Frequently Asked Questions
We can imagine that you have many questions. You can always contact us to learn more. Below are a few examples of questions that we can investigate further with you.
What is the difference between a vulnerability assessment and vulnerability management?
Vulnerability management is the continuous process of identifying, analyzing, and prioritizing vulnerabilities in computer systems, networks, and applications, and implementing measures to reduce the risks and impacts of those vulnerabilities. It is an ongoing process that involves regularly scanning for vulnerabilities, evaluating the potential risks and impacts of those vulnerabilities, and implementing measures to address them.
A vulnerability assessment is a specific type of activity that is carried out as a point-in-time exercise. It involves identifying, analysing, and prioritising vulnerabilities in a system, network, or application, and determining the potential risks and impacts of those vulnerabilities. A vulnerability assessment may be conducted using a combination of automated tools and manual testing to identify vulnerabilities and assess their potential risks and impacts.
What is the difference between vulnerability management and a penetration test?
Vulnerability management is focused on the continuous identification and remediation of vulnerabilities in a systematic and ongoing manner. It has the objective of identifying as many vulnerabilities as possible with supported assessment of priority in remediating them.
A penetrationtest is a more in-depth approach to evaluating the security of a system, network, or application with a very specific objective. A penetration test is performed by actively testing and exploiting vulnerabilities to determine their impact and potential risks. Both are important for improving the security of a system, network, or application, but they serve different purposes and are typically used at different stages of the security assessment process. If you are in doubt which one would best suit your needs, please contact us and we will help you get started.
In general, what is the difference between vulnerability management and a Managed Detection & response service?
Vulnerability management is focused on identifying and addressing vulnerabilities in a systematic and ongoing manner which provides input to an (urgent) change management process.
MDR is focused on continuously monitoring for and responding to security threats and anomalies which ties into the (security) incident management process. Both are important for improving the security of an organisation, but they serve different purposes and are typically used at different stages of the security assessment and response process.
