It is not in a vacuum that vulnerabilities exist today. Most of it either depend on a variety of internal and external factors in an organization or the near constant changing state of the threat environment. CISOs and security leaders must be updated with the trends shaping the threat landscape and, in turn, their revitalize their defence strategy. But there are plentiful of challenges. to achieve that.
Today, organizations are facing many headaches to implement effective vulnerability and patch management practices in their security environment. Digital transformation is at the top of that list. Although the digital transformation strategies such as loud migration and enterprise mobility have helped the companies to achieve optimum efficiencies, they have also significantly expanded the attack surface at many organizations, underscoring the need for better vulnerability prevention, detection, and mitigation strategies. Further, the adoption of DevOps, continuous integration and delivery (CI/ CD), and other application development and delivery models in recent years has similarly focused attention on vulnerability scanning and remediation integration much earlier in the software development life cycle than before.
Defined as the cyclical practice of identifying, classifying, remediating, and mitigating vulnerabilities, Vulnerability management if used well can help to be safer from data breaches and theft. They can preemptively defend against the exploitation of vulnerabilities in company applications, software and networks. This can involve the use of tools such as antivirus programs, firewalls and/or intrusion detection systems. In addition to using these tools, security teams should regularly run security tests against the network from the outside in. A comprehensive organizational cybersecurity program requires that enterprises engage in both application and network vulnerability management. Both must be secured for an enterprise to adequately protect its critical data. Organizational security teams must integrate their network security vulnerability management efforts with their application security efforts to ensure that new threats are protected across both layers.
