A good vulnerability and asset management program drives down business risk by remediating the vulnerabilities that could result in unacceptable harm. It bridges the gap between IT and business, enabling management to understand how technical vulnerabilities could jeopardize business outcomes. Essential to such a program are effective risk-based prioritization of vulnerabilities, efficient remediation processes and clear management reporting.
Vulnerabilities that could compromise sensitive or critical information are identified quickly.
Remedial action on vulnerabilities is prioritized by business risk.
High risk vulnerabilities are processed within policy timescales.
Management has assurance that vulnerability management is effective.
Vulnerability and asset management
As the digital landscape grows ever more complex with new technologies, devices and service providers, it is increasingly difficult to keep track of assets, vulnerabilities and patching status. There is an urgent need to prioritize open vulnerabilities based on the risks to the business. However, most patching programs don’t provide credible, timely information based on business risks that would make such prioritization possible. Learn how our Integrated Vulnerability and Asset Management application can help.
