If your applications are delivered with vulnerabilities attached – it won’t matter how good your network security is. This is true whether they’re hosted on-premise or in the cloud.
While patching will resolve the majority of vulnerabilities found on your network, others can have a bigger impact such as careless administration and use of IT equipment. These need to be managed as much, if not more than patches.
Examples of non-patch related vulnerabilities include:
These types of events occur too frequently to be detected by an annual penetration test. Periodic vulnerability management, ranging from daily to quarterly per year, is an excellent measure to ensure your network doesn’t fall into an insecure state between penetration tests.
If you can’t say for certain that “all vulnerabilities on my environment create only minimal and tolerant risks” contact Content Security and find out what the true risk your vulnerabilities actually are.
