Compliance And Security Vulnerability
Vulnerability is any weakness or defect that could cause a threat to the design or application of a system or device. There are two main areas to address to eliminate security vulnerabilities: configuration settings and software errors (patch) in the program and operating system files. Typically, a software upgrade or program/operating system configuration update (remediation) or a configuration change is required to eliminate security vulnerabilities.
Hardening is equally necessary for servers and network devices (switches, firewalls). Also, PCI DSS, SOX, HIPAA etc. If you are subject to a formal safety standard, then the device hardening will be a mandatory requirement. Any uncontrolled changes to a device may adversely affect the security status and may cause your company to be exposed to security threats.
Therefore, the security vulnerabilities of all servers and active devices should be checked periodically and corrected with patches and configuration changes. Vulnerability scanning and compliance with security standards have become necessary in both existing and new infrastructure products. To address this requirement, vulnerability and patch checks at certain periods should be done with competent solutions, and, where necessary, with fast and dynamic updates to ensure that your systems become secure.
In recent years, cyber attacks once again reveal the importance of the concept of “security”. When re-structuring a system, it is necessary to protect existing systems from external and internal attacks. Security is a process starting from the network layer to the server firmware, server platform, and 3rd party applications. At this point, the solution enables the OS, server, platform and network devices to be secured in different layers. It allows you to eliminate security holes by checking Network devices, servers, firmware updates, upgrades, OS updates, OS (Windows, Linux, Unix) patch management, vulnerabilities of PCI-DSS, Sox, and Cobit, and of Database Middleware’s patch and PCI-DSS.
