types of Scanning
The service can encompass all of the organization's network assets, including the external perimeter, internal corporate networks, and distributed assets such as remote employee workstations.
The frequency and types of scans are determined based on the criticality of assets or specific network segments.
Scanning of external (public) services and applications via the Internet.
Scanning of the internal corporate network's perimeter through an internally deployed scanning module.
Scanning of remote workstations or servers through a deployed scanning agent.
Support for Challenging Devices:
For devices that are difficult to scan, like remote users and distributed offices, specialized agents can be installed to collect vital data on the operating system, installed applications, registry sections, processes, and system configurations.
Connection Setup and Core Components
Access to this service is established through the configuration of scanning tasks for the customer's external perimeter, the deployment of agents for customer workstations/servers that support installation on Windows, Linux, MacOS operating systems, and direct interaction with the scanning management platform.
To use this service, ISSP SOC sets up scanning tasks for your organization's external perimeter by deploying agents for customer workstations/servers, which work with Windows, Linux, and MacOS. These tools directly interact with the Vulnerability assessment platform.
Additionally, a scanning module is deployed within the customer's infrastructure to scan the internal perimeter, if applicable. Interaction among all system components occurs via a secure HTTPS protocol.
In-depth vulnerability assessment is available if the 'Managed Penetration Testing' service is provided.

What is the Penetration Testing?A Penetration Test also known as a Pentest is a professional cybersecurity assessment that emulates the attacker's technics in compromising the target infrastructure. By holding a Pentest, you would practically define the weakest points of your infrastructure and be equipped with actionable information on mitigating discovered vulnerabilities and threats. Today, Pentest is considered to be one of the universal type of cybersecurity assessments, which proofs to third-parties that you care about your security.
How do I know that I need a Pentest?Top three reasons to start planning a Pentest: 1) If you have never carried out a Pentest or had one a long time ago, there are no doubts that it would be beneficial to plan an assessment now. 2) Most regulators and compliance standards in cybersecurity require to have a Pentest at least on the annual basis 3) If you have just made significant changes in your IT infrastructure, the vulnerability landscape should have significantly changed and you should update your awareness
How to define the cost per Pentest engagement?Once you defined that you need a Pentest, you would already know the key drivers and infrastructure elements a Pentester should focus on. A qualitative Pentest engagement is always a manually handcrafted piece of work, which utilizes tens and hundreds of special tools and services to maximize the vulnerability detection rate. Essentially, the cost structure for the Pentest is assembled from the certified ethical hacker's efforts and the tools, which are used for the particular engagement. For Enterprises the rule of thumb is that a Pentest engagement during the year shall not exceed 10% of the IT budget, while for SMEs these costs could be more significant compared to usual spending for IT. The best way to define the exact cost is to define the goals and develop a technical scope jointly with a Penetration Testing team of your choice.
What You Get in the Report?Your penetration testing report will contain: An Executive Summary for key decision-makers with no technical background, containing high-level results and what needs to be fixed immediately A Technical Summary with specific findings A description of successful attack vectors, demonstrating what vulnerabilities were exploited (and how) to penetrate the infrastructure Recommendations for remediation and risk management
When you need penetration testing?You had a breach, recovered, and now want to outline other possible attack scenarios You are about to release a major upgrade to your web app or you have developed your first mobile app and are about to launch it on the App Store or Google Play Store Your IT infrastructure was heavily rebuilt after you switched to working from home and needs to be assessed To win a deal, your client/partner/investor demands that you demonstrate cybersecurity compliance A regulator requests that you regularly perform pentesting Your most recent pentests were all delivered by your current service provider, so it’s a good time to change the attacker’s view and double-check previous results You want to start taking care of cybersecurity, and pentesting is an easy way to start
