Survey reveals pitfalls of traditional vulnerability scanners
Learn what IT professionals had to say about vulnerability management programs at their organizations, including how often and what zones they scan, and the challenges they encounter.
The Skybox Security Vulnerability Management Survey 2012, conducted in conjunction with Osterman Research, polled more than 100 IT decision makers including security managers, and network and systems engineers involved in vulnerability management processes.
Among the findings:
� 90% of firms have a vulnerability management program and consider it a priority
� 49% have experienced a cyber attack in the past 6 months
� Large organizations tend to scan more frequently and with greater coverage
� The top reasons for not scanning more often are concerns about disruptions and lacking resources for analysis or patching activity
