The Challenges Of Risk Management
VA requires specialized knowledge and skills in security, networking, and software development. Non-security companies may not have the necessary expertise in-house to conduct a thorough and effective vulnerability assessment.
VA involves examining the systems and networks of an organization for vulnerabilities. These systems and networks may be complex, making it difficult to identify and assess all potential vulnerabilities.
Systems and networks are constantly evolving, and new vulnerabilities are being discovered all the time. This means that VA is an ongoing process that requires continuous monitoring and updating. Non-security companies may not have the resources or expertise to keep up with these constant changes.
VA can be a time-consuming and resource-intensive process, especially for larger organizations with complex systems and networks. Non-security companies may not have the resources or personnel dedicated to conducting a comprehensive vulnerability assessment.
CyStack Web Security (CWS) is a Security vulnerability scanning and monitoring for web applications developed by CyStack. It's built to simplify and automate the Vulnerability Assessment by focusing to:
CWS helps automatically scan vulnerabilities in the web applications and hosts that their owner may not have been aware of.
CWS helps organizations prioritize vulnerabilities based on their severity and potential impact. CVSS Score is an important tool supporting us in this task. This can help organizations prioritize their efforts to address the most critical vulnerabilities first.
CWS scans and detects vulnerabilities continuously to alert them when new risks are discovered. This can help organizations stay up-to-date and proactively address new vulnerabilities as they are identified.
CWS helps organizations track their progress in addressing vulnerabilities over time. This can help organizations ensure that they are making progress in mitigating the risk of a cyber attack.
Collecting information about a target tech stack, network, and infrastructure.
A technique used to discover vulnerabilities in software by inputting large amounts of random data, or 'fuzz', into the software in an attempt to cause it to crash or otherwise behave unexpectedly. CWS has implemented this technology to discover 0-day and unknown vulnerabilities in the target.
We continuously collect new CVE IDs, 1-day vulnerabilities, and exploited in-the-wild flaws from multi-trusted sources; then we write the PoC code for them and add them to the CWS
When testing a web application with an authenticated account, it is more likely to find vulnerabilities and access restricted areas of the site compared to testing without authentication. CWS offers two options for scanning behind login: Headers modification (Cookies and auth token) and Basic authentication
