India’s Tata Communications has announced the global availability of its Vulnerability Management Service, which is a part of its managed security services suite and is built upon QualysGuard vulnerability management and compliance services.
According to the company, its Vulnerability Management Service (VMS) provides discovery and mapping of IT assets, asset prioritization, vulnerability assessment, remediation tracking, and comprehensive reporting. The service automates the process of enterprise vulnerability management and supports policy compliance initiatives.
The company said that IT organizations are driven by the need to comply with regulatory, statutory, industry, and internal requirements such as PCI DSS, SB1386, HIPPA, Sarbanes Oxley, and the EU Data Privacy Directive. Achieving and maintaining compliance with these requirements demands that these organizations institute ongoing vulnerability assessment and remediation procedures to ensure efforts are made to protect data and business processes.
Tata Communications’ VMS enables IT security and system administration staff to overcome the complexities and information management and focus on the remediation tasks that require business and technical judgment.
John Landau, senior vice president of global managed services for Tata Communications, said: “Tata Communications’ VMS enables organizations to patch at a reduced cost of ownership. The service allows customers to offload the grinding technical and operational aspects of vulnerability management while retaining control over the actual remediation process.”
