Every day there is news of a website being hacked and the personal details of hundreds and millions of users being exposed. No enterprise or organization is safe in todays business set up where data breach incidents are growing every day. Though external threats do exist, according to Forrester, Most data breach incidents come from inside. As per the findings of Forrester, of the different data breach incidents reported external attacks only represented approximately 25 percent, lost or stolen devices accounted for 31 percent while inadvertent misuse by an employee accounted for 27 percent. This shows that 58 percent of incidents aren’t caused by malicious entities. Besides that, as per the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) database, a dictionary of publicly known information security vulnerabilities and exposures, there are 60,000+ common vulnerabilities, 900+ common weaknesses, 1014+ common configuration errors, over 150,000 security related events, and a large number of application related errors.
With threats and vulnerabilities manifesting themselves in the least expected place at the least expected hour, enterprises need a solution that provides the ability to continuously monitor and manage their security network and systems without locking them into any upfront investment. This is possible by partnering with managed service providers who provide vulnerability assessment and network penetration testing services.
