Vulnerability management should be treated as a process of identifying, evaluating, managing, reporting, and strategically integrating the findings and learnings into the overall Threat Management program. Simply scanning and patching is a whack a mole proposition while a quality vulnerability management program maps the organization’s assets, their importance, the vulnerabilities of the assets, and the criticality of the threat or vulnerability to the system. In addition, the program should strategically recommend remediation and mitigation actions to address the threats based on their overall risk to the organization.Get a quote
There is likely more confusion around Vulnerability Scanning, Vulnerability Management, Application Scanning and even Penetration Testing concerning what to expect in terms of service, reporting, and how each service can help reduce risk and eliminate the thousands of vulnerabilities that are discovered continuously.
Vulnerability scanning is part of an overall vulnerability management program but certainly isn’t the program in and of itself. Network scanners or application scanners are used to find known vulnerabilities so that those vulnerabilities can be eliminated typically through patching or configuration changes. The issue that organizations have experienced is that vulnerabilities are constantly discovered, and security teams find themselves patching haphazardly without consideration to the system or asset value that needs to be patched. Thus, for many organizations, eliminating vulnerabilities in a timely manner is not managed strategically and certainly not efficiently; ultimately leaving organizations open to threats.
