Vulnerability management. Detecting weaknesses in your IT networks before they are exploited.

Managing cyber risks is an essential task for any organisation and can be an ongoing and full-time requirement. As the cyber threat environment continues to grow and become more complex, and remote working becomes more of a norm, companies need to stay vigilant and protect their data by limiting their risk and exposure. However, constantly monitoring your business for cyber threats can be costly and time consuming, not to mention difficult if you don’t know where to look.

That’s where we can help.

Net Technical Solutions has teamed up with leading cybersecurity solutions company Qualys to help protect your organisation and keep it secure.

The Qualys Cloud Platform and its integrated suite of IT security and compliance solutions provides organisations of all sizes with a global view of their IT security solutions. The Qualys suite of products has different options available, including External, Internal and Endpoint Scanning. All these tools can be used to proactively Locate, Identify, and Assess vulnerabilities or weaknesses in your IT network so that they can be prioritised and corrected before they are targeted and exploited by attackers.

What is Vulnerability Management?

Vulnerability Management is a cloud-based solution that detects weaknesses on all your network assets including servers, workstations, printers, and other network devices such as routers, switches and firewalls. In fact, using software agents Qualys can assess any device that has an IP address, including external web applications. Even those business devices that are only occasionally connected to your network or the Internet, such as those used by part-time or remote working staff, can be scanned for vulnerabilities.

Qualys works by providing automated scanning - crawling and testing to identify any vulnerabilities in your IT network. This gives you immediate, comprehensive visibility into where your IT systems might be vulnerable to the latest cyberthreats and how to protect them. It therefore helps you to continuously secure your IT infrastructure and comply with internal policies and external regulations.

How would this work?

With Qualys we can check your servers, computers, and other devices for vulnerabilities on a continual, proactive basis and help you identify and fix them. Qualys keeps track of any security issues it finds for each system and provides you with graphical reports that tell you which patches to use on which systems. This ensures you get the optimum security improvements and an audit trail on steps you have taken to secure your business.

Qualys provides a three-step cycle to IT security that continuously monitors the cyber threat landscape, enables quick response and measures the metrics that your company leadership team cares about.
