Core Security’s comprehensive penetration testing tool, Core Impact, can now import data from two additional vulnerability scanners: Frontline VM and beSECURE. Both vulnerability assessment and management solutions were recently acquired by Fortra to establish a comprehensive security assessment toolkit. By adding integration with these solutions, Core Impact can further support organizations looking to streamline their security assessments.
Enhancing Vulnerability Management with Pen Testing
Vulnerability management solutions are essential tools that identify network security vulnerabilities and prioritize and manage their remediation. Some vulnerability management solutions also provide risk context, such as exploitability and asset criticality information, to help enhance and personalize prioritization. Penetration testing works with vulnerability management to significantly reduce cyber risk by taking those vulnerabilities and actively testing them to see if they can be exploited.
Core Impact penetration testing software is able to import the results from these vulnerability management solutions and immediately run a pen test. The pen test will not only determine if any of these vulnerabilities can be exploited, but identify what business-critical assets and data can be accessed through that exploit. The combination of vulnerability management and pen testing provides IT teams real-world risk context that is invaluable when planning and prioritizing remediation.
Frontline VM and beSECURE
Frontline VM is a cloud-native, vulnerability management solution from Digital Defense, by Fortra that is fast to deploy and simple to use. Offering both managed service or self-service, this SaaS solution uses proprietary scanning technology to perform comprehensive network security assessments. Backed by reliable customer support and professional services, Frontline VM provides comprehensive and customizable reports with prioritized, actionable results supplemented by expert guidance. The security posture rating system uses letter and number grades that are easily understood and communicated. Businesses can even benefit from peer comparison, with side-by-side charts showing how similar companies score.
BeSECURE is a data-driven, self-service vulnerability assessment solution from Beyond Security, by HelpsSystems that is flexible to deploy and easy to maintain, using daily vulnerability database updates to stay ahead of the latest threats. Able to deploy both on-premise or in the cloud, this vulnerability manager conducts comprehensive network security assessments, providing on-demand reports and a built-in ticketing system. BeSECURE is fast to deploy, flexible, and easy to use, and is available through a simple, transparent pricing model. Businesses can benefit from the built-in web application scanning.
Centralizing Your Solutions
Combining any of the scanners Core Impact integrates with provides centralization that can reduce console fatigue and save time. However, integrating with Frontline VM or beSECURE centralizes your security portfolio, bringing multiple solutions under the same umbrella. Organizations can benefit from having one point of contact and the same best in class support to further simplify your security.
