May 30, 2023 Vulnerability Management
In this day and age, vulnerabilities in software and systems pose a considerable danger to businesses, which is why it is essential to have an efficient vulnerability management program in place. To stay one step ahead of possible breaches and reduce the damage they may cause, it is crucial to automate the process of finding and fixing vulnerabilities depending on the level of danger they pose. This post will discuss the fundamental approaches and tools to implement and automate risk-based vulnerability management. To make this process easier, consider using an  all-in-one cloud-based solution  right from the start. Implementing a risk-based vulnerability management program A risk-based vulnerability management program is a complex preventative approach used for swiftly detecting and ranking vulnerabilities based on their potential threat to a business. By implementing a risk-based vulnerability management approach, organizations can improve their security posture and reduce the lik

Did you know that Network Detection and Response (NDR) has become the most effective technology to detect cyber threats? In contrast to SIEM, NDR offers adaptive cybersecurity with reduced false alerts and efficient threat response. Are you aware of  Network Detection and Response (NDR)  and how it's become the most effective technology to detect cyber threats?  NDR massively upgrades your security through risk-based alerting, prioritizing alerts based on the potential risk to your organization's systems and data. How? Well, NDR's real-time analysis, machine learning, and threat intelligence provide immediate detection, reducing alert fatigue and enabling better decision-making. In contrast to SIEM, NDR offers adaptive cybersecurity with reduced false positives and efficient threat response. Why Use Risk-Based Alerting? Risk-based alerting is an approach where security alerts and responses are prioritized based on the level of risk they pose to an organization's system
