Attack surfaces are expanding faster than ever, with cloud and hybrid environments becoming the new normal. While these agile environments have huge benefits for the business, security teams struggle to keep up in securing and auditing new infrastructure.
CAST human operators act as an extension of the security team. They perform continuous penetration tests, flag issues that need to be investigated and do the hard work of determining whether potential findings pose a real risk to a client’s network. CAST team members work with security practitioners in real time to describe issues in detail and give actionable remediation guidance. They make all their work transparent and accessible through the CAST portal. Clients can review all their issues in a single location and see trending metrics and a proof of concept for each critical vulnerability – without the noise and frustration of attempting to decipher scan results.
The stories below from select clients highlight the benefits of this collaboration – and how CAST allows client security teams to direct their attention to the most threatening issues to the organization.
Remediating a Deserialization Vulnerability
When a PHP deserialization vulnerability became an issue for a large agricultural manufacturing client, CAST team members investigated the vulnerable vector, determined whether it posed a significant risk to the client’s network, and delivered actionable remediation guidance that helped the client’s IT Department prioritize the fix.
De-escalating a Remote Code Execution Vulnerability
CAST team members work with security practitioners in real time to flag vulnerabilities that pose a significant risk to their organizations. For a media conglomerate faced with dozens of potential threats every day, CAST eliminates unnecessary noise so the security team can focus on the issues that really matter. Such was the case with the Microsoft SMBGhost vulnerability. By researching the potential impact to the client’s network and determining that there was no cause for alarm, the CAST team was able to allay fears and save the client’s security team valuable time.
