2021 Year End Vulnerability QuickView Report

Expecting any organization to triage, prioritize, and then remediate 28,695 vulnerabilities in one year is extremely unrealistic, and without a risk-based approach, key issues are more likely to remain unpatched.”

Brian Martin, Vice President of Vulnerability Intelligence at RBS

Check out our report for deeper analysis into the vulnerability disclosure landscape, as well as best practices that organizations can follow to make risk-based decisions.

To make the most effective use of time and resources, security teams should first focus on issues that are remotely exploitable, have a public exploit, and have documented solution information. By following this approach, organizations can potentially reduce their immediate workload by 86% while still addressing the most significant risks with which they are faced.”

The 2021 Year End Vulnerability QuickView Report showcases the importance of comprehensive, detailed, and timely vulnerability intelligence to a risk-based vulnerability management program.
