Add Value While Generating Revenue Or Cutting Cost
MSPs and companies that do their own IT both need to perform regular vulnerability scans to protect their networks. MSP’s are challenged because most of their clients don’t want to pay for it. Internal IT pros face the same obstacles when attempting to get huge, ongoing line-item budget approvals from corporate finance.
VulScan by RapidFire Tools solves these problems. It’s priced so you can deploy a scanner on lots of small or large networks at one low monthly cost. The built-in automation and false-positive management tools keep the labor cost of running scans low enough to perform regularly scheduled basic vulnerability scans.
It’s a tremendous competitive value-added differentiator…and you can use the issues detected and alerts generated as the ammo you need to justify the charge or spend.
Leverage Vulnerability Scanning to Identify the Need For Additional Programs
Running vulnerability scans is the easy and inexpensive part. But what about the high cost of correcting the deficiencies you discover?
If you stay on top of things, VulScan’s trend reporting will show you where you need to make systemic adjustments to harden your network and make you a tougher target for cyber criminals.
Use the trend data to explain to clients or exec team that regular vulnerability scans are identifying ongoing and/or persistent vulnerabilities that need to be corrected. Use that data as leverage to further increase spending in other areas, such as:
Deploying mitigating measures (technical or procedural) if the system cannot be immediately patched (e.g., operating system upgrade will make the application running on top of the OS inoperable), in order to minimize the probability of this system being compromised.
Improving configuration management programs and procedures to ensure systems are upgraded routinely.
Assigning a staff member to monitor vulnerability alerts and initiate appropriate system changes.
Modifying security policies, architecture or other documentation to ensure security practices include timely system updates and upgrades.
If your client or executive team decline your recommendations, explain to them you can’t be responsible for any breach if the critical vulnerabilities that your scans discover are not addressed.
Generate Vulnerability Assessment Reports with Network Detective Pro
Each time you run a scan, the data automatically and seamlessly becomes available to Network Detective Pro, which can turn the data into meaningful reports you can share with your management team or client stakeholders.
The reports are professionally designed and can be branded with your information, colors and logo. In addition to full detail reports which you can save and archive as evidence of compliance to a wide range of IT security standards — Network Detective Pro will also generate an easy-to-read summary report highlighting critical issues you’ve addressed.
Use Network Detective Pro’s other IT assessment reports to automatically document all users, assets and issues — plus any changes over time — across every network you manage.
