10 Reasons to Re-think Your Vulnerability Management
May 10th, 2016
The evolution of network computing environments has created a continuous stream of new attack vectors for adversaries to prey on. Businesses have to move quickly to respond to the needs of their customers. This often involves frequent changes like adding new systems and applications, as well as a constantly shifting user population. And as such, the use of technologies like web, mobile, cloud and virtualized platforms have become essential parts of a modern business strategy. Within this ever changing landscape, do you know where you are the most vulnerable?
Despite widespread deployment of solutions that aid in managing vulnerabilities, many security professionals still struggle with how to best protect their organizations, achieve compliance, and communicate risk enterprise-wide. Why? Is it because security teams are drowning in data? Do they lack automated tools to administer and validate security updates? Are they being blindsided by shadow applications and services running in their environments? Or maybe they’re trying to defend against 21st century attacks in isolation?
Probably not surprisingly the short answer is yes, yes, yes and oh yeah, yes. You’re not alone. Effectively managing vulnerabilities can be tough stuff! Check out our latest infographic to learn about ten reasons why it’s so challenging for the majority of organizations and why it might be time for you to do something different.

When working properly it can help us discover what’s connected to our networks, put context around what systems and applications are most at risk, eliminate and track threats over time, and communicate our progress to varied stakeholders across our organizations. Are you getting the most out of your vulnerability management program? If not, it’s time to rethink what you’re doing.
