Find all known vulnerabilities that may be threatening your IT environment by leveraging the NIST Vulnerability Database.
Monitor your environment’s security stance with an always up-to-date list of vulnerabilities as you mitigate the risk to your assets.
Prioritize which vulnerabilities need your attention fist based on their CVSS score and the number of affected devices.
Keeping an IT environment safe and secure is one of the hardest challenges IT teams face. As networks become larger and more complex, it gets harder to keep track of every single device in your network and which vulnerabilities may be a threat to each of them. And yet it is one of the most important things to be aware of. One update or one patch missed on one device can put your entire network at risk of a cyberattack.
Leverage vulnerability information from the NIST catalog connected to your assets and benefit from vulnerability insights. Gain visibility of assets that have known vulnerabilities along with a severity indicator, and benefit from faster triage and incident response.
Each of these vulnerabilities is ranked by severity based on its CVSS score and includes a list of all at-risk devices. A short summary of the vulnerability is included, as well as links to official security advisories in case you need more information. The customizable view of the vulnerability list lets you prioritize the information that is most relevant to you. Accurately assess the threat level and prioritize where your intervention is needed the most.
The first step to keeping your network safe is to gain full visibility across your entire IT estate. As Lansweeper continually scans all devices on your network, including their OS and software information, it can easily check all installed versions against any known vulnerabilities. Any devices that are lacking security patches that could leave them exposed will be listed in the Risk Insights. This allows you to quickly take action before the vulnerability can be exploited.
In addition to the Risk Insights, the Lansweeper team also creates custom reports for high-profile vulnerabilities or known issues as well as for Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday updates. These reports can be found in the Report Library. You can also sign up for the Vulnerability Updates newsletter or our monthly Patch Tuesday newslettersto receive these updates as they come out.
Keeping everything patched and up-to-date is a crucial step in keeping your network secure, which is why it is of crucial importance to keep track of assets that have gone end of life. These assets will no longer receive updates or patches, so any existing vulnerabilities will not get fixed. Lansweeper Cloud lets you keep track of your OS lifecycle so you can stay on the lookout for any that are about to go or have gone end-of-life. This way you can ensure the security of your network by making sure that your machines are running a supported and regularly updated OS.
Many industry-leading security frameworks, such as ISO, NIST, and CIS, list vulnerability detection and risk assessment as critical steps in ensuring the safety of your IT environment. Identifying vulnerabilities and at-risk assets in your network plays a crucial role in protecting yourself against cybersecurity attacks.
