Patch Management Risks

The term patch triggers many familiar scenarios which include the duct tape repairs of different objects, affixing a rubber patch to a blown bicycle tire and much more. While these temporary fixes won’t heal the fundamental cause, they are easy and quick solutions.

Security Automation Best Practices

Automation has become the main component of successful and growing businesses. This is true in the cybersecurity industry, specifically with access and identity management, patching and network management.  

Vulnerability Remediation, Meet Automation

Automated vulnerability remediation helps organizations build and implement a risk-focused, contextual and effective vulnerability management program. Therefore, this will help them decide on the effective vulnerability remediation approach based on assets, security patches and security updates across common vulnerabilities.

WFH Do's and Don'ts

Nowadays, we are all dealing with an unprecedented situation due to the coronavirus pandemic. Employees from all over the world are working from home and trying to adapt to the remote work culture. 

Six Ways to Improve Your Patch Management Practices

Ask any IT or Infosec professional if they think patch management is important, and you’ll get an annoyed “of course.” But while the majority of organizations understand the importance of patching, implementation of patch management can be lackluster. With so many operating systems, expanding infrastructure, hybrid cloud environments, hundreds of applications, and thousands of assets, it can be difficult to maintain an effective strategy for what should be routine security hygiene. Every organization wants to minimize their risk profile, and an effective, efficient, and—above all—routine set of best practices is the first step.

CVSS: The Vulnerability Dartboard

An Overview of CVSS Score

The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) is the industry standard for scoring the severity of a vulnerability. In this article, we will take a closer look at this score. 

The Past, Present, and Future of the CVSS

The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) offers a way for companies to assess the fundamental features of a vulnerability and produce a numerical score showcasing its severity. The CVSS has proven to be beneficial to assess vulnerabilities and to standardize security policies. But, it has also shown some inadequacies in addressing the needs of users outside of traditional IT environments. 

What are CVSS scores?

Understanding Vulnerability Scoring

Threat actors make use of vulnerabilities for their attacks. By exploiting vulnerabilities, attackers can gain access to devices, networks and systems. Vulnerabilities enable attackers to steal corporate information and sell sensitive information. They can also eavesdrop to confidential communication.
