VulnDB Powers Risk-Based Vulnerability Management with Splunk Enterprise
Learn how the free VulnDB Add-On and App enables organizations to use Splunk for effective vulnerability management.
Freely available in Splunkbase, both the VulnDB Add-On and the VulnDB App for Splunk software can be used by organizations that have an active VulnDB subscription that includes access to the VulnDB API.
The VulnDB Add-On makes the rich metadata and vulnerability data from VulnDB available within a user-specified Splunk index and essentially turns each vulnerability record within VulnDB into an event in Splunk, with a new event created whenever a new vulnerability is added or an existing vulnerability is updated.
VulnDB makes it possible to adopt a truly risk-based approach. Users will be able to manage a variety of metadata elements about assets to allow them to be categorized based on dimensions such as business function or criticality.
“The VulnDB App facilitates calculation of a Risk Score for each asset, which combines the Value, Vulnerability Exposure, and Threat Likelihood into a single quantitative result.”
For organizations using Splunk, combining the best-in-class vulnerability from VulnDB with Splunk’s powerful analytical capabilities is a highly compelling option. See for yourself how VulnDB is the most comprehensive, detailed and timely source of vulnerability intelligence.
