Being proactive about security means more than just conducting frequent security assessments of your enterprise assets. The key to securing your organization comprehensively is mitigating the risk of vulnerabilities with proper remediation steps. But it’s a bit harder than it sounds: Security teams can have challenges communicating with their IT counterparts, who are responsible for actually applying remediation steps.
Integrating Rapid7 InsightVM with ServiceNow ITSM seamlessly folds remediation instructions into IT’s existing workflows by automatically opening tickets when new vulnerabilities are discovered, and closing tickets when those vulns are fixed. But it doesn’t stop there: Additionally, you can assign tickets to the correct teams, customize the level of detail included, report when they’re closed, and double-check they’ve been successfully remediated with subsequent scans. In short, track progress in real time, rather than wait to see if issues have been fixed in the next scan.

InsightVM conducts a scan to assess the risk posture of the systems within your organization. The vulnerability data is then processed for each host. Next, at periodic intervals, the ServiceNow ITSM connector queries InsightVM for the latest vulnerabilities; remediation tickets are either created or closed accordingly. In the case of the former, a ServiceNow ITSM Administrator can then assign the tickets to the proper teams for remediation.
