cybersecurity factorsDuring a cyber attack, it is important to detect, block and defend from malicious software. The threats out there are numerous and advanced malware is always a problem. We utilize the best firewalls that can quickly detect an attack in progress and identify malicious activity currently on your network. Our top-of-the-line threat intelligence feeds will quickly detect and alert on unknown processes or low reputation endpoints that are interacting with assets inside the network.

What Is Risk-Based Vulnerability Patching

Vulnerability patching is simply the process of fixing vulnerabilities within software. A pretty straightforward concept that typically involves the developer of the software discovering the vulnerability and then fixing it before an official release. Vulnerability patching also refers to the updating of an operating system or other software with the hopes of fixing any discovered vulnerabilities. So, to fix the issue, software or network providers need to make a vulnerability patch. Users can regularly check whether any patches are available for their system. Then install those updates as soon as possible after the release.

Since MSEDP offers top-of-the-line IT and cybersecurity services, we can stay on top of these aspects, so you do not have to. It can be very difficult to run a business and manage some important aspects of your website. Perhaps you have an in-house IT team, but if you do not, then turning to MSEDP allows for professional care an attention to your IT and cybersecurity needs. Leave the computer stuff to us! We will make sure that your network is not compromised by utilizing the latest in cybersecurity services and implementing those updates.

Cyber security Why Risk-Based Vulnerability Patching is the Solution

Since the landscape of threats for cyber-attacks is every-growing and complex, it is impossible to patch every single vulnerability in your software before any release. If a developer does miss a vulnerability, someone can file a report after the discovery. But this means that the vulnerability can exist in your software for months, or even years, before there is a report and a fix. During this time, malicious actors can discover the vulnerability and exploit it with great precision.

All of this leads to more importance with your cybersecurity services and the overall protection of your network. And makes the importance of sound risk-based decision making even greater than before. When the decision is made for risk-based vulnerability patching, it is important to understand three things: the risk of vulnerability, the discovery date of the vulnerability, and the release date of the fix.

The Risk of Vulnerability

If a vulnerability is very easy to exploit, then it is likely that the discovery has been made. But if a vulnerability has been discovered, there is no real way of knowing when a fix is going to be complete. In fact, the vulnerability may have been published online by the malicious actors themselves. Which means it may be included in hacking tools, such as ransomware, malware, and trojans. With MSEDP by your side though, you will have firewall protection that alerts you of these vulnerabilities and keeps your network safe from hackers.

The Discovery Date of the Vulnerability

If a vulnerability has been reported, but has not been confirmed and fixed, then exploitation by hackers is likely. The longer the vulnerability remains unpatched, the higher the risk for exploitation. Leaving you and your network open to malicious attacks by hackers. Our IT team is constantly on these issues and will implement changes to keep your network and data safe from any vulnerabilities.

The Release Date of the Fix

If there is a release to fix the vulnerability, then you should apply it as soon as possible. By having MSEDP as your managed service provider, we make these updates in a timely fashion. Ensuring your protection from malicious intent.

How Does Risk-Based Vulnerability Patching Work

If you do not have a clear strategy for deciding which vulnerabilities to fix and when, then you are risking the chance of leaving some vulnerabilities unpatched for too long. Which, of course, leaves your systems vulnerable to malicious attacks. By having MSEDP as your managed cyber security provider, you can rest assured that we are on top of these issues for you. And have the means to assess these vulnerabilities as they present themselves. When it comes to implementing risk-based vulnerability patching, there are three steps:

  1. Identify the vulnerabilities in the software.
  2. Understand the risk associated with the vulnerabilities.
  3. Decide which ones to fix and when to fix them.

Aside from the very obvious dangers of malicious attacks, there are also other reasons why you should implement risk-based vulnerability patching. MSEDP can help you make these decisions or simply make the decisions for you. We have years of experience as an IT service provider and know how to effectively handle these issues. If a vulnerability has a low-risk association and there is no report, then there is no pressing need to fix it. The malicious actors likely will not waste their time trying to exploit something difficult.

