Knowledge-Driven, Risk-Centric Vulnerability Management
451 Research Business Impact Brief
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.


  • REDUCED RISK — Being able to accurately triage vulnerabilities drives prioritized remediation to tackle critical threats faster. Incorporating business context and threat intelligence into the risk analysis process takes it to a level where business impact and exploit likelihood drive risk assignment and remediation more accurately.
  • IMPROVED SITUATIONAL AWARENESS — Correlation of information across assets, vulnerabilities and current state reveals insights into gaps in the security posture and the resulting risk exposure. Organizations can derive a single source of truth with minimal disruption to existing systems.
  • INCREASED EFFICIENCY — Better targeting focuses resources where they’re needed most. A reliable, accessible knowledge base and process automation are force multipliers for information security teams.
