Software Vulnerability Scanning – What does it do?

The Benefits of Vulnerability Management

Overlooking Vulnerability Management is like securing your house with a sophisticated alarm system but without locking every door and window before going on holiday. This is a vast generalisation because networks have many hosts and each one of them has dozens of potential issues. So, it is crucial to have a consistent, repeatable plan for vulnerability management in your organisation.

Software Vulnerability Scanning – What does it do?

Vulnerability Management (VM) is the process in which vulnerabilities in IT systems are identified and the risks of these vulnerabilities evaluated. This evaluation leads to correction, removal or acceptance of risks by the organisation.

Benefits of Vulnerability Management

Vulnerability management is integral to computer and network security. Vulnerability management process allows to:

· Control the information security risks.

· Bring extra focus on information security at the time of increasing cyber-crime and complexity.

· Obtain a continuous overview of vulnerabilities in their IT environment and the risks associated with them.
