Visibility: Get a complete view of your assets and security threats

In a rapidly changing IT environment, the first key challenge for any IT or security executive is to obtain better visibility, including visibility into devices and the cloud. With the consumerization of IT obtaining a clear understanding of which assets are on your network is a critical component of your IT and security strategy. Each asset should be governed by a clear policy. These policies are often a combination of industry benchmarks (e.g. FDCC, USGCB, CIS Benchmarks, and DISA STIGS) or by internal best practices.

Nexpose allows you to conduct full security configuration assessments to ensure potential security threats such as misconfigurations are easily identified. You can:

  • Automatically discover and inventory your physical and virtual assets into logical categories.
  • Identify misconfigurations and policy violations in addition to vulnerabilities and exposure to malware with a single scan.
  • Gain real-time view of your assets, regardless of changes that happen, and be aware of assets that come online.
  • Detect key security threats and map those back to your mission-critical assets.
