Challenges

  • Lack of reliability regarding the outcome since the scan items were unable to be customized in detail.
  • Purchasing a license to scan multiple servers was not possible due to the high price.
  • In the case of foreign tools, reports needed to be modified before submitting to clients since English was partially mixed even if Japanese patches were applied.
  • Manual scans by developers resulted in inconsistent quality of assessment across the department since scan results varied depending on individual skills.

Benefits

  • The reliability of scan results has been highly increased due to the ability to customize the parameters of scan items, giving developers more confidence in the results.
  • Vex enables them to scan multiple servers seamlessly.
  • Vex's extensive report options allows them to submit reports to clients without additional work for modifying them.
  • They are now able to objectively prove to clients that "this result will be obtained no matter who does the test" based on the proper standards.
