Vulnerability Management

Reduce Security Vulnerabilities in Your Operations

Vulnerability Management Explained

Vulnerability management is the process of identifying, classifying, prioritizing, remediating, and responding to security vulnerabilities in software and networks. Remediation can involve patching, software reconfiguration, or updating security policies.

A security vulnerability is a flaw or error in your security program that can be exploited by malicious actors to compromise your network.

Minimize Security Weaknesses in Your Operating Environment

Every day, new vulnerabilities emerge in your IT ecosystem. However, not all vulnerabilities are equally critical. Many exploited vulnerabilities are already known to security and IT professionals at the time of the incident.

Rather than adopting a reactive approach and trying to address vulnerabilities as they arise, it's more effective to focus on those vulnerabilities that pose the greatest risk to your organization. This involves analyzing and prioritizing vulnerabilities based on risk and data-driven metrics aligned with your business objectives, to minimize unnecessary patching and downtime.

Rhyno's Vulnerability Management Lifecycle

Proactive defenses are essential, but known vulnerabilities with available fixes still account for many breaches.

With Rhyno, you'll engage in a vulnerability management process that supports continuous improvement. It starts with discovery to analyze your current state, identify critical data, assets, and objectives, and establish a clear baseline. You'll then prioritize Rhyno's recommendations for triage and program execution. Your Rhyno team will carry out services for remediation based on the prioritized vulnerabilities.

The final phase validates progress and compares results against your baseline. You'll receive consolidated reports outlining revised recommendations and lessons learned, allowing for ongoing adjustments to your vulnerability management program for continuous improvement.

Here's how Rhyno's vulnerability management process works:

  • Current vulnerability state
  • Relevant processes
  • Environmental factors
  • Key stakeholders and contacts
  • Strengths and areas for improvement


Recommendations for Execution

  • Process recommendations
  • Triage of vulnerabilities
  • Roadmap for program execution


Execute the Right Services for Remediation

  • Advice on recommendations
  • Remediation guidance
  • Client education
  • Root-cause analysis
  • Status reporting throughout program execution


Compare Results Against Expectations

  • Final report comparing results to baseline
  • Consolidated remediation information
  • Key takeaways
  • Revised recommendations

Common Security Vulnerabilities

Rhyno's Vulnerability Management Services aim to continuously improve your mitigation processes.

  • Insider threats
  • Unpatched or outdated software
  • Weak or missing authorization credentials
  • Inadequate or missing data encryption
  • Misconfigured systems
  • Improper resource management

Security vulnerabilities can exist in:

  • Governance programs - ownership, documentation, threat and vulnerability detection, information sharing, risk management
  • Technology - network, wireless, host, and application processes and tools
  • Scanning processes - network, wireless, host, and application scanning
  • Remediation process - program tracking and metrics
