Vulnerability and Compliance Management

Modern information security standards (such as PCI DSS, ISO 27001, etc.) call for the systematic monitoring of vulnerabilities and non-Compliance, across the corporate infrastructure. A Vulnerability and Compliance Management (VCM) program provides metrics to senior management in order to far better utilize the people, processes and technologies and provide stronger security.

  • Compliance Monitoring: monitor if the infrastructure (servers, networks, applications) is configured according to the corporate standards, assess password complexity and strength, document open ports and services, etc.
  • Vulnerability Scanning: scan the infrastructure for known vulnerabilities (and variants of known vulnerabilities), identify missing patches, open ports and unnecessary running services.
  • Reporting and Analytics: gain ‘rich picture’ of the corporate security posture as well as detailed information for ‘C’ Level executives, Directors/Senior Managers and Administrators/Operational Managers, monthly trending of vulnerabilities and non-compliance per geography, side by side comparison of vulnerabilities and non-compliance per geography, etc.

PKI Consulting

The provision of Certification Services is more than just the software of the solution, the personnel maintaining the solution and the technical infrastructure. The recognition and the trust of a Certification Services Provider depend on the internal policies and procedures the provider is implementing.
Policies and procedures are internal and confidential documents of the organization which describe the operations of the Certification Services Provider, and are critical input for an internal or external audit. An indicative list of these documents includes the Certificate Policy (CP), the Certificate Practice Statement (CPS), the Key Management Security Plan, the Key Management Policy, etc.
As a founding member of the VeriSign’s Trust Network and a VeriSign Affiliate since 1998, ADACOM has a vast experience in similar engagements and provides expert PKI consulting for developing the necessary policies for a Certificate Services Provider.


gTLD Consulting

Generic top-level domains (gTLD) is the technical term for the suffixes extension of three or more characters which appear at the end of Internet addresses. They are part of the structure that forms the Internet’s global addressing system, or domain-name system (DNS), and are used to route traffic through the Internet.
The .COM .EDU .GOV .INT .MIL .NET .ORG. gTLDs already existed before the formal establishment of ICANN as an organization. Thereafter ICANN hold two application rounds, one in 2000 and another in 2003-4, where several proposals were submitted and evaluated. The gTLDs approved during the 2000 round are: .AERO .BIZ .COOP .INFO .MUSEUM .NAME .PRO while the gTLDs approved during the 2004 round are .ASIA .CAT .JOBS .MOBI .TEL .TRAVEL.
The new gTLD program (“.brand”), introduced by ICANN at late 2009, will change the way people find information on the Internet and how businesses plan and structure their online presence. New gTLDs have been in the forefront of ICANN’s agenda since their creation.
The new gTLD program open up the top level of the Internet’s namespace to foster diversity, encourage competition, and enhance the utility of the DNS.
Soon corporations and other entities can own their domain name extension. One of the most significant benefits of domain name ownership will be nearly unlimited availability of generic key words for creating unique, branded domain names.
A lot of Corporate/Marketing benefits exist attached to “.brand” top level domains (gTLDs):

  • Enables the creation of succinct URLs to drive on-line response
  • The entire domain name can promote the brand
  • Access a nearly unlimited number of generic keyword domains
  • Improve SEO
  • Create and deploy URLs in real-time
  • Apply URL version testing and modify immediately to deliver optimum results

Each of the gTLDs has a designated “registry operator” according to a Registry Agreement between the operator and ICANN. The registry operator is responsible for the technical operation of the TLD, including all of the names registered in that TLD. The new gTLD program will create a means for prospective registry operators to apply for new gTLDs, and create new options for consumers in the market. Any public or private organization can apply to create and operate a new gTLD providing that applicants for new gTLDs will meet very specific operational and technical criteria in order to preserve the security and stability of the Internet.
