Optimisation of Remediation

In today's digital age, businesses that do not leverage applications to streamline their operations and enhance their customer experiences risk falling behind their competitors. However, it is important to ensure that these applications are optimized for performance and security to avoid potential downtime, data breaches, and other issues that can harm the business.

Business Impact of Security Vulnerabilities:

Security vulnerabilities can impact applications in a variety of ways, depending on the nature and severity of the vulnerability. Here are some ways in which security vulnerabilities can affect applications:

Data breaches: One of the most significant impacts of security vulnerabilities is that they can result in data breaches. Attackers can exploit vulnerabilities in applications to gain unauthorized access to sensitive data, such as personal information, financial records, or intellectual property.
Application downtime: Security vulnerabilities can also lead to application downtime, as attackers can use them to launch denial-of-service (DoS) attacks or other types of attacks that can bring down an application.
Reputation damage: When applications are compromised due to security vulnerabilities, it can damage the reputation of the organization that owns the application. Users may lose trust in the organization's ability to protect their data and may choose to do business elsewhere.
Financial loss: Security vulnerabilities can also lead to financial losses for organizations. In addition to the costs associated with investigating and remedying the vulnerability, organizations may also face legal fines and settlements if the vulnerability results in a data breach.
Compliance violations: Security vulnerabilities can also lead to compliance violations if the organization fails to meet regulatory requirements related to data protection and security. This can result in further legal and financial consequences.

Overall, security vulnerabilities can have a significant impact on applications, and it is essential for organizations to take proactive steps to identify and remediate vulnerabilities to minimize the risk of these impacts. Therefore, organisation requires to get complete clarity of the Vulnerability Management. Vulnerability Management is a intelligent confluence of Assessment, Analysis and Remediation.

A vulnerability which was discovered but is unpatched represents a security risk to a system. During the lifetime of a software system, new vulnerabilities are discovered over time. There are two opposing actors, the patch developers and the potential exploiters. Risk can be evaluated using the likelihood of a security breach and the impact of that adverse event on the system.

Our optimisation services for remediation is a consistent approach which helps organisations to effective cyber security posture and improved efficiency in business operations.

Case Study:
Case Study 1 => India’s Biggest Mutual Fund, headquartered in Mumbai were facing challenges on CVE remediation and application performance.
  • Lack of skill was impacting non-remediation of 6,588 Common Vulnerability Exposure (CVE) divided across Middleware, Databases, and Interfaces.
  • Realtime performance of multiple application was average even after increase in infrastructure YOY.
  • Application security compliance was awaited from more than 6 years.
  • Remediated 6,372 Common Vulnerability Exposure (CVE) with patching, version upgrade, and change in configuration.
  • Application performance improved between 30% to 45% after applying application performance tuning drivers i.e. Application configuration, environmental variables, and application transaction process flow.
  • Rectified 27 application processes from 5 business critical application impacted faster response to the concurrent requests.
  • Transferred 12 batch processing to real-time process in first 15 days impacted reconciliation time from 6 hours to 3 hours.
  • Application security compliance completed in 135 days with the team size of 18 peoples.
  • Optimised Applications Performance are consistent from Last 4 years.
