Vulnerability Lifecycle Management

Vulnerability Lifecycle Management enables clients to seamlessly manage the vulnerability remediation process. Clients are able to save time and reduce the number of tedious tasks associated with vulnerability remediation. Delivered as a feature of the ActiveGuard® services platform, all NTT Security Managed Security Services (MSS) clients have access to Vulnerability Lifecycle Management through the ActiveGuard Portal.

Flexible Scanning Options

Clients can choose to self-administer vulnerability scans with direct command and control for the three leading vulnerability scanners that are built-in or they can choose to have our Security Operations Center (SOC) manage the process for them. In addition to the built-in scanners, Vulnerability Lifecycle Management also supports other leading vulnerability scanners.

PCI Compliant Workflow

ActiveGuard Vulnerability Lifecycle Management is fully compliant with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) to support PCI compliance and increase the efficiency of compliance efforts.

Add Context to Security Data

Scan results feed into ActiveGuard for automatic threat correlation with the NTT Security Log Monitoring service. Adding context to security data allows NTT Security to determine the severity of potential threats, reducing false positives and increasing clients’ level of security. In addition to the automated tools in ActiveGuard, security analysts in the SOC also view the vulnerability data to get a more detailed picture of a system’s susceptibility to a particular attack.

  • Integration with third-party scanners
  • PCI-compliant workflow
