Greenbone Networks was founded by leading experts for network security and free software in 2008. The company is headquartered in Osnabrück, Germany. Today our solutions are at work all over the world.
Greenbone offers an open-source solution for vulnerability analysis and management – the Greenbone Security Manager (Greenbone Security Manager). It identifies security risks in corporate IT, assesses their risk potential and recommends actions. The goal is to prevent attacks by targeting precautionary measures. Greenbone Security Manager is the perfect complement to reactive security tools like firewall & Co.
With Vulnerability Management, you’re looking at your IT infrastructure from the outside – just like a potential attacker would. The aim is to locate any vulnerability that might exist in your IT infrastructure.
Vulnerability management greatly reduces the weak points that are manifest in any company IT. In addition, VM assists other IT security solutions (IDS/IPS and firewall solutions) in focusing on the actual hot spots. It provides information on the most critical weak points and prioritizes them according to SCAP-standards and company-specific parameters. Afterwards, these security flaws are eliminated or mitigated in compliance with critical corporate processes. Ideally, vulnerability management is integrated into a far-reaching security policy.
