As attackers find multiple ways to penetrate to application, network, operating systems the security engineers and developers working round the clock creating patches.
Vulnerability management is a continuous, proactive, and often automated process that keeps your computer systems, networks, and enterprise applications safe from cyberattacks and data breaches. As such, it is an important part of an overall security program. By identifying, assessing, prioritize and addressing potential security weaknesses, organizations can help prevent attacks and minimize damage if one does occur.
The goal of vulnerability management is to reduce the organization’s overall risk exposure by mitigating as many vulnerabilities as possible. This can be a challenging task, given the number of potential vulnerabilities and the limited resources available for remediation. Vulnerability management should be a continuous process to keep up with new and emerging threats and changing environments.
