Threat & Vulnerability Remediation


Find and fix vulnerabilities before they threaten your success.

Prioritizing Vulnerability Remediation: Knowledge is Power

If a chain is only as strong as its weakest link, the same maxim applies to your security system. Spotlighting the exploitable weaknesses present in your environment is a crucial component to keeping your security dynamic and adapting to threats. It’s a necessity that touches all aspects of your organization and requires an awareness of an evolving list of weaknesses, because you never know where or when a breach will happen. 


Optiv’s Vulnerability Remediation services guide you through minimizing exploitable security weaknesses by providing risk-based remediation assistance and data-driven metrics that tie into the overall security program. We take an adversarial perspective and a methodological approach to planning, advising and executing remediation of vulnerabilities within your unique environment.

What is Vulnerability Remediation?


Simply put, vulnerability remediation refers to repairing detected weaknesses in an organization’s infrastructure. The process may be as easy as patching software (which is often automated) or as complicated as a major rip-and-replace on a server farm.


Remember: every technical solution has vulnerabilities – or should be assumed to. Some represent an acceptable risk but many don’t. Some appliances – like printers – are low-risk, but others – like your laptop – are high-risk and timely remediation is essential. 


Remediation Use Cases:




(to help with assessment findings)




(to recover and restore operations)




(as part of vulnerability management)
