Unknown Vulnerability Management

Software release cycles are getting faster and new technologies are increasingly complex, creating a perfect breeding ground for security-related bugs. New patches are released every week, each requiring immediate attention. The maintenance downtime alone is expensive, not to mention the costs of ad-hoc deployment, which also prone to errors.

At the same time, a growing share of vulnerabilities is never disclosed publicly. Instead, they are sold and distributed within underground hacker communities. Companies can no longer afford to wait for patch releases from vendors, nor can they rely on user communities to find and report these bugs. Thus, they need to find new, proactive ways to protect their products and services.
