Being proactive about security means more than just conducting frequent security assessments of your enterprise assets. Staying secure is ultimately dependent on proper remediation and risk mitigation. Just one problem: We all know that incorporating the remediation lifecycle into IT teams’ existing workflows can be a steep, uphill battle. Integrating Rapid7 InsightVM* with Atlassian Jira levels the ground by automatically creating tasks when new vulnerabilities are discovered and giving operations managers the ability to assign tickets to the correct remediation teams. By combining InsightVM’s remediation projects with Jira, you now have the ability to report on which tickets have been successfully closed and track the progress of various remediation initiatives—live.
InsightVM assesses the risk posture of the systems within your organization, typically through a scan or agent-based assessment. This vulnerability data is then processed for each host within the Insight platform. Next, an InsightVM remediation project defines the scope of what needs to be fixed, by when, and by whom; for example, critical Windows vulnerabilities in your east coast datacenter can be assigned to the specific Windows admin who owns those systems. Jira profiles allow tickets to be automatically created and assigned to the right people based on metadata from assets, vulnerabilities, and owners, so that remediators only get instructions relevant to them; once tickets are closed, the remediation project is updated to show that the vulnerability has been marked fixed, and InsightVM confirms the fix on the next scan. The takeaway here? No more chucking thousand-page reports over the fence and hoping for resolution.
