Be Always Ready By Eliminating Vulnerabilities Early

95% of all damaging cyber attacks are the result of exploiting well-known vulnerabilities. As your dependence on technology increases and you introduce additional electronic systems and software to support your operations, the rate of discovering and exploiting software vulnerabilities will continue to rise.

In today’s complex threat environment of malware, spyware, disgruntled employees and aggressive international hackers, developing and enforcing a strict and regular network security policy that incorporates ongoing vulnerability assessment is critical to maintaining business continuity. However, the process of vulnerability assessment and remediation sometimes is overlooked as a critical component of sound security practices.

Due to the changing nature of the security landscape and business requirements, new threats are putting organizations and their data at risk. By not taking steps to recognize and eliminate vulnerabilities, organizations, their systems and applications are potentially susceptible to exploitation, on a recurring basis.

Above Security’s ArkAngel security appliance allows you to perform targeted or network-wide vulnerability scans to anticipate and prevent common system vulnerabilities. Our online ArkAngel Security Management Portal offers a host of options to give you the flexibility to easily schedule recurring vulnerability scans in advance or on demand. In addition, consolidated reports allow you to demonstrate compliance with external and internal regulations.
