Vulnerability Assessment: A Critical Tool in the Age of Ransomware

At Trustwave, we assist a wide range of organizations with managing their vulnerability program by helping prioritize vulnerabilities in a timely manner so risk is reduced. We encourage organizations to regularly run vulnerability assessments to optimize risk management in their business organization.

There are scenarios where organizations need assistance and options with remediating vulnerabilities. Trustwave helps manage vulnerabilities by providing various palatable risk remediation plans, which fits within an organizations' risk appetite. Combining vulnerability assessment with the Trustwave Fusion Platform allows continuous management of your assets that can then be used to mature your penetration testing further.

Why Vulnerability Assessments are Important

Vulnerability Assessment is the process of identifying and quantifying known security vulnerabilities within an information systems environment. Unlike a penetration test, which looks to actively exploit vulnerabilities to demonstrate impact, vulnerability management is the bedrock of a mature security program. Vulnerability Assessments can help provide an estate-wide view of an organization’s security posture. They provide a view of weaknesses as well as provide risk remediation.

This is important as exploiting vulnerabilities is a major initial attack vector used by threat actors and ransomware-based attacks.
