In a blog article published earlier today, security professionals at Rootshell Security discussed risk-based vulnerability management and the impossibility of addressing every cyber security risk inside an organisation’s threat landscape–there may be hundreds. Consequently, risk-based vulnerability management is gaining importance in modern IT security strategies.
Risk-based vulnerability management enables organisations to concentrate their remediation efforts on the most dangerous issues.
The risk-based vulnerability management technique assists IT security teams in determining the possibility of a vulnerability being exploited in relation to the value of the affected asset.
Risk-based vulnerability management can assist firms in answering issues such as “Do I need to patch this system?” and “How quickly should I fix it?”
The technique ensures that money is not wasted on risks that are unlikely to have an impact, in addition to allowing firms to properly prioritise remediation.
The report also notes that Prism Platform is a vulnerability management solution of the next generation that modernises IT security teams. Its robust feature set helps firms improve remediation from start to end, including cyber risk management and mitigation.
Prism enables users to examine their global threat landscape in real-time, making it simple to continuously analyse technological risk. Users of Prism can track 87 percent more assets than they could before using the software.
Automatic Intelligence on Threats
Prism makes it simple to ensure that the risk-based vulnerability management approach is driven by intelligence. Prism’s industry-leading Daily Exploit Detection notifies users as soon as an exploit for a vulnerability in an organisation’s digital estate becomes available.
Perspectives & Reports
To make sure users are always aware of the status of their risk-based vulnerability strategy, Prism’s dashboards place crucial insights–such as the number of exploitable vulnerabilities–front and centre.
Prism modernises vulnerability management programmes and enhances every facet of remediation, enabling teams to tackle problems more quickly than ever before. Prism reduces the mean time to address exploitable vulnerabilities by 61%.
Prism assigns priority ratings to assets, monitors the state of remediation for associated vulnerabilities, and evaluates the performance of the system owners allocated to them.
