Vulnerability Management

verinice and Greenbone GSM / openVAS working together

Finding and fixing vulnerabilities

verinice takes up where vulnerability scanners such as the open source solution OpenVAS or Greenbone GSM leave off. Scanners find the weak spots - an ISMS tool like verinice initiates a process and ensures remedy. Together they team up as ideal combination for an efficient vulnerability management.

even a network with just a few hundred clients easily acumulates thousands of vulnerabilities that nee to be assigned to the appropriate systems, services and administrators.

verinice addresses precisely this:

  • It imports detected vulnerabilities,
  • groups them,
  • creates tasks for the responsible persons and
  • checks the overall process.

If an agent claims to have fixed a vulnerability verinice checks this with the next scan and completes the task - or adresses the agent again. Without legwork of the safety officer. Of course processing status, response times, etc. can be issued as a report.
