Automated Vulnerability Remediation - The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

The way we identify, prioritize, and mitigate software vulnerabilities was built in reverse order. Why did it happen? How can we make things different?

Beyond Subjectivity: Sharpening CVSS with Asset Context

Vulnerability prioritization is a key aspect of vulnerability remediation and threat tracking. It allows companies to strategize their mitigation paths for security weaknesses based on the criticality of cyber risk with the right organizational context.

Vulnerability Rich - Contextually Blind!

It’s not uncommon to find the traditional vulnerability assessment report buried under the CISO family picture, compliance books, and his latest blood pressure test. These reports highlight the never-ending battle between security and IT about what’s more important: risks to servers and endpoints, or keeping the environment up-to-date and secured. There are even problems within the ranks of each unit. Dysfunctional processes, lack of efficient communication, and rudimentary tools put even more pressure on the CIO and CISO.

Vicarius Offers Free Assistance to Keep Your Remote Workforce Safe

With the weight of the world on its shoulders, the Internet, like Atlas, has kept the sky from falling. As a pandemic moves the global workplace online, we brace for the challenges that lie ahead. Now cyber threats around the world are on the rise, targeting health, governmental and financial institutions.

In Italy alone there's been a reported staggering 30 percent increase in cyberattacks since the outbreak of the coronavirus. With our institutions more vulnerable than ever, a quarantined workforce must take proper steps and precautions to safeguard organizational apps and assets from exploitation.


Vicarius, the Israeli cyberfirm behind TOPIA, announced Friday its plans to offer remote workers free software protection and assistance for all third-party apps.

"Our expertise is identifying and blocking software vulnerabilities," said Michael Assraf, Vicarius's CEO. "This is what most remote workers need most urgently as they work from home off vulnerable networks. What we're offering remote workers isn't just nice-to-have –– it's unfortunately necessary today.

The World Health Organization issued a report Monday warning the public of WHO imposters on a vicious phishing spree. Worldometers, an international statistics tracker, said it was the target of a DDoS attack and "malicious act.” Earlier this week, the US Department of Health and Human Services suffered a severe attack. The reported damage is still unclear.

Vicarius's TOPIA identifies vulnerabilities, prioritizes threats and patchless security patching, helping security team fast-track security cycles.

Since the outbreak, the hardest hit countries have reported a 30 percent increase in cyberattacks. Vicarius provides the perfect solution by inoculating programs with a cloud-based service that is ideal for remote access.

This seed investment gives our team the capital injection needed to continue the design and development of many great Vicarius products like TOPIA.

To Patch, Or Not To Patch? -- That Is The Question!

So you’re at that warm, fuzzy place CISOs and IT professionals know all-too-well: There are countless vulnerabilities your organization is “theoretically” vulnerable to, for which you’d like to start implementing patches immediately to increase security, but on the other hand, you’re concerned about patches and new version releases breaking users’ functionality.
