Through ongoing security audits and penetration testing exercises with Plante Moran, Jim understood the impact even minor security gaps could have on Independent Bank. As he searched for a risk-based vulnerability management solution, TARA was an obvious choice as it could ingest existing scan data and deliver a risk context.
To meet the needs of Independent Bank, TARA leverages threat intelligence from the dark web and applies machine learning to predict the potential impact each vulnerability will have on the environment. Findings are ranked on a scale of 0-1000 and any vulnerability scoring 650 or above is prioritized for immediate remediation. TARA provides risk insights that do not exist with traditional scanning solutions.
