Design robust processes

Vulnerabilities can emerge at any time and in any location. We’ll work with you to design, test and implement a robust process to enable constant vigilance and continued improvement.

Prioritise critical vulnerabilities

Correlating vulnerabilities with multiple intelligence sources and enriched risk based scoring allows you to identify and remediate actively weaponised vulnerabilities first.

Reduce remediation times

A goal and an outcome of procedural vulnerability management. We’ll streamline your efforts to optimise your impact on risk reduction and enable attainment of time to remediation targets.

Maintain regulatory compliance

Scanning your data management systems and mitigating against known vulnerabilities will ensure you comply with data protection regulations (PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, DSS).

Reduce pressure on your team

Working alongside your team, removing barriers and guiding a process of batch based workload planning will take significant pressure from your team, allowing them to focus on their jobs.

Maintain cyber hygiene

Attackers search networks for known vulnerabilities and capitalise on poor system health. We’ll help you to visualise your entire system health so avoidable weaknesses can be prevented.

 We knew that we needed to be more strategic about how we look for and manage vulnerabilities across our estate but it has always been a challenge to dedicate resource to both understanding how to do it properly and to fixing the issues that are naturally uncovered.

Now that we have Longwall on board the lingering worries we had are gone and we can enjoy reporting on measureable reductions in risk.

Elevate your cyber security strategy

Vulnerability Management is an essential component of modern cyber defence systems. When properly implemented and managed the data and insights will inform and even make possible all of the other pillars of cyber security. So much more than a series of ad-hoc scans!

Risk
management

Visibility and control of live vulnerabilities make risk management possible.

Logging &
monitoring

Vulnerability and risk data can be correlated with security events for analysis.

Data
security

Insight allows you to prioritise and harden defences where data is stored.

Identity & Access
Management

Find insecure access control policies on your OS, apps, and cloud services.

Asset
management

Made possible with discovery scans and live endpoint health monitoring.

Incident
management

Contextual data helps identify points of entry, lateral movement, and pivot points.

Architecture
& config

Discovery assessments identify insecurities and inform a remediation strategy.

Engagement
& training

Notify users when they introduce risk to help them understand behavioural impact.

FAQs

Not all vulnerabilities can be remedied with a patch. A vulnerability management programme will identify a range of vulnerabilities, including failed patches, weak configurations, unknown devices and more.

Longwall use a system called “Risk scoring” which incorporates CVSS scores, malware exposure, exploit exposure and ease of use, and vulnerability age, giving a granular 1-1000 risk scale. This granular scale makes it simple to know which vulnerabilities need to be prioritised and where your riskiest assets lie.
  • Discovery scans (scan the whole network to discover all assets)
  • External scans (scan for vulnerabilities that expose your assets via external access to your network)
  • Internal scans (scan for configuration, password and IAM weaknesses that allow internal attackers to access your assets) 
  • Policy scans (scan for compliance requirements compliance requirements such as CIS, HIPAA, SCADA, and PCI)
We find that many organisations conduct ad-hoc scans and don’t have a defined iterative process that tracks changes to risk based on a changing threat landscape. This is usually because of a lack of internal expertise and resource. Some of the benefits of a vulnerability management service:
  • Confidence that your scanning systems are properly configured to reach every corner of your networks.
  • An accelerated response to publicly disclosed vulnerabilities with custom integrations with your patch management system, threat feeds and your SIEM platform.
  • A robust and tested vulnerability management process with expert support for prioritisation and complex remediations

Vulnerability scans are automated scans of your systems that report on the exposure to publicly disclosed vulnerabilities.

Penetration tests are manual attempts to exploit weaknesses in the architecture of your IT network, to find out how susceptable your assets are to unauthorised access.
