Risk-based vulnerability management: A top cybersecurity priority for 2021
New Gartner® research on vulnerability management best practices
Vulnerability management is evolving. Large, complex enterprises and public sector organizations are tasked with treating an increasingly large amount of identified vulnerabilities – yet lack resources to address them.
According to Gartner: “Effective vulnerability management requires a cyclical continuous effort. Ad hoc vulnerability activities, assessments, and treatment of vulnerabilities will fail.”

In 2021, Gartner ranked risk-based vulnerability as the No. 2 security project for organizations to prioritize business enablement and reduce risk. “Don’t try to patch everything; focus on vulnerabilities that are actually exploitable.”*
