Vulnerability Management

The primary goal of vulnerability management is to enhance the security posture of your organisation.

By identifying and mitigating vulnerabilities, you reduce the potential for security breaches, data leaks, and other cyber threats.

This helps protect sensitive information and maintain the trust of customers, partners, and stakeholders.

A managed vulnerability process allows you to identify risks and allocate resources to the areas of the highest risk.

What is vulnerability management in Cyber Security?

Vulnerability management is an ongoing process through which cyber vulnerabilities are:

It’s a systematic approach to address vulnerabilities within an your technological infrastructure, which minimises potential points of entry that cyber attackers might attempt to exploit.

A security team will use a vulnerability management tool to detect vulnerabilities, and then use different strategies to address and remediate the security flaw.

Are you concerned that hidden vulnerabilities could be jeopardising your security strategy? Fear not. Our team are on hand to shine a light on all those deep, dark corners of your IT ecosystem.

What is risk-based vulnerability management?

Effective vulnerability management takes a risk a risk-based approach.

This risk-based vulnerability management assesses vulnerabilities not only for their potential to be exploited but also for what the organisational consequences of a breach might be.

This allows you to prioritise resources, targeting the most critical vulnerabilities first, and radically reducing the potential for harm.

Vulnerability management vs vulnerability assessment?

The terms vulnerability management and vulnerability assessment are sometimes used interchangeably, but they are in fact distinct stages in the security process.

It was a pleasure working with the Equilibrium team - they were very understanding of our needs, worked very well with my team, and most importantly were very patient and understanding of the limitations of my team to provide the information required when needed due to other priorities.
