451 Research Business Impact Brief
Doing the simple operational things well can mean the difference between secure and breached environments. And yet these are often the most difficult to achieve and can consume a large portion of information security resources. Effective vulnerability management is complicated by several challenges that individually seem addressable but collectively are only mastered by the most mature organizations. Leveraging an organization’s cybersecurity and business data, building automation, and applying effective risk perspectives to vulnerability management can help overcome these complexities and more efficiently focus resources on those factors that most directly impact security posture.
True vulnerability risk mitigation can seem like an opaque, intractable problem, leaving security teams doubtful about the potential to do better. But vulnerability remediation is a critical, if daunting, task, and there are intelligent approaches that organizations can implement to address it effectively.
