Organizations are often too busy with day-to-day maintenance and mitigating current threats to dedicate time to proactively search for vulnerabilities in their network. Vulnerability assessment tools can lessen the burden by identifying and even patching issues. Vulnerability assessment tools are just the start of vulnerability management (VM). Many of them require time, fine tuning, and further investigation before proving their worth.
Datashield provides vulnerability management as a service, providing clients with a comprehensive solution to identify, prioritize and respond to vulnerability exposure across their network.
Vulnerability Management definition: The continuous practice of identifying, prioritizing, and remediating vulnerabilities.
Vulnerability Scanner definition: Cybersecurity tools that identify known vulnerabilities such as open ports, insecure configurations, and susceptibility to malware.
Vulnerability Assessment definition: Not to be confused with management, assessment is the process of finding and quantifying vulnerabilities. This process is part of the management, and should occur at least once a month as current best practice. Many industries require a quarterly vulnerability scan as part of compliance.
