Mythbusting: Hey I got it covered! We already have a vulnerability scanning tool
A common misconception I hear is that most organizations already have a vulnerability management solution in place. And this already scans their storage & backup layers.
While existing vulnerability management solutions scan everything from the operating system to the network, they offer almost no coverage for storage, storage management, or backup systems.
If intrusion and data monitoring tools don’t map devices to servers, or monitor deleted snapshots and policy changes, attackers can easily modify or steal data – without leaving a trace.
The main message here is to double-check with your existing vulnerability management vendor, to ensure they have broad coverage of your storage & backup systems. If they don’t, then look for a vendor that understands storage & backup, and can help you fill this gap.
Now’s the time to get visibility of your security blind-spots.
