In a blog post published earlier today, security professionals from Root Security discussed risk-based vulnerability management and the impossibility of addressing all cybersecurity risks in an organization’s threat landscape – there can be hundreds of them. Therefore, risk-based vulnerability management is gaining importance in modern IT security strategies.
Risk-based vulnerability management allows organizations to focus their remediation efforts on the most dangerous issues.
The risk-based vulnerability management technique helps IT security teams determine the likelihood of a vulnerability being exploited relative to the value of the affected asset.
Risk-based vulnerability management can help organizations answer questions such as “Do I need to patch this system?” and “How soon do I have to fix it?”
The technique ensures that money is not wasted on risks that are unlikely to have an impact, in addition to allowing companies to properly prioritize corrective actions.
The report also notes that Prism Platform is a next-generation vulnerability management solution that modernizes IT security teams. Its robust feature set helps organizations improve end-to-end remediation, including cyber risk management and mitigation.
Prism allows users to examine their global threat landscape in real time, simplifying ongoing technology risk analysis. Prism users can track 87% more assets than before using the software.
Automatic threat intelligence
Prism helps ensure that the risk-based approach to vulnerability management is driven by intelligence. Prism’s industry-leading daily exploit detection notifies users as soon as an exploit for a vulnerability in an organization’s digital domain becomes available.
Insights and reports
To ensure that users are always aware of the status of their risk-based vulnerability strategy, Prism dashboards put crucial information, such as the number of exploitable vulnerabilities, front and center.
Prism modernizes vulnerability management programs and improves every facet of remediation, enabling teams to resolve issues faster than ever. Prism reduces the average time to address exploitable vulnerabilities by 61%.
Prioritization of investments
Prism assigns priority ratings to assets, monitors the remediation status of associated vulnerabilities, and evaluates the performance of owners of systems assigned to them.
