10 Reasons to Rethink Your Vulnerability Management

Retina CS – Enterprise Vulnerability Management

The evolution of network computing environments – including the increased use of mobile, cloud, and virtual infrastructure – has created a continuous stream of new attack vectors for adversaries to prey on. Regardless of the tactics used, most breaches comprise some exploitation of software vulnerabilities or system configuration settings.

However, despite widespread deployment of vulnerability technologies, many security professionals still struggle with how to best protect their organizations, achieve compliance, and communicate risk enterprise-wide. In fact, most vulnerability management solutions do little to help security leaders put vulnerability and risk information in the context of business.

Saddled with volumes of rigid data and static reports, the security team is left to manually discern real threats and determine how to act upon them – leaving organizations ill-equipped to defend themselves against even novice attackers.  A harsh reality, underscored by Verizon’s 2015 Data Breach Report that found “99.9% of exploited vulnerabilities were compromised more than a year after the CVE was published.”
