An American Oil & Gas Leader witnessed an 80% reduction in the attack surface by leveraging YASH Vulnerability Management Services (VMS)
The client is a US-based Oil and Gas leader with over 50 years of experience delivering best-in-class safety, quality, and efficiency. It is a premier provider of maintenance and mechanical construction services to heavy industrial industries, including chemical processing and manufacturing, petroleum refining, and oil & gas production and transmission.
The client’s systems were infiltrated with an attack, spreading across branch offices owing to inadequate patching. The client’s system footprint was widespread, with multiple Applications, Servers, Databases, Network Devices, Source codes, etc. The company was struggling to remediate its milieu of vulnerabilities. Some of the challenges it faced included:
An intricate IT landscape
Frequent attacks followed by audits
Managing the security posture
Vulnerabilities across all devices and applications
No control or visibility into its assets and services due to IT silos
Gaps in the risk management process
Potential/perceived data loss along with increasing budgets
YASH successfully analyzed its system with a focused- Assess, Isolate and Remediate (AIR) approach. YASH implemented its Vulnerability Management Solution (VMS) designed to help businesses identify, prioritize, and remediate vulnerabilities across their IT environment, supported by our tactical and strategic steps, resourcing, and cost strategies.
YASH VMS provided an end-to-end approach and steered the complete VM program covering:
Detection of vulnerability findings
Vulnerability Assessment and risk profiling
Planning and security management
Executive briefing to seek stakeholder support and approval
Collaboration with the peer groups and reverify the closures
Applying modern breach detection process using “Breach and Attack Simulation (BAS)
Automation has further freed up clients’ valuable time and resources by eliminating skill set challenges. Our VMS allowed retention and historical database analysis to correlate new vulnerabilities automatically, derive risk scoring, and arrive at remediation faster, thus creating a solid knowledge base.
