Arctic Wolf Managed Risk
Arctic Wolf® Managed Risk enables you to discover, assess, and harden your environment against digital risks by contextualising your attack surface coverage across your networks, endpoints, and cloud environments.
Concierge-Led Managed Risk Experience
Managed Prioritisation and Personalised Protection Delivered by Your Concierge Security® Team
The Concierge Security Team is a force multiplier to your existing security team. If you don’t have a security team, you gain instant access to security professionals that are otherwise difficult, if not impossible to find.
Your named Concierge Security engineer works with you to prioritise vulnerabilities discovered from networks, endpoints, and cloud environments.
Then the Concierge Security Team contextualises your attack surface coverage with risk policies, asset criticalities, and SLOs (service level objectives). This contextualisation enables you to prepare your environment to end cyber risk.
Once we have that perspective, the Concierge Security Team assesses and provides you with the risk priorities in your environment.
They then advise you on your remediation actions to ensure you are benchmarking against configuration best practises and continually hardening your security posture.
Benefits of Managed Risk
Managed Risk Addresses the Most Critical Cybersecurity Challenges
Most vulnerability scanners miss digital risks beyond software defects, like system misconfigurations and corporate credential exposure.
Too Many Alerts
The sheer volume of vulnerabilities, both detected and exploited, is increasing sharply. IT and security teams are becoming overwhelmed by too many alerts and not enough context.
Limited Asset Visibility
If you can’t see it, you can’t protect it. Yet, most organisations are unable to accurately account for assets in their environment. This leads to gaps in posture that leave the door open to attackers.
The action variety of Exploit vulnerability is up to 7% of breaches this year, doubling from last year. - - - - - -
Data Breaches in Review for 2022
Discover the Risks that traditional tools miss
Product-based vulnerability scanners miss digital risks that are not specifically software defects.
Organisations need visibility into other attack vectors and sources of risk. In addition to software vulnerabilities, Arctic Wolf Managed Risk addresses corporate credential exposure and system misconfigurations for a more robust view into your digital risk.
How it Works
The Arctic Wolf Managed Risk Process
Our team will work with you to deploy the Arctic Wolf Platform, integrate critical data points, and build an understanding of your network.
Gain clear understanding and visibility into your attack surface by establishing asset context and a vulnerability baseline.
The Active Vulnerability Management Cycle phase is a steady state and continuous cycle aimed at providing proper coverage, prioritising risks, hardening of your environment, and ensuring mitigation efforts are successful.

Installation and Integration
In the installation and integration phase, Arctic Wolf configures and validates the environment, and makes reports available for the internal, external, and agent-based scanners as well as Cloud Security Posture Management.
Begin the proactive Managed Risk security process with your Concierge Security Team where we learn about your environments, policies, procedures, patching cycles, service level objectives (SLOs), and more to gain a better understanding of your attack surface.
Identity and Coverage Resolution
Your Concierge Security Team delivers your overall vulnerability management programme context, providing insight on your current device and network coverage, as well as identity issues within the environment. We provide recommendations to fix the coverage issues and ensure we have completed coverage of your entire attack surface.
Define and Configure Asset Context
Next, Arctic Wolf provides an initial critical asset list. This list is reviewed with you to identify any gaps. We then recommend asset criticalities, workflow, and organization tagging to make your environment more contextualised.
Threat Landscape and Prioritization Review
Finally, Arctic Wolf provides you with tailored risk prioritization according to asset and risk context on your overall attack surface so you can begin patch management.
Active Vulnerability Management Lifecycle
4 ongoing phases
The goal of the Active Vulnerability Management Cycle is to ensure proper coverage, provide prioritization of risks, allow us to consult as the customer is hardening their environment, and ensure the mitigation efforts are successful. It is accomplished through 4 sub-phases that are continuously cycled through.
Digital Risk by the Numbers
The growing attack surface compounds cyber risks for organisations. The implementation of new digital initiatives, the adoption of the Internet of Things (IoT), and the continued move to the cloud help drive innovation—but at the cost of increased exposure to threats. Risk management solutions are becoming the norm to combat this issue.
40% of mid-size enterprises have a formal vulnerability management programme in place:
60% of IT risk management roles predicted to become dependant on risk management solutions to aggregate digital risks in their business ecosystems by 2025:
Implementing the Center for Internet Security’s (CIS) top five critical security controls can prevent 80% of the most common cyber attacks:
Gartner predicts that through 2025, more than 99% of cloud breaches will be traced back to preventable misconfigurations or mistakes by end users. - - - - - - -
Cloud Security Posture Management Extends Managed Risk to the Cloud
The cloud is the new frontier in business IT—and in cyber risk.
Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM) extends Arctic Wolf Managed Risk to this new frontier, providing cloud asset auditing, environment benchmarking, plus posture hardening and remediation guidance.
The Most Exploited Vulnerabilities of 2022
According to the National Vulnerability Database (NVD), there were more than 25,200 vulnerabilities published in 2022. Join us as we explore the 34 most high-profile vulnerabilities–and what makes them so dangerous.
