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.
