Continuous Vulnerability Status Measurement for Web Applications and Computing Platforms

Applications need to be developed fast and sometimes speed is the enemy for quality and security. What about the server software you just purchased? Is it free from plaguing security vulnerabilities that can cause you expensive downtime? And does your IT service provider install security fixes swiftly after they have been released?

By applying continuous web application scans for applications and computing platforms that are accessible via Internet, your organization can be assured that most obvious software vulnerabilities are discovered and reported. Continuous scanning significantly reduces the probability of production failures and other disturbances. Timely reporting ensures that responsible parties can execute prioritized remedy actions over your most critical computing assets.

We measure your web applications’ threat exposure from an information security point of view. When vulnerability scans are continuous and automated, the effectiveness of Vulnerability Management process is also measured as a whole, by revealing the remedy rate of found vulnerabilities.

Our service covers  the canning technology and its maintenance including required license, regular vulnerability scans of the selected applications IT infrastructure platforms, and reports on the results as well as 24/7 support and contact point in Nixu Support Center.

Red Teaming

Organizations invest in defensive security measures to protect their business. But are those really effective? And how well can an organization protect its most valuable assets?

Nixu’s red team tests how well the combination of people, tools and processes work together in practice when facing a targeted attack. Think of it as a fire drill for your organization’s security team to measure the detection capabilities and response times.

Nixu’s red team utilizes the MITRE ATT&CK framework when conducting red teaming exercises. The framework characterizes and describes adversary behavior, tools, techniques and tactics used during targeted attacks.  It also provides transparency during the red team exercise about the utilized attack techniques, and identify gaps in the organization’s security defenses.  

As an outcome, your organization gets invaluable insight into your detection and response capabilities when you are facing a targeted attack.  It provides an overview of the weak points in your security controls and processes, including detailed recommendations on how to improve your security. We give you full insight into the performed attacks to maximize your learning opportunity.

Nixu tailors the red teaming exercise to your organization’s specific needs and the threats you are facing. Please contact us to discuss further how we can help improve your security.
