Third party breaches have become a common occurrence in the last year. From Target to Home Depot and Goodwill, major organizations have been compromised from vulnerabilities present in their extended network ecosystems. Compounding fears surrounding third party vulnerabilities, the last year has also seen no less than three major security flaws affecting basic internet protocols. The first two, Heartbleed and Bash, grabbed media headlines and left businesses scrambling to ensure they weren't left vulnerable. Just this week, another major security flaw dubbed Poodle was uncovered by security researchers. This bug affects SSL v3, a widely used protocol to secure communications over the internet. With growing concern about third party security and the seemingly neverending revelations of internet bugs, organizations are left wondering how they can better gain visibility into the vulnerability of their third parties when it comes to basic configuration hygiene.
