Vulnerability management is a cybersecurity strategy that includes programs and tools that work together for greater visibility, risk management, and security solutions.
Vulnerability programs include a four-part process of discovering, reporting, prioritizing, and responding to vulnerabilities. These are not linear, but work together to continually perform their functions and interconnect their results. Together they comprise a continuous cycle improving system security. By staying on top of vulnerabilities, fixes can be more immediate, security audits more frequent and overall cybersecurity more effective. A strong vulnerability management strategy employs risk assessment, risk acceptance, and remediation in an agile system rather than separate foci.
Vulnerability management tools include vulnerability assessment tools, security scanning tools, and vulnerability software.
