From vulnerability identification to vulnerability management

NorthX provides the technology, processes and services to effectively manage threats and vulnerabilities on your network.

75% of all cyberattacks exploit known vulnerabilities in their kill chain. When the organization is unaware of critical vulnerabilities, the door is left wide open for cybercriminals.

That is why intelligent management of technical vulnerabilities is a cornerstone in any effective cybersecurity program.

What is Vulnerability Management?

Known vulnerabilities with a known mitigation in standard software are frequently exploited in most cyberattacks. This is true for targeted attacks as well as random incidents such as ransomware and phishing incidents.

If vulnerabilities are discovered and remediated, the risk of compromise is dramatically reduced. This is where a successful vulnerability management program comes into the picture.

However, many organizations struggle with the implementation of an effective vulnerability management practice. From our experience, the most cited reasons are:

  • Organizations drown in vulnerabilities without an effective data structure and prioritization model
  • Assets not being known and/or managed by patching teams
  • Assumption that “up to date with Microsoft patches” remediates all vulnerabilities
  • Patch responsibility was not clear, especially above the operating system layer
  • No remediation validation checks are performed after a patch cycle

Our mission is to implement the technology, processes and practices required to address these challenges - ensuring that vulnerabilities are discovered, prioritized and remediated following a risk-based approach.

We help you succeed through our Consulting services, or by providing vulnerability management as a managed service, covering the entire lifecycle.
