SOCVue VPM automates the process of detection, prioritization, and patching of vulnerabilities with an auditable change management work flow to continually reduce the attack surface and improve protection against cyberattacks in a cost-effective manner.
A new report from the Online Trust Alliance (OTA) recommends regular patching and paying close attention to vulnerability reports as a best practice, while neglecting both is a known cause of breaches, noting that both should receive special attention in light of the Equifax breach. The report found that 93 percent of breaches that occurred in 2017 were avoidable, with 52 percent attributed to hacking.

SOCVue VPM not only answers the critical question of, “am I vulnerable” but also provides an elegant mechanism to fix vulnerabilities and reduce or prevent being compromised. SOCVue VPM eliminates information silos, improves collaboration among cross functional teams, and increases accountability while reducing inefficiencies that impact most…
