Traditionally, vulnerability management has been a foundational practice and an integral part of any standard cybersecurity initiative. However, constantly changing device demographics and increasing sophistication in cyberattack techniques are challenging the vulnerability management industry to evolve into a risk-based vulnerability management approach that not only identifies unpatched software vulnerabilities but also predicts and mitigates other attack vectors.
This white paper will discuss:
- What is risk-based vulnerability management
- Challenges and limitations of traditional vulnerability management tools
- Why traditional tools are not enough to stop breaches
- Advantages of risk-based vulnerability management
