Close What Matters: 5 Requirements for Reducing Vulnerability Risk

May 18, 2018

It only takes one exploited vulnerability to bring down a large enterprise. In most cyber attacks, a patch will be available and security tools will trigger alerts. But far too often, the vulnerabilities will remain open, enabling attackers to access business-critical systems and sensitive data.

In short, it doesn’t matter how many vulnerabilities you close at the end of the month if you’re not closing the right ones. For security teams that lack the resources to analyze, correlate, and prioritize vulnerabilities, remediation can feel like a game of Russian roulette. The good news is that vulnerability management doesn’t have to be fraught with risk. You can prioritize high-risk vulnerabilities and significantly reduce the risk of leaving a targeted vulnerability open. This whitepaper discusses the essential steps your organization needs to take to get there.
