If it hasn’t happened to you yet, it will: Attackers have breached your defenses and are stalking your network. What are your next steps?

The evolving threat landscape just gets more complex and brutal as time goes on. Targeted threats abound as advanced persistent threat campaigns, cyberwarfare, distributed denial of service attacks, and spearphishing. Meanwhile, zero-day vulnerabilities and exploits continue to be frequent occurrences. It’s a hostile cyber world out there, and it’s easy for organizations and enterprises to get overwhelmed.
Vulnerability Management has come along way in recent years. Once thought to be a once a month process, modern vulnerability solutions offer organizations near unlimited flexibility in regards to when and how vulnerability scans take place. Now, with continuous visibility into the vulnerabilities across their environments, IT teams can take action fast when a critical asset is flagged as vulnerable.
Imagine your house is on fire, your neighbor spots the fire first, walks across the street to tell you your house is on fire, and then takes a seat on his front porch and watches it burn.

Unfortunately this extreme example is the extent of what security scanning tools do for enterprise IT teams and the digital businesses they serve.
