An Integrated Guide to Vulnerability Management

Vulnerability management is the continuous, systematic process of finding, analyzing, reporting on, managing, and addressing cyber vulnerabilities across endpoints, workloads, and systems. A robust vulnerability management programme uses threat intelligence and an understanding of IT and business operations to priorities risks and quickly remedy weaknesses. Therefore, we introduce to you BugBase's Managed Bug Bounty Program. In this program , we filter bug reports as part of an ongoing crowdsourced security effort, saving you time by separating the signal from the noise.

The continual, routine process of discovering, analysing, reporting on, managing, and resolving cyber vulnerabilities across endpoints, workloads, and systems is known as vulnerability management. A security team often uses vulnerability management technology to find vulnerabilities and then applies various patching or remediation procedures to close them.

A robust vulnerability management programme prioritises risks and addresses vulnerabilities as soon as feasible using threat intelligence and an understanding of IT and business processes.

A vulnerability, as defined by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO 27002), is "a weakness of an asset or group of assets that one or more threats can exploit."

A vulnerability manager's main duty is to control exposure to known vulnerabilities. A high-quality vulnerability tool or toolset may significantly increase the deployment and continuing effectiveness of a vulnerability management programme, even if vulnerability management entails more than just running a scanning tool.

The market is flooded with alternatives and fixes, all of which tout superior attributes. Keep the following in consideration while considering a vulnerability management solution:

· Identifying vulnerabilities is critical; otherwise, a vulnerability management solution won't be very effective and won't help with overall protection. BugBase has an experienced team of security researchers who provide efficient reports in a short span of time.

· Visibility that is complete and in real-time is essential. In a moment, you should be able to identify what is exposed. Legacy vulnerability tools can make it difficult to see vulnerabilities; for example, network scans take a long time and produce stale findings, bloated agents reduce company productivity, and large reports offer little assistance in addressing issues quickly.

What is Continuous Testing and How is it Important?

Applications are tested continually across the whole software development life cycle in practice known as continuous testing (CT) (SDLC). CT aims to assess software quality across the SDLC, giving important feedback early and facilitating higher-quality and quicker delivery.

Common injections may be found and fixed using a variety of commercial tools and solutions at the static code level. However, many development teams struggle with a lack of qualified personnel who can reliably detect and categorise severe vulnerabilities, especially those that only manifest themselves in runtime contexts. Many firms keep track of these flaws manually, but doing so can lead to severe inefficiencies and bottlenecks when trying to integrate security testing into development workflows.

Continuous testing collaborates with current CI technologies to identify problems early, save significant time and effort later on. This helps monitor testing for application, microservice, and API security vulnerabilities or logic faults.

Continual testing has various advantages. At a higher level, it gets rid of the difficulties that might arise when testing is done all at once. Code is automatically tested as soon as it is integrated with continuous testing.

Additionally, because developers no longer need to wait for QA teams to finish testing before modifying their code, CT helps save them time and effort. Instead, testing is done constantly, allowing for prompt, proactive corrections to security and code quality problems. Concurrent events might take place in many areas.

To improve upon the existing infrastructure of Vulnerability management and Continuous Testing, We introduce to you BugBase's Managed Bug Bounty Program. In BugBase's Managed Bug Bounty Program, We screen bug reports as part of an active crowdsourced security endeavour, so you don't have to waste time separating signal from noise. BugBase allows you to receive a number of triaged reports curated and analysed by our security team for your company based on the plan chosen by your organisation.

BugBase's Managed Bug Bounty Program allows organisations to get reports for efficient testing involving penetration and continuous testing. The reports are provided to the organisations in an efficient and quick manner by employing our experienced security researchers. This program is designed to cater to the needs of a company, whether small or big and is customisable however necessary.
