Traditionally, vulnerability assessment has relied on vulnerability scanners for vulnerability discovery. However, in today’s enterprise-scale networks, there is no way for most enterprise security teams to examine, prioritize and remediate vulnerabilities fast enough to effectively reduce overall risk levels.
But security teams can take a more effective approach to vulnerability assessment. Rule-driven profiling converts the product information stored in system and security management repositories into a detailed product catalog and then accurately deduces a list of vulnerabilities in the network. With this information, more than 90 percent of the vulnerabilities in a typical enterprise network can be accurately discovered, without an active scan.
The whitepaper looks at how you can use rule-driven profiling approach either independently or in conjunction with a network vulnerability scanner to achieve the high frequency and coverage necessary to reduce overall risk exposure. Complete the form to download.
