Exploiting vulnerabilities is a major initial access vector for threat actors and ransomware-based attacks. Trustwave has seen a significant increase in successful malware attacks in recent months where exploited vulnerabilities could have been detected through routine vulnerability assessments. Trustwave encourages organizations that handle sensitive data to conduct regular vulnerability assessments to optimize risk management and close security gaps across the business.

“We congratulate Trustwave in achieving CREST accreditation for Vulnerability Assessment (VA) to add to its existing accreditations for penetration testing,” said Rowland Johnson, president of CREST. “Trustwave has established a strong reputation in the industry, and this latest independent validation of its VA skills, processes and methodologies, further demonstrates the company’s commitment to deliver the highest level of trusted services to help organizations measure, manage and remediate their security risks.”

Vulnerability assessments are automated assessments aimed at identifying and quantifying known security vulnerabilities within an environment to provide an estate-wide view of an organization’s security posture, its weaknesses, as well as provide risk remediation. Combining regular vulnerability assessment with the Trustwave Fusion Platform allows continued management of assets that can then be used to further mature your penetration testing.
