Benefits of Scanless Vulnerability Assessment

The use of scanless assessment to recognize vulnerabilities has numerous benefits, including minimizing network interruption. 

Three Important Steps for Your Vulnerability Remediation Process

Over 5,000 vulnerabilities make their way to headlines every year. The number will continue to grow, considering that the publicly disclosed vulnerabilities encourage the hackers in their devious acts.

What is Vulnerability Scanning?

If you are a cybersecurity veteran, you would know that one of the best ways to prevent a data breach is through vulnerability scanning.

Part Human, Part Machine: Leverage Automation To Bolster Your Defense

The sophistication of cybersecurity threats has outpaced the development of conventional security tools. Aside from automated and commoditized hacking methods such as file-based malware, botnets and viruses, advanced persistent threats (APTs) have also risen to become threats to anyone’s security. APTs are persistent malicious actors that attempt to gain access to sensitive information and infrastructure over a period of time.

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.

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. 

What is CVSS Severity?

The Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) offers a way to capture the major features of a vulnerability and produce a numerical score showcasing its severity. The numerical score can then be translated into a qualitative representation such as low, medium, high and critical to assist companies to effectively assess and prioritize their vulnerability management processes.

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.
