How NSS Labs’ CAWS finds and fixes network threats
Vulnerability management works best when the limitations of cyber defenses can be located and fixed before an attacker is able to exploit them. Many vulnerability management programs take one aspect of that process, either managing known vulnerabilities or the penetration testing to find them, and stand up great tools around that. The CAWS Continuous Security Validation Platform from NSS Labs instead tackles the complete process, and does it in a way that doesn’t add any extra risk or drain to network resources.
At its core, CAWS is a testing lab dedicated to finding and fixing threats against networks. Customers who make use of the program can elect to use one of two flavors of the product, both of which could be tremendously helpful when planning defenses and trying to manage vulnerabilities.
