Top 10 Vulnerability Management Solution Providers - 2018

From budding startups to multinational enterprises—regardless of the size—every company is struggling with the overload of data. With the increase in the volume of business and personal data, increases the threat of data breaches. On the other hand, the increasing adoption of vulnerable technologies like the Internet of Things (IoT) has escalated the cybercriminal activities. This, in turn, has created a huge demand for robust technologies that can take immediate action and improve security, and several vulnerability management solution providers have emerged in the industry to address these increasing demands.

Next, to achieve business goals, vulnerability management (VM) has become the second priority for every organization. Companies are shifting their focus from protection to prevention to reduce pitfalls. Consequently, forward-looking CISOs are transforming their VM programs focusing more on reducing the impact of vulnerabilities on the organization, rather than running mere scans. Vulnerability management solution providers have been developing VM tools over the years with new capabilities including authenticated or agent-based scans.

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (MI) models are gaining popularities with the ability to anticipate and accurately identify the attacks to arrest them. AI in behavioral analysis can effectively structure and organize data. It identifies the fraud pattern and produces an accurate threat defense. Consequently, Machine Learning (ML) is being leveraged by organizations for strengthening cybersecurity with its efficiency to provide distinct solutions according to the degree of the risk. Besides, companies continue to rely on DevOps to set goals, monitor, and identify processes, and check for security misconfigurations and vulnerabilities earlier in the development lifecycle.