By understanding the risks, we make sure to handle the most pressing updates quickly. With every update and patch, we follow all guidelines and regulations to keep your network and software up and running. But by implementing risk-based vulnerability patching, we can manage the complexities of your cybersecurity issues by protecting you and your business from the more pressing malicious attacks that make themselves present. By working with MSEDP's cybersecurity team, you will be getting the care and attention you deserve. We will go above and beyond to make sure that your cybersecurity needs are meet at all times.

Secure Protection From Malware & Viruses

The function of anti-virus protection is to detect viruses or malware that may harm your computer and alert you before the transmission happens. No matter how safe and cautious you may be, these issues arise and there is always a slim chance of becoming infected. And thus putting all of your files and data at risk.

But early detection prohibits the further transmission of viruses and malware. Most virus infiltration is self-replicating. So once they are in, they quickly spread. Our anti-virus protection will stop its ability to spread and keep your computers safe.

Viruses and malware are self-replicating, meaning they spread once they are allowed inside a victim’s computer. An antivirus prevents this from happening and also stops the virus’s ability to spread to other computers.

Block Spam and Ads

Nobody, and I mean nobody, likes pop-up ads and spam. They are a nuisance. And not only that, but spam and pop-up ads are also a common way to spread malware and viruses. So one wrong click can bring your whole system down and compromise your data.

Our anti-virus protection will block hidden malware and prompt you to disconnect or abort a download if anything seems suspicious. So you will always be aware of what you are downloading and the risks it presents. Which means there will not be a need to worry if you may be downloading data that will lead to a virus. Stop malware in its tracks!

Stop Online Hackers

Phishing Scams

Well, with our anti-virus protection there is no need to worry about hacking, since your files will be protected. We make sure all safeguards are in place so you can safely and securely keep your data.

Malware & Virus Scanning

Even with all of these measures in place, malware and viruses may still find a way in. They can be small, hidden scripts from some website or download that did not trigger anything, but is there regardless.

When we can, we do not only scan for malware or viruses either. We also scan for possible drive errors than may eventually lead to the loss of data. And may cause your computer to slow down. So it is also just good practice to run these scans. When you utilize our anti-virus protection, we can schedule set times each day and/or week to run these scans and keep you safe.

Anti-Virus Protections Avoids PC Slowdowns

Any viruses or malware slowing down your computer are removed and frees up space and improves response time in the process.

This feature is great for those places that may only have one computer for the company's use. So YOU may know to be safe, but perhaps others are a little more careless. Avoid infection from those careless users.

And when you have safer internet surfing, it does not only mean protection from the usual fraudulent activities online. There may be other real threats we may not know about, but the software does!

These words come as a recommendation from The National Cyber Security Alliance. MSEDP is also here to help with all of your internet and web security needs. So please, do not hesitate to reach out to us today. Learn how to be safer on the internet and what you can do to limit outside forces from infiltrating your browsers and devices.

Stop, Think & Connect

This is a mantra of The National Cyber Security Alliance. These words raise caution and aim to help all internet users locate any dangers on the web. By following them, you can quickly pinpoint any malicious software or solicitations and make your time using the internet exponentially safer.

Internet SafetyStop

I don’t want to sound hyperbolic or anything, but every time you log onto the internet it is potentially an access point for malicious attempts against you. So stopping simply means to be aware of your surroundings and understand that your actions have consequences.

Think

We have all heard “don’t talk to strangers.” Well, take that sentiment and apply it to your time on the internet. Always be a little wary of requests from strangers. However, you do also have to think about your friends, too. You may receive an unsolicited request from a “friend,” like your bank or credit card company. These solicitations will ask, unprompted, for information regarding private information. Heck, you may even receive a request of some kind from a “friend,” this time being a person you know. But it is actually a hacked account. In a nutshell, any incoming communication that is asking for action or personal information should be taken with a grain of salt. So, raise those red flags and proceed with caution.

Connect

Lastly, there is of course the connection. Which you want to be secure, especially when entering sensitive information, like passwords, credit cards, etc. So it is important that you’re on a secure site with HTTPS in the URL. Always enable strong authentication tools, like 2-Factor Authentication, biometrics, or security keys whenever possible. This holds doubly true when accessing sensitive information. On a yearly basis, there are on average 9 million Americans who have their identities stolen each year. So please, be aware of your surroundings when on the web and don’t give away valuable information without following through with these protocols.
