For many organizations, the vulnerability management process between InfoSec and IT Ops teams can be a long, painful and inefficient process. Sophisticated scanning tools are used by InfoSec to identify vulnerabilities. IT Ops then receives a spreadsheet of vulnerabilities, and must manually try to determine what resources are affected, prioritize resources to fix, then remediate them.
This leads to delays and negatively impacts the ability to reduce vulnerabilities present in your systems, leaving your organization exposed to potential risks for longer than necessary and the potential for hefty financial losses.
The Rapid7 InsightVM (or Nexpose) integration with Puppet Remediate enables IT organizations to address vulnerabilities faster. InfoSec runs scans with Rapid7, but instead of manually exporting the results into spreadsheets and emailing them, IT Ops can access read-only live scan data automatically in Puppet Remediate. IT Ops can quickly filter, prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities in a standardized, trackable, and easily auditable way.
InsightVM, Rapid7’s leading vulnerability risk management solution, enables you to gain clarity into the risk across your ecosystem, extend security’s influence across traditionally siloed teams, and see shared progress. InsightVM, powered by the Insight cloud, gives you visibility into not only the risk in your local, remote, cloud, containerized, and virtual infrastructure, but also which vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited in the wild and how that risk translates to business impact. With this deeper understanding of risk, you can remediate more effectively and track and report on the progress most impactful to your organization.
Nexpose is Rapid7’s on-premises option for vulnerability risk management. Nexpose monitors exposures in real time and adapts to new threats with fresh data, ensuring you can always act before the moment of impact.
Puppet Remediate helps reduce security risks and your organization’s exposure to data breaches by eliminating manual handovers in the vulnerability management process, from scan to find and fix vulnerabilities. It enables you to reduce the number of vulnerabilities present on your infrastructure and the time spent remediating them.
