This is the last in a three-part blog series by Enterprise Management Associates discussing how vulnerability management can be expanded and simplified by using a cybersecurity asset management solution. In Part 1, we looked at how cybersecurity asset management can simplify vulnerability management and Part 2 highlighted how it helps improve an organization’s vulnerability management program. Part 3 of the series provides a brief summary and some perspectives on the benefits of a cybersecurity asset management solution as it relates to vulnerability management.
The value of cybersecurity asset management should be foundational, but it was only recently that the right set of technologies and business drivers converged to allow for cybersecurity asset management to be a part of vulnerability management — and thus greater cybersecurity and enterprise risk strategy.
Vulnerability management revolves around confidently knowing about any weaknesses in critical assets and that they’re managed appropriately. Sometimes that confidence is placed in the wrong tools and technologies — ones that are siloed or cannot see across the enterprise’s entire IT stack. Today, every enterprise needs a platform that can offer a comprehensive, real-time inventory and a correlation engine to normalize data across disparate systems, and produce a unified view of the status of every asset, how each asset complies with security policies, and automatically monitor the environment for changes, new vulnerabilities, and non-compliance.
A quality cybersecurity asset management solution will incorporate three key capabilities:
