Information security: keep your devices safe & patched

Updated: Jul 21, 2021

For a long time, Vulnerability Management has been neglected by infrastructure management teams and Network vulnerabilities represent security gaps that could be abused by attackers to damage network assets, trigger a denial of service, and/or steal potentially sensitive information.


Exploiting vulnerabilities remains a popular path for threat actors. The U.S. CERT Vulnerability Database recorded 17,447 vulnerabilities in 2020, a record number of vulnerabilities for the fourth consecutive year.1 This underscores the importance of having a strong vulnerability management strategy. Combined with other security solutions such as XDR, managed detection and response, or security monitoring, vulnerability management is important and should be considered a pillar of your security foundation.


Primary benefits to performing regular vulnerability assessments:

  • Identify known security exposures before attackers find them.

  • Create an inventory of all the devices on the network, including purpose and system information. This also includes vulnerabilities associated with a specific device.

  • Create an inventory of all devices in the enterprise to help with the planning of upgrades and future assessments.

  • Define the level of risk that exists on the network.

  • Establish a business risk/benefit curve and optimize security investments.
