Whenever a new critical vulnerability hits the world (like last week's high severity OpenSSL vulnerabilities), security teams have to scramble to answer:...
- What software is impacted?
- What systems are impacted?
- How long will it take to patch critical systems?
- What the impact would be from leaving the vulnerability open in systems with low exposure or impact?
This task is increasingly not a human scale problem; the number of vulnerabilities and assets that organizations like yours have to manage, are growing exponentially.
The path forward lies in automation. Automation allows you to easily find and remediate vulnerabilities at scale. With automation, you can get instant visibility of impacted assets and can easily remediate vulnerabilities to reduce their exposure from weeks and months to days.
Even in the last weeks of 2022, there are steps you can take to bolster your organization's security. Consider this expert advice
As 2022 winds down, it's tempting to allocate all IT brain power and resources to 2023 planning. But it would be a mistake to assume that there are no remaining agenda items to address this year. The evolving cybersecurity landscape means new vulnerabilities and attack methods are continually emerging.
While combating these threats is undoubtedly a priority for the year ahead, here are three key areas that should be dealt with before you close the door on 2022.
