Eight applications have been executed that have a high CVSS score in relationship to the vulnerabilities identified during their runtime. 33.33% of them are exploitable and can be compromised with toolkits easily accessible for purchase or download. The solution is aware and records in its databases when the application was run, who executed it, what privileges where used, and then correlates the information to vulnerabilities and other metrics. All of this is available as dashboards and comprehensive reports within the solution. This perspective is more than the traditional phone book of vulnerabilities found. It is more than just controlling and metering application usage by system and user for privilege identity management. It is a new type of fusion for vulnerability and identity management that links real would user activity to the risk of the applications they operate on a daily basis. Whether the vulnerability is a zero day used in this example, or legacy vulnerability that just has never been patched, understanding the risk by user, permissions, system, and application provides superior guidance for remediation, mitigation, and exclusions than just a massive report of what was found during a scan. For more information of BeyondTrust and our solutions, please contact us. We would be honored to demonstrate how using this fusion of technology can simplify your security risk management processes.
