Vulnerable does not equal exploitable. In fact, the common ratio between vulnerable in theory and exploitable in practice is 1:100. So how can security teams focus on the true weakness in the vulnerability haystack? The answer lies in the context of a vulnerability, its compensating controls, and the data it leads to.
Automated security validation is an advanced approach to testing the integrity of all cybersecurity layers, combining continuous coverage and risk prioritization for effective mitigation of security gaps.
This approach provides a true view of current security exposures by emulating real-life attacks, enabling an impact-based remediation plan rather than chasing thousands of vulnerabilities, so security teams can know exactly where they stand and confidently strive towards maximum security readiness.
