Why bluedog is the vulnerability management solution?

Scan your network and know it all!

Or so it seems, if you believe everything you are told by marketing!. There is a problem with this though, as vulnerability scanners never tell you what their true coverage is. They will only show you the results for the hosts they have found.

How do you then know how complete your data is? Do you really have to go and dig through your asset list? Do you know for sure if this list is also complete? Do you have to correlate this manually?

Vulnerability Scanning

The Core Values of bluedog

Data correlation from within

Nobody has the time or the patience to do this. Yes, maybe once or twice, but not every single week, over and over again. What you’re after is a process structure that combines the network asset information with the vulnerability information into one overview.

These are the types of things where automation, machine learning and perhaps even some artificial intelligence can come into play. The bluedog vulnerability management solution, creates these overviews for you.

We correlate the available network data from the other technical modules, with the results of the vulnerability scans we perform on your network segment. This allows bluedog to give accurate statements about network scanning coverage and performance over time.

Business rhyme and reason!

Nothing is more annoying than having to deal with issues that have been classified by vulnerability scanners as high or even critical when you know that in your network they aren’t.

When you have a weak encryption issue show up on your network and it’s 5 segments deep in your network, the risk of such an issue is completely different than one sitting on the public network side. Changing these values yourself puts up an integrity question. How is this validated and governed?

How do you convince upper management or an auditor that this is indeed a correct change? It’s safer and easier to convince people if a third party does this for you. But those same third parties rarely want to do this, because they have no context about your network.

Luckily bluedog has this business context, as we have more data and insights than the standard vulnerability management scanners. This allows us to look at and interpret your network data and make business correlations with the vulnerability scanning results we gather for you. We will remove or alter issues that we believe have no impact on your network. This gives you a trusted third party report that you cannot change yourself, but will have the contents you are after.

Do you know how are you are fixing issues over time? Vulnerability scans are spot checks in time, and have no timelines included in them by default. If you would like to have insights based on a timeline, typically those reports have to be created from scratch by you. With standard reports, you cannot tell how long an issue has been present. You’d have to dig through your old reports until you’ve found the first occurrence. This is a painful job that nobody has time for.

The bluedog vulnerability management module gives you insights on these topics. Because of the frequent scans that are performed, we create overviews related to the mean time to mitigate issues on various severity levels. But we also give overviews on persistent issues in the network.

The bluedog solution

Vulnerability management can be a nightmare at times. Individual scans lack visibility on network scanning coverage and persistent issues over time.

But this is an issue of the past. The bluedog solution combines accurate and detailed vulnerability management with actual business context, all included in the service modules offered.

No more manual correlations, no more difficult talks with auditors on why you’ve changed risk ratings and no more frustration having to sift through dozens of reports.

Why? Because we want to protect your business and let you do what you do best: running your business! We take care of the security issues, one by one.
