Making Application & Infrastructure Vulnerability Management More Effective

Many organizations these days have become so focused on protecting themselves against sophisticated threats, they pay less attention to the seemingly mundane (but no less important) tasks required to secure an enterprise. According to the 2019 Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report, “vulnerability exploitation” is still one of the most prominent forms of attack. While 50 percent of vulnerabilities are typically remediated within 90 days after discovery (and 25 percent within 30 days), identifying and fixing basic vulnerabilities in software and infrastructure can seem like a never-ending task of constant vigilance. Further, organizations are struggling to keep up with the dizzying pace it takes to roll out new software capabilities, which only deepens the challenge of keeping up with all the risks across applications and infrastructure.
