Using SAINT to Support IT Change Management – Critical Security Control for Continuous Vulnerability Assessment and Remediation

SAINT is invaluable in identifying weakness and providing details for analysis in that process, as well as initiating remediation for noted weaknesses. SAINT ensures that the change management process is effective in identifying issues by ensuring that weaknesses are corrected and validated prior to their deployment into production."

Had SAINT not been used for assessments, the work would take a significant number of man-hours. SAINT often enables our technical staff the ability to provide an initial assessment in less than an hour, sometimes within minutes, of SAINT completing its scan."

— Steven Narro, IT Phenoms, Inc.

The University of Texas at Austin Information Security Office is using SAINTmanager to protect sensitive data on their network.

"Using a centralized authentication and authorization mechanism, technical staff members have the ability to log into the SAINTmanager system and scan only the networks for which they are responsible.

Feedback from the technical staff on campus has been positive, and several groups regularly scan their networks for vulnerabilities using scheduled scans.  The ISO uses the SAINT system as its primary network vulnerability tool for risk assessments, PCI compliance assessments, system profiling, and network-wide vulnerability sweeps."

RavenEye security engineers use SAINT to perform vulnerability assessments and penetration tests for businesses of all shapes and sizes across the United States.

SAINT is a critical tool utilized by RavenEye to stay up-to-date on vulnerability checks that are added regularly to the SAINT database.
As a regular practice, RavenEye security engineers carry a laptop with SAINT installed so that the tool may be used when visiting different environments. Because of the variety of systems and software assessed, SAINT is extremely valuable for easily identifying any potential vulnerabilities and exploits.
SAINT support has been of the highest quality for RavenEye. The support team is always available to answer questions and troubleshoot when issues arise. Even more importantly, the updates to and development of the SAINT tool are frequent to ensure current vulnerability checks and relevant features that are necessary for a penetration testing practice.
Because of the positive experiences with SAINT Corporation and its products, RavenEye recently instituted a managed scanning service to provide on-demand remote scanning services. The SAINTmanager allows RavenEye to manage remote nodes installed in the client environment and produce efficient reporting for their vulnerability assessment needs.
RavenEye enthusiastically recommends SAINT and its products for anyone seeking efficient solutions for vulnerability assessment and penetration testing.
