Assessing risks that are prevalent within the systems and network of an organization is crucial. This is exactly when a secure configuration assessment is performed. The assessment provides a comprehensive analysis of potential vulnerabilities and misconfigurations in systems and applications. It is an audit that helps identify vulnerabilities and helps in building a defense against sophisticated and targeted attacks where hackers gain access to privileged systems and data. A secure configuration assessment checks every network and systems configuration and setup parameters for vulnerabilities that a hacker may exploit to gain access. This could include scanning operating systems, networks, and databases. The assessment gives you an insight into your current security posture and also provides a complete overview of access controls, services, and applications running on critical systems, and identifies missing security patches.
We scan your IT environment to discover all network devices, operating systems, databases, firewalls, etc., and a wide range of other platforms.
Our team identifies assets and prioritize them based on their criticality. It helps rapidly and accurately map the assets to its Asset Groups as per business units.
We assess the configuration of your core infrastructure such as Firewall security matrix, Database security parameters, HPUX/AIX/Linux OS security configuration, Audit trails, Group policies, DLP matrix, IDS/IPS configuration, etc.
Our team performs Risk Classification to identify vulnerabilities and make informed decisions on resource allocation and prioritize immediate remediation for the most critical ones.
Our team will support you and help you understand the kind of vulnerabilities and provide relevant strategies for remediation.
When your organization has concerns about the potential vulnerabilities and misconfigurations on a device of the current IT Infrastructure, they perform a Secure Configuration Assessment.
Automated Commercial tools, internally developed scripts, and even manual checks using various frameworks such as CIS, NIST, SANS, etc are used for Secure Configuration Assessment.
Depending on the criticality and risk factors, these findings may need to be closed in a timeframe from 1 week to 3 months.
3 months to one year depending on the asset and the dictates of the Regulatory / Statutory body.
