Unlike the more architectural pieces of your framework, like firewalls and network security, which may seem like higher priorities, vulnerability management is a process that makes all other cyberdefences work more effectively.
Arguably, it’s the most important piece of all, but let’s be clear, it doesn’t eliminate vulnerabilities.
What it does give you is the ability to know they exist, prioritise them and address them in the most appropriate way.
Vulnerability management gives you a process and the tools to regularly identify and remediate
your most critical and high-risk vulnerabilities
It’s an ongoing process across endpoints, workloads and systems that assesses any weakness in an
asset or group of assets that can be exploited by one or more threats. Once identified, threats can
be prioritised and remediated to defend against breaches.
Here we take a look at trending topics, provide useful insights and technologies that solve everyday
problems around the vulnerability security process.
