A 2019 survey by PWC found that 57% of respondents who reported a breach said it was due to a vulnerability for which a patch was available but had not been applied. So why aren’t companies doing better when it comes to vulnerability management?
While vulnerability scanning tools help you identify vulnerabilities, they don’t help with the management of them. Simply knowing about vulnerabilities is not enough, organizations need actionable insights to create an effective mitigation plan.
Scanning tools often identify thousands of issues making it challenging for security teams to manage the risks associated with vulnerabilities efficiently, particularly as they are constantly changing. It’s impossible to address all known vulnerabilities, so prioritization becomes essential.
