How to Implement Continuous Vulnerability Management

Here are just some of the ways Prism helps you implement continuous vulnerability management.

Centralize Your Vulnerabilities

Prism is vendor-agnostic, so you can use it to consolidate results from any scanner or vendor and manage your vulnerabilities in one place. This makes it seamless for you to continuously analyse, prioritize, and manage all issues across your estate.

Close the Gaps Between Scans and Pen Tests

The time between vulnerability scans and penetration tests is the time when your organization could be at risk.

Prism’s industry-leading Daily Exploit Detection alerts you to exploits for your issues on a daily basis, so you can close these gaps, monitor your threat landscape in real-time, and prioritize most effectively.

Frequently Asked Questions About Continuous Vulnerability Management

Continuous vulnerability management is the cyclical process of identifying, evaluating, prioritising, and remediating security flaws within an organization’s network, systems, and applications.

The goal of continuous vulnerability management is to ensure that organizations have complete visibility and control of weaknesses that exist within their IT estates on an ongoing basis, so that the risk of a security breach is minimised.

The time in-between vulnerability scans or penetration tests is time when your organization could be at risk. Continuous vulnerability assessment and remediation is essential, as new vulnerabilities could emerge at any time, and pre-existing vulnerabilities could become more critical. By managing your vulnerabilities on a continuous basis, you can minimize the risk of your organization being breached.

  1. Discover: Identify vulnerabilities within your organization’s network by carrying out continuous vulnerability scanning.
  2. Consolidate: Centralise your assessment results in one place. This could involve transferring results from PDFs to a standardized database.
  3. Assess: Analyse your vulnerabilities to establish their severity, the likelihood that they will be exploited, and what impact they could have on your organization.
  4. Prioritize: Assign severity scores to your assets in line with your analysis, and other factors such as resource availability.
  5. Remediate: Implement your continuous vulnerability assessment and remediation program to resolve vulnerabilities in line with your organization’s priorities.
  6. Re-assess: Verify whether your remediation efforts have been successful. Ultimately, your vulnerability management process should reduce the risk of your organization being compromised.
  7. Visualize and improve: Continuously improve your vulnerability management process; resolve any bottlenecks and ensure compliance with your organization’s service level agreements. For example, could you reduce your time-to-remediate (TTR)?

Vulnerability management is not to be confused with a vulnerability assessment. Vulnerability management encompasses the end-to-end process of managing security issues, from discovery to remediation. On the other hand, a vulnerability assessment is a type of IT security test that discovers security issues within an organization’s network.

Risk-based vulnerability management is the process of remediating vulnerabilities in line with the risk they pose to the organization. This could involve using strategic threat intelligence to establish whether a vulnerability is exploitable and taking into account the business context of assets.

A continuous vulnerability management system could be a software, platform, or application that helps security teams implement effective vulnerability management on an ongoing basis. Learn more about vulnerability management systems.
