Vulnerability Management Beyond Scanning

A proactive approach to identifying, assessing, prioritizing, and mitigating vulnerabilities in your systems and networks.

What is Vulnerability Management?

Minimize the Attack Surface with a Comprehensive Vulnerability Management Program

Vulnerabilities are gaps in the security of networks, systems, applications, etc. These potential weaknesses can be exploited to gain unauthorized access, disrupt services, steal data, or perform other malicious activities. 

Identifying and addressing vulnerabilities is crucial to maintaining the security of a system, and vulnerability management is an ongoing practice intended to mitigate those gaps and enhance security across your entire organization.

FRSecure’s Approach to Vulnerability Management

Simply put, this is something we expect every organization to have in place or be working toward. Most organizations may have scanning processes in place, but a comprehensive program entails much more than that.

FRSecure will help design and implement a full vulnerability management program at your organization that focuses heavily on risk-based asset management with an emphasis on process structure, enhancing exposure awareness, management of vulnerabilities, guiding remediation activities, and providing appropriate reporting. 


Vulnerability Management Process

A nonstop process to guide remediation, mitigation, and risk reduction


Plan & Enhance

Determining the scope of the vulnerability management program is an important step in ensuring efforts and resources are focused effectively. We look at things like assets, network segmentation, third-party systems, and regulatory requirements to choose how to manage risks.



Scanning is likely the most recognizable and enacted component of vulnerability management across organizations. We'll work with you on asset discovery, vulnerability assessments, and put together a recommended schedule for each agent and network scan.


Report & Prioritize

This is where we work with you to determine what vulnerabilities and systems to remediate first. This is done with the risk posed to the organization in mind, and is categorized into vulnerability and asset risk ratings.



Identifying vulnerabilities through scans means nothing if we don't do something about them! In the action phase, the response is prescribed. This is typically focused on remediation—fixing identified vulnerabilities. In scanning, this is often (but not limited to) patch management.



It's simply not enough to patch and remediate our vulnerabilities. We need to ensure that the changes made were successful. Our team will work with you to rescan and validate the effectiveness of any changes.


Reassess & Enhance

It is important to regularly review and reassess the scope of your vulnerability management program to ensure it remains aligned with your organization's evolving infrastructure, technology landscape, and security priorities. We'll start this cycle again from step one with these in mind!

The landscape of vulnerabilities is evolving constantly and at a rapid pace. Hence, static one-time scans are not enough. At a minimum, organizations should be scanning quarterly. It is our stance that monthly or continual scans should be the ideal state for all organizations. Today most organizations are lagging far behind in this space. Our data concludes that less than half of organizations (48%) are scanning at least quarterly.
