Vulnerability Management Services

Stay ahead of the game with proactive vulnerability management.

Who is it for?

Any organisation that relies on technology to conduct business should consider implementing a vulnerability management program. This includes small businesses, large enterprises, government agencies, and non-profit organisations. Hackers are constantly searching for vulnerabilities in systems and networks, and organisations of all sizes and industries are at risk.

Vulnerability management services can help organisations identify potential vulnerabilities, prioritise remediation efforts, and reduce the risk of a successful cyber-attack. Additionally, organisations subject to regulatory requirements such as ISO 27001, PCI-DSS, and GDPR are often required to implement vulnerability management programs to maintain compliance. By proactively managing vulnerabilities, organisations can strengthen their security posture, protect their assets, and maintain customer trust.

Vulnerability Management Process

Depending on your organisation’s requirements and budget, experienced security experts at Holocron Cyber are ready to provide the following Vulnerability Management processes to your organisation, broken down into 4 phases:


Phase 1: Implementation and training

Holocron Cyber will design, deploy, and commission the vulnerability scanning solution. Holocron Cyber can then train key staff from your organisation in how the platform works.

Security Policy

Phase 2: Scan, Assessment and Notification

Holocron Cyber will run scheduled and ad-hoc vulnerability scans on approved targets within your network. The scheduling of these scans can be completely customisable, to suit your organisation's budget and project requirements. The scan results are assessed for the presence of major vulnerabilities and Holocron Cyber will then notify you of any discovered vulnerabilities by providing a comprehensive report.

Non Compliance

Phase 3: Remediation and Treatment

Once you have been notified of major vulnerabilities discovered, you organisation must determine your response and containment plan. As part of the notification process, Holocron Cyber will advise you on a recommended course of action. However, you are responsible for performing all remediation activities. Some sample remediation methods include security patch installation, configuration adjustment, software removal, accept/ignore the risk, etc.

Phase 4: Track and Report

After remediation activities have been applied and communicated to Holocron Cyber, a remediation scan can be run to verify that the remediation activities worked. Scan results will then be provided to you.

Service Offering

Holocron Cyber can customise the Vulnerability Management Service to suit your organisation’s individual requirements.

Whether you are after a once off vulnerability scan to determine your current threat level, or whether you would prefer ongoing, regular scans that are fully managed, Holocron Cyber have the experts that can assist your organisation.

Service Description

Depending on the required level of Vulnerability Management that your organisation requires, Holocron Cyber can offer the following key services:

Active and Passive Scan Management

Holocron Cyber will manage and run network-based scans using active or passive scanning techniques using the scan engine and monitor for vulnerabilities across the network. Holocron Cyber can customise these scans for your organisations requirements, including conducting non-credentialed and credentialed scans.

Passive Monitoring (Optional)

Using the Network Monitor (if deployed), Holocron Cyber will monitor specific network traffic segments to detect short-lived assets and hard-to-scan devices, such as sensitive OT and IoT systems and medical devices.

Agent-Based Scanning

Holocron Cyber will manage and run vulnerability scans on endpoints using the scanning agent and monitor for vulnerabilities across the asset base. This type of monitoring is preferred on critical servers to enable continuous monitoring. This is also perfect network segments that cannot be reached by the network-based scanner.

Ad hoc and Custom Scans

Outside of the regular scans, Holocron Cyber can run ad hoc or targeted scans on specific assets as requested by you to validate for specific vulnerabilities.

Expert Remediation Advice and Support

Included within our reports, Holocron Cyber will provide expert remediation advice, including prioritisation of remediations that will most significantly improve security posture. Your organisation may also contact our analysts to seek additional advice and step by step guidance on how to remediate vulnerabilities.

Remediation Scans

As part of our scans, we verify vulnerabilities that might exist after your organisation performs their remediation and patching activities and will provide notification on residual vulnerabilities that need urgent attention.

Detailed Vulnerability Reporting

Holocron Cyber will provide detailed reports that contain a full analysis of vulnerabilities, trends, as well as recommendations to remediate the top vulnerabilities.

Dashboard Access

Your organisation can be provided access to your tenancy to view dashboards, asset information, vulnerability reports, and generate self-service reports from the portal.

The Benefits for Your Organisation

Reduced Risk of Cyber Attacks

A mature vulnerability management program helps organisations identify and remediate vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by cybercriminals, reducing the risk of successful attacks.

Improved Compliance

Organisations subject to regulatory requirements can use a vulnerability management program to demonstrate compliance with standards such as HIPAA, PCI-DSS, and GDPR.

Cost Savings

A mature vulnerability management program can help organisations save costs associated with responding to cyber-attacks, such as data breach investigations, legal fees, and lost productivity.

Increased Efficiencies

By prioritising remediation efforts based on risk, a vulnerability management program can help organisations allocate resources more efficiently and effectively.

Improved Communication and Collaboration

A mature vulnerability management program encourages communication and collaboration between IT, security, and business teams, leading to more effective vulnerability management across the organisation.

Protection of Brand and Reputation

By proactively managing vulnerabilities, organisations can avoid data breaches and other security incidents that can damage their brand and reputation.

Competitive Advantage

A mature vulnerability management program can give organizations a competitive advantage by demonstrating their commitment to security and protecting their customers' data.

The Risks of Not having a formal Vulnerability Management Program

Increased Risk of Cyber Attacks

Without a formal vulnerability management program in place, organisations are at a higher risk of cyber attacks, including data breaches, ransomware attacks, and other malicious activities.

Compliance Issues

Organisations subject to regulatory requirements may face compliance issues and potential penalties for failing to implement a formal vulnerability management program.

Financial Loss

A successful cyber attack can lead to significant financial losses, including direct costs such as incident response and recovery, and indirect costs such as lost productivity and damage to brand reputation.

Reputational Damage

A data breach or other security incident can damage an organisation's reputation and erode customer trust, leading to a loss of business and revenue.

Business Disruption

A successful cyber attack can disrupt business operations and cause significant downtime, leading to lost revenue and productivity.

Legal Liability

Organisations may face legal liability for failing to implement reasonable security measures to protect customer data, particularly in industries such as healthcare, finance, and retail.

Limited Visibility

Without a formal vulnerability management program, organisations may have limited visibility into their security posture, making it difficult to identify and prioritize vulnerabilities for remediation.
