The increased volume and sophistication of cyber threats is matched only by the increase in risk as more business, personal and network information assets are targeted. Vulnerability to these threats must be known with confidence and a clear plan of action. Vulnerability Management is a foundational tool for identifying, prioritizing and reporting on these vulnerabilities. As suppliers build upon this foundation with new capabilities in analytics, automation, container technology, virtualization and cloud-based solutions, it will continue to be important to track the maturity and effectiveness of these solutions so businesses can decide which solution best suits their needs.
