Incident Remediation

With the proliferation of high-profile hacks, data breaches, and ransomware, it’s easy to feel insecure about your organization’s security. You have to protect your company like never before — particularly as your infrastructure grows and diversifies, presenting a broader surface for attackers.

Too many issues to fix and not enough time

How do you keep up with an ever-changing cybersecurity landscape? Adopting DevOps practices and automation is critical. It’s now a necessity to deal with this increased complexity rather than just a nice-to-have.

  • CVEs have more than doubled since 2016
  • IT infrastructure grew 47.2% year over year
  • Data breaches increased 424% in 2018
  • Cost of an attack increased to $3.92M over the last five years

 

Protect your company’s reputation with quick remediation

There are many tools designed to find and alert on issues, whether through security scanners, break-fix, or monitoring triggers. Finding them doesn’t remediate the vulnerability. The risk in your expanding environment isn’t reducing — unless you can remediate risks in an automated, repeatable way.

Overcome communication barriers between Dev, Sec and Ops

DevOps and InfoSec teams sometimes have different goals — delivering software to the business on time and on budget versus reducing your organization’s risk profile. They don’t need to be mutually exclusive. Instead of communicating through spreadsheets and incident tickets, automate the handover of prioritized vulnerability data so that action can be taken quickly and painlessly.

We had a manual process to remediate vulnerabilities. When scans were complete, we got a report and remediated them manually with the scripts we have. It worked for us, but not the Auditor — we failed an audit three times. With Puppet, we now have a repeatable process and we’re passing audits.

Reduce your surface attack area

Bad actors attack what you have, not what you think you have. You need to understand what’s running in your infrastructure in order to make decisions around decommissioning unneeded resources or prioritizing what to fix first. With contextual information, take action on what really matters. See how Puppet Remediate can simplify and reduce the hours spent remediating vulnerable packages and services.

Harden your resources to comply with security standards

Standardize your technology stack and reduce variation so there are fewer vulnerabilities to exploit. Do you have four different versions of Windows, all with different configurations? How many versions of Linux? The best defense is a good offense. Learn how Puppet Enterprise can proactively ensure that your systems meet security and regulatory standards and guidelines with continuous compliance.

Alert-based remediation with Splunk + Puppet

Puppet Enterprise can push events to Splunk Enterprise, which then alerts when drift is detected and corrected, while automatically alerting on-call staff.

Integrate with leading vulnerability assessment tools

Puppet Remediate integrates with the tools your InfoSec team use, eliminating the need for manual data handover.
