Vulnerability Management

The Power of Vulnerability Knowledge and Control

Vulnerability management is a core part of creating a proactive security program, letting you identify the holes that can be used during an attack and how to seal them up before a breach happens. But vulnerability management is more than just launching scans and finding vulnerabilities; you have to create processes around efficient remediation and ensure that the most critical items are being fixed first. What you do with the data after you get it is more important than simply collecting vulnerabilities.

You want to spend as little time as possible in spreadsheets and scanning interfaces so you can focus on what matters – fixing your vulnerabilities. A vulnerability management tool should make it easy to automate scans and get the right information to the right people – whether a CISO or a database administrator. As you grow your security program, you should also be able to easily feed your vulnerability data into other tools, increasing their intelligence and giving them a map of your vulnerability exposures.
