Infrastructure Security solution dubai

Critical infrastructures have naturally come to utilise Information Technology as a key component that connects them across multiple levels as this capability has become more and more available. As a result, infrastructure systems have become highly interconnected, and interdependent. Intrusions and disruptions in one infrastructure might provoke unexpected failures in others, which makes handling interdependencies a key concern. To ensure Infrastructure Security, it is critical to be aware of all assets within the infrastructure and the vulnerabilities inherent within the said assets. Infrastructure components would cover a wide range of OS, applications and protocols including but not limited to:

  • Windows
  • Linux
  • Networking devices
  • Mobile devices
  • Databases
  • Web Applications
  • SCADA Devices
  • Out of the box applications such as Microsoft Office applications, Adobe, etc.

Infrastructure Security processes

  • Vulnerability Management program to complete Network Vulnerability Scanning that can perform:
    • Asset Discovery: A security maxim that is very relevant here is “You can’t secure what you are not aware of” which makes Asset Discovery a critical factor in the Vulnerability Management process.
    • Vulnerability Discovery: The Vulnerability Discovery process is completely dependent on the tool used and it is critical to find a tool that can not only find vulnerabilities based on published CVEs but also vulnerabilities that may be the result of configurations.
    • Risk Exposure: Not all vulnerabilities discovered would result in exploitable risks, vulnerabilities can be mitigated via third-party tools installed in the network or the hosts, therefore it is always a challenge for a Vulnerability Management program to build in a process to validate vulnerabilities that may present risks.
    • Risk Prioritization: The Vulnerability Management Lifecycle is a continuous process that requires IT personnel to complete the remediation process. However, it may take a long time to remediate the discovered vulnerabilities. Therefore, Risk Prioritization would ensure efficient use of your IT personnel resources.
    • Risk Remediation: This can be a very time-consuming process, so having your Vulnerability Scanning tool being able to present Risk Remediation information is available for all vulnerabilities and presented in reports as simple step-by-step application instructions, which would be a great advantage.
  • Configuration Review based on standards such as CIS Benchmark, FDCC, DISASTIGS and USGCB. However, the solution should also have the ability to customise the tests based on internal security standards as well.
  • Policy Compliance assessment capabilities to help the organisation measure and report on its compliance without spending an excessive amount of resources.
  • Reporting: Solution reporting should provide flexible, actionable and customizable reporting that includes:
    • Prioritized Remediation
    • Step-by-Step Instructions
    • Estimated Completion Times
    • Issues Addressed by Each Patch
    • Systems Affected
    • Direct Links to the Patches on the Manufacturers’ websites.
  • Third-Party Integrations to enhance and enrich functionality.
