The Verizon Data Breach Investigative Report shows that new and old vulnerabilities alike are being exploited daily. While being aware of and fixing top 10 vulnerabilities is a solid first step in reducing the attack surface, one should not forget that the other vulnerabilities are actively exploited in the wild. So long as the exploits exist, attackers continue to automate weaponized vulnerabilities and spray and pray them across the internet, sometimes yielding incredible success.
In the connected digital world with increasing number of cloud enabled applications, mobile devices, and dynamic virtualized environments, every organization needs a well-defined vulnerability management process to detect and fix both old and new vulnerabilities before they are exploited by the adversaries. Running a scan of an organization’s IT infrastructure will reveal thousands of potential vulnerabilities at any given point in time. Reading hundreds (100s) of pages of reports to figure out which vulnerabilities pose the most risk to your organization and where to focus your limited resources is time consuming and overwhelming for an IT team.
Vulnerability Management helps you identify potential weak links (or holes) that can be exploited by the attacker. Vulnerability Management should include regular scans of your IT infrastructure to detect and prioritize vulnerabilities based on business risk, followed by remediation of exploitable high-risk vulnerabilities and vulnerabilities with known exploits.
