Manage your security teams as one tribe!
Organizations often manage IT functions such as security, operations, network architecture as separate business silos. Effective security attacks benefit from clutter for exactly one reason. Every team spends time focusing on the problem and proving that they’re not wrong most of the time when they want to come up with a solution. Streamline your business with automatic patch management.
Most organizations today are ready to counter unexpected cyber-attacks with advanced security tools. As the attackers know the situation, the number and volume of attacks are increasing day by day. In addition, the attackers take into account the reactions of enterprises to attacks. Therefore, out-of-box approaches are needed to create a good security circle.
Automating the patch lifecycle against vulnerabilities can protect the organization against emerging cyber threats. In addition, in the face of severe attacks, it is crucial to get your work teams to act together as if they were like one tribe to fend off the attack as soon as possible.
Automation eliminates unnecessary work
Most companies review their current status with planned monthly maintenance work. In terms of security, this process, which started with the patches that Microsoft released in bulk on Tuesday, usually takes a whole month. While various teams within the organization evaluating different aspects of the issue focus on patches, there may be nasty surprises targeting security. A new attack can occur at any time and could burn a hole in its ZeroTrust! policy. All security teams may have to stop patching and fix this issue and then start over.
Automatic vulnerability management is an effective technology for these types of issues. It provides a solution to the problem with its proactive approach. When such tools detect a vulnerability, they first match it with the device that is the source of the problem and create a security incident for the vulnerability. And then identify the relevant security patches. It defines a workflow that enables the deployment and application of these patches. Meanwhile, the patch evaluation data is added to the security incident (incident) opened for the relevant persons to approve and authorize.
Kids get together!
We need more controlled responses as we never know when and how emergencies will arise. We must plan our response procedures, rehearse approaches, and implement them with repeatable processes.
Within a routine maintenance cycle, we must have processes that manage an unforeseen event in an organized, efficient, and effective manner. You can do this if you have the right people, process management, and the proper communication channels that reduce new problems without disrupting your business operations. It is essential that your teams work together and in harmony to fend off the security risks which often affect the entire organization.
Tribal logic ensures the solution’s success by gathering the support personnel from all areas under the critical person who knows the vulnerable application or platform best. Team members who work together on the same priority item, have a leader, and have a support group can resolve faster and less confusion.
Vulnerability management is a dispersed collection of processes that affect the various silos the security and IT operations teams are responsible for. Organizations often manage IT functions such as security, operations, network architecture as separate business silos. Effective security attacks benefit from clutter for precisely one reason. Every team spends time focusing on the problem and proving that they’re not wrong most of the time when they want to come up with a solution. However, we must mature our processes to achieve a more effective and less chaotic recovery against attacks.
