What is Vulnerability Management? 

Vulnerability management is foundational to your cybersecurity operations, moving beyond periodic vulnerability scanning and assessments to consistent reports and prioritization. Vulnerability management begins with asset discovery and reconnaissance, typically via scheduled scans, and allows you to then focus on specific network segments and priority assets. Many compliance regulations like HIPAA and PCI DSS require vulnerability assessments and scans. A vulnerability management solution saves you time and minimizes your risk and attack surface by acting as an extension of your IT team – automating scheduled scans, identifying misconfigured systems, and helping you prioritize remediation and mitigation efforts.

Vulnerability Management is Critical

On average, businesses have adopted nearly 100 different SaaS applications. This technology sprawl adds more chaos to cybersecurity management and introduces additional vulnerabilities. Accounting for legacy products that may be misconfigured or out of scope is nearly impossible without vulnerability assessment. 

This is why traditional vulnerability scanning falls short. IT teams continue to face staffing shortages and a surge of new vulnerabilities makes patching and remediation overwhelming. In fact, focusing on just the high and critical vulnerabilities over the last year would account for over 70,000 vulnerabilities. Vulnerability Management exceeds the basics of vulnerability assessment by including prioritization, remediation, and mitigation efforts into a managed service, freeing up your resources.
