    Service: Vulnerability management tools

    Description: Vulnerability management is a critical process of identifying, classifying, and fixing vulnerabilities. It only takes a single vulnerability to launch an attack, and most large enterprises have hundreds of thousands of vulnerabilities on their network.

    Importance: These solutions allow enterprises to find vulnerabilities and prioritize vulnerabilities. Some will also identify multi-step attack vectors such as APTs.

    Best practices / advice: Network context is essential. Just because a vulnerability is rated medium by the vendor, doesn't mean that you can ignore it. Remediate based on risk to your network to reduce the attack surface as fast as possible.
