Provided By: Recorded Future   Send Email to POC   View Content   Sep 2021
Patching vulnerabilities is critical for protecting an organization's data and assets. 60% of breaches have been linked to a vulnerability where a patch was available but not applied. However, identifying which vulnerabilities are a priority is difficult, and relying on CVSS scores alone won't do the job. Of the 18,000 vulnerabilities identified in 2020, nearly 60% fell into the categories of "high" or "critical". To truly protect against vulnerabilities, organizations should employ risk-based vulnerability intelligence to understand which threats pose the largest risk ...
