To put it simply, IT Asset Management is a collection of business practices that integrate IT assets within the company across the business units. It combines the roles of operational, production, contractual, and risk management in managing the overall life cycle of these assets including tactical and strategic decision making.
IT Asset Management is an undertaking that provides substantial and measurable benefits for short, medium, and long-term needs and objectives. Trained IT Asset Management experts have the opportunity to implement best practices that give the company real value, whether it is facing software audit or planning for a merger.
The technology exists at every step within the average work environment. Desktop computers with displays or laptops can be found in every office or work area along with a smartphone and VoIP phone, along with a host of software titles. You can find networked printers, copiers, scanners, fax machines, and servers just a short distance away. Perhaps your organization has adopted Cloud services in hopes of reducing costs and risks.
Technology performs most of the work every day for the company and, more importantly, relies on it for the clients, yet the value of this technology is taken for granted and, however, its management is overlooked and misunderstood. The truth is that this technology fuels the company and represents a significant investment, and is vital to the revenue stream.

Vulnerability scanning is an essential foundational security control and vital for every organization. Cyber attacks such as WannaCry and Petya, left many asking the question: How can we stay safely ahead of the next threat?
Using our services you will be able to ensure that any known vulnerabilities can be identified within your IT infrastructure before they are exploited.
“99% of the vulnerabilities exploited by the end of 2020 will continue to be ones known by security and IT professionals at the time of the incident” – Gartner
GIBS identifies known vulnerabilities within software and configuration settings before they can be exploited by a cyber-attack. Vulnerability Tracker continuously tests and assesses your IT network and any device connected to it against thousands of Vulnerability Scans.
New vulnerabilities are added daily through various content providers and industry trusted resources which include CVE and Bugtraq alerts, aggregate compliance rulesets, controls for scan agents and embedded NMAP NSE test routines.
Web application security testing is always among the most importance for Businesses and firms today as all Web applications are in primary radar of attackers.
The reasons are :
- Always presented to the Internet and simple to test by outside attackers utilizing unreservedly accessible devices that search for basic vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection.
- Less demanding to assault than customary targets, for example, the network and host operating system layers which have been solidified after some time.
- Driven by short improvement cycles that expansion the likelihood of design and coding errors — in light of the fact that security is regularly disregarded when the key goal is quick time-to-advertise.
- Assembled from hybrid code acquired from a blend of in-house advancement, outsourced code, outsider libraries and open source — without visibility into which segments contain basic vulnerabilities.
To stay ahead of risks in the application Security layer, Organizations these days are looking for cyber security solutions providers for web application security testing services and solutions.
Web Application Security services are aimed at protecting apps from security issues during the development process. Creation of an application generally involves five processes. It begins with design, development, deployment and ends at upgrade and maintenance. At each of these processes, the Web Application Security Audit service provided by eSec Forte makes sure that any security issues and glitches are detected and prevented at possible early stages.
Optimize Your Database with Our Expert Recommendations
GIBS database assessment and health check services will enable you to execute your plans for success with precision and confidence.
In any company, a baseline is an important starting point for all parties to agree upon and shape future plans. GIBS database assessment is that baseline.
Because of the breadth of work that GIBS senior-level database administrators perform on a daily basis, they are ideal experts at leading the effort to conduct a detailed database health check of your SQL Server, Oracle, Oracle E-Business Suite, MySQL, DB2, MongoDB or PostgreSQL environment.
Whether you have a small environment that can be assessed in one day or a large complex environment that requires a team of experts diving into the details for months, GIBS can provide key insights, short- and long-term database recommendations, optimization opportunities and information on alternative database approaches to your environment.
Before launch of an assessment or health check, discovery interviews are conducted to connect with any staff involved in the design and implementation of any changes in the database environment. During this phase, GIBS reviews:
- Current environment details, such as usage peaks and valleys, concurrent sessions, index usage, etc.
- Backup and fault tolerance strategy
- Platform and hardware details
- Information on supported applications
- Security measures
- Recent problem history
- Running of database tools and scripts to analyze data and report on blockage, I/O contention, offending queries, long-running queries, etc.
A penetration test, also called a pen test, is a simulated cyber attack on your computer system to check for bugs that can be exploited. Penetration testing is typically used to supplement a web application firewall (WAF) in the sense of protection for web applications.
Pen testing can involve the attempted breaching of any number of application systems, (e.g., application protocol interfaces (APIs), frontend/backend servers) to uncover vulnerabilities, such as unsanitized inputs that are susceptible to code injection attacks.
Insights provided by the penetration test can be used to fine-tune your WAF security policies and patch detected vulnerabilities.
Planning and reconnaissance
The first stage involves:
- Defining the scope and goals of a test, including the systems to be addressed and the testing methods to be used.
- Gathering intelligence (e.g., network and domain names, mail server) to better understand how a target works and its potential vulnerabilities.
The next step is to understand how the target application will respond to various intrusion attempts. This is typically done using:
- Static analysis – Inspecting an application’s code to estimate the way it behaves while running. These tools can scan the entirety of the code in a single pass.
- Dynamic analysis – Inspecting an application’s code in a running state. This is a more practical way of scanning, as it provides a real-time view into an application’s performance.
This stage uses web application attacks, such as cross-site scripting, SQL injection and backdoors, to uncover a target’s vulnerabilities. Testers then try and exploit these vulnerabilities, typically by escalating privileges, stealing data, intercepting traffic, etc., to understand the damage they can cause.
The goal of this stage is to see if the vulnerability can be used to achieve a persistent presence in the exploited system— long enough for a bad actor to gain in-depth access. The idea is to imitate advanced persistent threats, which often remain in a system for months in order to steal an organization’s most sensitive data.
The results of the penetration test are then compiled into a report detailing:
- Specific vulnerabilities that were exploited
- Sensitive data that was accessed
- The amount of time the pen tester was able to remain in the system undetected
This information is analyzed by security personnel to help configure an enterprise’s WAF settings and other application security solutions to patch vulnerabilities and protect against future attacks.
Cyber threats are becoming a constant problem for IT security personnel nowadays, it supports having some guidelines or at least knowing what to look for. You need to be aware of these approaches as a small company doing business on the internet, so that you can be extra vigilant while online.
Threats originate from the below issues within the organisation or externally.
Employee theft can be characterized as any stealing, utilize or abuse of business benefit without permission.
Weak access control:
Weak access control means the system is very weedy in a 3A (Authentication, Authorization, Accounting) security model and security process that controls use of particular assets inside of a predefined criteria.
The peoples with rights who have extensive access to the resources of an organization might abuse it to satisfy their requirements or to destroy the organization reputation.
Equipment failure refers to any occasion in which any equipment can’t complete its intended task or reason. It can also mean that the hardware has stopped working.
It refers to power surges and spikes which causes the electronic equipment to fail.
