Vulnerability
Management Service

Find out how we can harness the power of Vulnerability Management for your organisation.

Expertise close at hand to navigate the complexities of Vulnerability Management with ease.

With Longwall Vulnerability Management service you gain a partner who’ll be there to support you with every aspect of managing risk across your estate. We’ll work with you to design and implement a robust Vulnerability Management programme and then be there for you and your team to manage and optimise a sustainable lifecycle.

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.

Vulnerability Management
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.

Popular features

Monitoring 24/7

We use a lightweight endpoint agent that provides ongoing monitoring, including remote workers and sensitive assets that can’t be traditionally scanned. Deploy easily to Windows, Mac and Linux devices.

Hybrid / SaaS architecture

We use a combination of virtual cloud-based consoles and scan engines with the option to integrate local engines to suit your requirements and individual infrastructure.

Local device discovery

Our scan engines will discover unlimited assets on your network – allowing visibility for where to best use your licence account. If you have networks in multiple locations, we can install a dedicated local engine at each one.

Remediation support

Our industry leading cyber experts will work with you to provide ongoing support, to help you prioritise and execute your remediation roadmap.

Policy compliance assessment

Scan for common compliance requirements or custom policies to ensure that your unique operating environment meets the standards you are accountable for.

Customisable reporting suite

Fully customisable dashboards and reports to generate live data for every stakeholder, allowing you shared insights and views for collaboration and remediation planning.
