VulnerabilityManagement Services Minimize Exploitable Security Weaknesses Across Your Operations Current State VM Methodology Service Levels Optiv Advantage Additional Information Contact Us Minimize Exploitable Security Weaknesses Across Your Operating Environment New vulnerabilities in your IT ecosystem arise every day. But not all vulnerabilities are created equal. Most exploited vulnerabilities are already known by security and IT professionals at the time of the incident. Most companies adopt a reactive posture, attempting to stamp out vulnerabilities as soon as they’re discovered. But this “Whack-A-Mole” approach just leaves your security teams overworked, frustrated and perpetually behind. Instead of trying to patch everything, you need to focus on those vulnerabilities that present the greatest risk to your organization. That means analyzing and prioritizing those vulnerabilities based on risk-based remediation and data-driven metrics tied to your business objectives to minimize unnecessary patching and downtime. Image Not all vulnerabilities are created equal Known Vulnerabilities Threaten Your Organization’s Security Organizations will always need proactive defenses — but vulnerabilities with known fixes are still the source for a significant number of breaches. With Optiv, you’ll rely on a vulnerability management process built to support continuous improvement. You begin with discovery to analyze your current state and identify critical data, assets, and objectives to set a clear baseline. Then you’ll prioritize Optiv recommendations for triage and program execution. Based on vulnerabilities you’ve prioritized, your Optiv team will execute the appropriate services for remediation. The final phase validates progress and directly compares results against your established baseline. You’ll get clear, consolidated reports that outline revised recommendations and lessons learned. This lets you continually tweak your vulnerability management program for constant, incremental improvements. Image Vulnerability Management Service Method Optiv Vulnerability Management Services are designed to ensure your mitigation processes constantly improve. Here is a breakdown of the Optiv methodology. Discover Prioritize Remediate Validate Analyze Your Current State Current-state analysis is a critical foundation for vulnerability management. In the discovery phase, you’ll identify important data, assets, and owners to set a baseline. Current vulnerability state Relevant processes Environmental factors Key stakeholders and contacts Strengths and areas for change Prioritize recommendations for execution The ability to prioritize your findings is a core feature of effective vulnerability management. Each discovered vulnerability presents a remediation cost, both in time and risk. In this phase, you’ll prioritize next steps based on a combination of factors like criticality of the asset, vulnerability type, and threat intelligence so you know where to focus your efforts first. Process recommendations Triage of vulnerabilities Roadmap for program execution Execute the right remediation services for remediation This phase is focused on the recommendations and roadmap delivered in previous phase. You choose which remediation services you’d like Optiv to execute. Advice on recommendations Remediation guidance Client education Root-cause analysis Status reporting throughout program execution Compare results against expectations The last phase is validation, which allows you and your Optiv team to ensure that the corrective action taken succeeded, that the results met expectations, and that suggestions for future program improvements are documented.
