The Secret Weapon for Automating Vuln Management

Crunching through the output of vulnerability scan results is grueling, tiring, and like running a treadmill that never ends. How do you automate the process--including the reporting--without sacrificing quality?

  • Automate your prioritization process so it's 10x faster
  • Integrate exploit intelligence and zero-day data
  • Easily report and measure your risk posture over time?
Security teams can't keep up with the volume of vulnerabilities they have to close; each network scan contributes to a mountain of data that has to be analyzed, sorted, acted upon--and finally placed into reports. The days of dealing with data by manually manipulating spreadsheets and crunching numbers are long past.

The goal of a modern Vulnerability Management team should be to focus on risk, not simple vulnerability counts. You can try to "close all the things," but if you end up patching a bunch of exploits that were never in danger of being weaponized, you've just wasted a lot of time.

Rather, when automating the vulnerability management process, the steps you put in place should be to take a risk-based view of your environment. How do you prioritize and focus on the vulnerabilities that truly affect your organization's risk posture, and then report on the impact of your efforts?
