VULNERABILITY ASSESSMENTSecurity Vulnerability Assessment

Information / Flow

What is the threat of security vulnerabilities?

New and more sophisticated vulnerabilities are discovered every day.

Hackers will continue to develop more advanced cyber-attacks to break into corporate networks and steal sensitive data. Mason's security testing team makes effort to keep up with the latest changes in the information security field by constantly monitoring for new vulnerabilities and checking for updates to the scan tool database.

Daily IT operations causes security vulnerabilities due to changes in application and network configurations.

Changes to application and network components can create new security weaknesses.
New vulnerabilities may arise after changes are made to a customer's network or applications. With that in mind, the security team should conduct a vulnerability assessment after each major update or release to ensure that the changes implemented do not open new avenues for intruders to attack your infrastructure.

MASON's Vulnerability Assessment Approach

Mason's security team uses a combination of automated and manual approaches to perform vulnerability assessments.

Automated Approach

Automated scanning tools are determined based on customer's needs, requirements, and budget. These scans can detect if customers are exposed to those vulnerabilities because of the database management of vulnerability knowledge. The main advantage of an automated approach is that it provides broad coverage of security weaknesses that may exist on different devices and hosts on the network, regardless of time.

Manual Approach

Manual tuning of scan tools as well as manual validation of scan results to eliminate false positives. Upon completion of these manual assessments performed by our experts, you will receive reliable results that contain only confirmed incidents.
