The multiannual collaboration of PRIORITY’s consultants with IT professionals, has highlighted two interrelated challenges, which are coming to overload their daily duties. These two challenges concern the monitoring of IT infrastructure in combination with potential security gaps, vulnerabilities and risks. Until now, the accessible solution was to collect and record logs and perform penetration tests. Both of these solutions, however, suffer from serious drawbacks. Reading and understanding of logs requires special knowledge, consumes valuable time and usually the investigation results in incorrect results due to the volume of information or the lack of some data. Penetration Tests give valid results but concern a specific time and a small subset of IT infrastructure.
Having the above data as a guide, Priority established a partnership with Rapid7(https://www.rapid7.com/), one of the world’s leading companies in the field of cybersecurity. Organizations can now have a real-time picture of the state of infrastructure through a user-friendly environment. The collection of events and logs is done automatically and the information is displayed in a clear and understandable way. Rapid7 bridges three different areas:
The platforms are fully customizable in order to cover all possible scenarios and provide the ability of taking automated corrective actions.
