Learn about the security-relevant characteristics of vulnerability management and SIEM data and how it can contribute to improving network security.
- [Teacher] Vulnerability Management Systems present data…on weak areas in your network.…They also help you track vulnerabilities…until they get resolved.…One of the most fundamental types of data…produced by Vulnerability Management Systems…is a comprehensive list of software/hardware assets…in your network.…If you don't know what you own,…it's impossible to protect it.…By the way, this process of identifying your network assets…is referred to as enumeration.…
Once you know what assets you have in your network,…the next step is to check…if there are any known vulnerabilities associated with them.…The potential vulnerabilities…include outdated firmware or operating systems…as well as software box in general.…Leading VMs recommend…available patches, updates and upgrades…to fix the vulnerabilities once they are detected.…Vulnerability Management Systems and their sensors…can be deployed within a network…to thoroughly scan and continuously monitor…every asset behind your firewall.…
Another option is to treat your network as a black box…
