Topic-icon How to do an effective vulnerability scanning on system?

1 month 1 week ago #3742 by 34jonston

Hi all, would like to seek opinions from the experts:

I am doing vulnerability scanning on an environment with about 50 devices (servers + network devices) and it's taking way too much of my time as my vendors are not able to do the fixing on time as it always get delay and by the time i do my next scan, it would have picked up new vulnerabilities.

Just want to know how you guys manage it or is there any technology that can do auto scanning w/o much effort?

Thank you.

Well, I think scanning alone is not the key issue here. Managing the remediation by the vendor is the crux of the problem, cos I think that's where you face challenges such as delays in remediating all the issues. Perhaps talk to the team lead to manage the fixing on a timely manner. Do a close follow up on a weekly basis as people tendency is always drag things.

Hi @Ronnie101 you are right in a way, it's all about timeliness in fixing it but I can't control that part. :(
