A Conversation with Forrester Research

You know how critical a vulnerability risk management program is to creating a strong defense against external cyberattacks. But is your program inherently flawed?

Traditional cyber security scanners, which rely on known, user-supplied scanning targets, are not enough to adequately manage today’s growing attack surface. While scanning known digital assets for vulnerabilities is crucial, it's the unknown portion--shadow IT, orphaned systems, IOT devices--of the attack surface that's being missed by traditional scanners.

According to Forrester Research's Josh Zelonis, a modern vulnerability risk management (VRM) program must have a strong discovery capability--a process they define as “digital footprinting”. Join us for our webinar where Zelonis will share how digital footprinting is essential to next-gen vulnerability risk management and why he felt it was an important criterion to add for The Forrester Wave™: Vulnerability Risk Management, Q4 2019.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How to take your vulnerability risk management (VRM) program to the next level by leveraging Internet discovery and threat intelligence
  • How to better prioritize your remediation tasks and speed up your risk reduction efforts
  • How Forrester client inquiries and challenges influenced the research into VRM solutions

Join us for our chat with guest Josh Zelonis, Principal Analyst for Security & Risk at Forrester Research and author of The Forrester Wave™: Vulnerability Risk Management, Q4 2019.
