Are disconnected systems and poor communications between security applications and IT causing problems for your security management team? Is resolving security issues taking too long to process manually? Is your team having trouble prioritizing security alerts and vulnerabilities?
By leveraging Cask’s ServiceNow Security Operation package, forward-thinking organizations can gain valuable information and perhaps previously unknown insights into their vast array of security management systems. Instead of relying on guesswork and gut feelings to integrate these interdependent technologies most efficiently, administrators use ServiceNow to streamline the entire process. Further, organizations can now identify vulnerabilities and resolve challenges with optimized speed and accuracy by utilizing this multimodal suite of information-security applications.
The Current Challenge
Many agencies today are still using a combination of spreadsheets, disparate applications, and manual processes to manage vulnerabilities and track incidents. This lack of automation forces administrators to take their eyes off of the target – if only for a moment – which leaves the agency even more susceptible to security threats and data breaches. Administrators essentially become temporarily blind to the organization’s various assets, the related and potential vulnerabilities, and the incidents that may or may not be occurring on those assets in real time. As a result, organizations need a technological solution that successfully integrates the various complex systems related to asset management, including:
• Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) systems
• Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) systems
• Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS)
• Common Weakness Enumeration (CWE) systems
• Configuration Management Database (CMDB) systems
• Structured Threat Information Expression (STIX) data
• Trusted Automated Exchange of Indicator Information (TAXII) profiles
• National Vulnerability Database (NVD) and other databases
Automation is the Answer
Regardless of an agency’s size, location, or industry, automating asset management systems is no longer optional, it is crucial. Cybercriminals are becoming increasingly more sophisticated, creative, and devious. They are also becoming better at coordinating their criminal activities from multiple locations across the globe simultaneously.
Cask helps clients implement CMDB and Security Operations applications to track these continually evolving vulnerabilities and monitor the progression of security incidents and resolutions. Through each of the various phases of vulnerability identification, initial analysis, containment, eradication, recovery, the post-incident review, and even the creation of a knowledge-based article, Cask helps organizations integrate and streamline their vulnerability and asset management systems efficiently and cost-effectively.
