Vulnerability Management is a process for identifying, classifying, prioritizing, and mitigating security weaknesses (known as “vulnerabilities”) in computer systems, networks, and applications. A Vulnerability Management solution is a set of tools and processes that helps organizations implement this process and reduce their overall risk from vulnerabilities. These solutions typically include features such as vulnerability scanning, reporting, remediation guidance, and integration with other security tools. The goal of a Vulnerability Management solution is to provide organizations with a proactive and systematic approach to identifying and remedying vulnerabilities, reducing the risk of successful attacks and data breaches.
The objective of a Vulnerability Management solution is to help organizations reduce their risk from security weaknesses (vulnerabilities) in their computer systems, networks, and applications. This is achieved by providing a systematic approach to identify, classify, prioritize, and mitigate these vulnerabilities in a proactive and efficient manner.
Scanning systems, networks, and applications to identify potential security weaknesses.
Assigning severity levels to vulnerabilities based on the potential impact on the organization's systems and data.
Determining which vulnerabilities pose the greatest risk to the organization and should be addressed first.
Regularly scanning and monitoring systems to ensure that new vulnerabilities are identified and addressed in a timely manner.
NDR solutions provides real-time alerts and incident response guidance to help organizations quickly and effectively respond to security incidents.
The deliverables of a vulnerability management solution typically include:
