IT departments are overwhelmed by the abundance of vulnerabilities that continue to grow at a rapid pace every day. They struggle to identify the most critical threats they must address right away at any given point to protect their organizations from a compromise.
Attempting to eradicate 100 percent of vulnerabilities sequentially, by treating them all as equally important, is impractical, myopic and dangerous.
Consequently, organizations that fail to properly prioritize vulnerability remediation open themselves up to devastating cyber-attacks. They risk sustaining extensive damage to their operations, financial standing, brand image, corporate reputation and customer and partner relationships.
