Presentation: “Prioritizing Your Vulnerabilities”

Without exposure, there is no risk.  Traditional metrics used to prioritize vulnerabilities do not consider the context of the vulnerability’s exposure across the network.
RedSeal comprehensively analyses network access and correlates that access to one’s vulnerabilities.  This intelligence provides remediation prioritization based on whether a vulnerability is directly or indirectly attackable, or even without exposure.”
