Astelit Dials Into a New, Powerful Vulnerability Management Service
Astelit, the Ukrainian GSM operator, is widely known for its life brand that serves 8.7 million contract and prepaid subscribers. Astelit was relying on open source vulnerability scanners to conduct periodic assessments. While the systems were maintained securely, there was no repeatable vulnerability management process. Astelit needed a more effective, repeatable, measurable vulnerability management program in place. Astelit chose QualysGuard Vulnerability Management to overcome these challenges. Astelit used QualysGuard to harden its Internet-facing Web applications and external perimeter. As those systems were completed, the security team turned its attention to its internal network. Through its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) delivery model, QualysGuard provides Astelit with the detailed network discovery and mapping, asset prioritization, vulnerability assessment reporting, and remediation tracking it needed.
