Streamlining Vulnerability Management

Working Smarter, Not Harder in the New Normal

Today’s volume of remote employees leaves businesses open to a multitude of new vulnerabilities when it comes to security. This increased threat surface also brings with it a reduction in work if attacks are successful. That is why having a robust, automated vulnerability management protocol in place is so important to today’s new normal in the workplace.

Historically, gathering information about vulnerabilities has been at the heart of risk management and can include many manual, time-consuming tasks. Click To Tweet

The larger an organization is, the more cumbersome vulnerability scanning and remediation can become, as different departments seek to gather the details to support work for their teams. As our workforce continues to work remotely, with different security levels and network levels, this process has grown even more difficult to manage.

Automated evidence gathering allows organizations to gather as much information and evidence about different types of vulnerabilities as possible, scanning for common threats at an enterprise scale.

Manual steps, including classification, prioritization, remediation, and mitigation of risk can all be automated with ServiceNow.

VR also allows management to monitor the effectiveness of remediation across the enterprise, reducing total risk; and prioritize vulnerabilities to enact remediation efforts that will result in the biggest impact on total risk. This process can be tailored to meet security frameworks and protocols as needed. 

The answer to managing risk in today’s challenging work environment is automation.

Coupled with a robust vulnerability management platform, your business can act on detected vulnerabilities before it’s too late.
