Growth of Public Vulnerability Disclosures, the Important Intermediary Between Commercial Threat Analysis and Cyber Grid Threat Reporting

The Frost & Sullivan report analyzes the global public vulnerability research market. The growth of cyber threats such as malware, viruses, ransomware, botnets and more are of great concern to companies and consumers. Uncovering and disclosing vulnerabilities is important for analyzing and countering potential threats.

The vulnerability material that is collected, queried, and segmented provides rich qualitative commentary on the vulnerability research industry and community of contributors, and recognizes the most prolific disclosers of new vulnerabilities.

Research Scope
Total number of public vulnerabilities
Market trends of severity levels
Market trends of applications and classes of applications
Market trends of different vulnerability flaws
In 2015, public vulnerability disclosures increased 43.8% over the previous year. Researchers are covering a wider breadth of applications, such as media players, operating systems, office products, web browsers and many more. There have also been notable changes among the key players. Trend Micro acquired HP TippingPoint and Google Project Zero launched in mid-2014.

The different types of threats which can exploit vulnerabilities are discussed in this report. Frost & Sullivan also conducted competitive analysis of the research institutions involved in disclosing vulnerabilities.

Key Questions this Study Answer
Which institutions have disclosed the most vulnerabilities and what types?
Which applications have had the most public vulnerabilities?
Have severity levels changed?
What are the most likely impacts threats will have on exploitable vulnerabilities?
