Vulnerability Management - Evolving Beyond Traditional Vulnerability Assessment and Remediation

Report ID: 2065715

Summary

Table of Contents

Frost & Sullivan has found three ways that VM service providers differentiate. The first point of differentiation is improved methods of vulnerability assessment and compliance reporting. Second, context awareness enhances vulnerability management platforms. On a fundamental level, network security can only happen if each device on the network is secure (at least in its linking to the network), and if the threat environment is properly understood. Last, many vulnerability management providers are integrating secondary technologies onto their platforms, which constitutes another means of product differentiation.


Executive Summary

Frost & Sullivan defines vulnerability management (VM) as a platform that offers vulnerability assessment; and the results of the assessment trigger a remediation response. The technology is not outdated, but the threat environment is rapidly changing. Hackers do not discriminate; they now attack small companies and large companies alike. Cloud- and Web-based storage and applications are being added by businesses to create new services and to enhance existing services. Similarly, pernicious actors are creating new exploits. In a hybrid network, assets accepted from Web-based services can lay dormant on the other side of a network firewall, and can activate within a network.

Changes in the threat environment, and new paradigms in networking, create a dilemma—but also reveal an opportunity for VM providers. Without innovation, a stand-alone VM platform provider has the danger of offering a commodity security product. By the same token, it is also true that VM service providers are finding ways to leverage their knowledge of aspects of networking and software-coding to integrate value-added services. This report describes how VM service providers are extending their platforms to include value-added services beyond vulnerability assessment and remediation.
