Cybreye evaluates using vendor and industry standards. The security assessment checks are used to identify deltas in the scope, asset configurations and services.


The security audit phase answers the question:


Will weaknesses discovered during the security assessment negatively impact an IP asset's ability to comply with vendor or industry standards?


Weaknesses detected during the security assessment are filtered and suppressed providing this does not have direct bearing on the vendor or industry standard compliance is measured to.


It is important to note that organization specific standards can be created per customer. The security audit then becomes specific to the organization’s IT values e.g. OS build standard or IT Security Policy.
