What is contextual prioritization?

There have been a few uninspired attempts to quantify the risk of individual vulnerabilities in the security community, most notably, the CVSS risk score offered by the National Vulnerability Database.

Others have attempted to assign a vulnerability risk score based on factors independent of – or external to – an organization’s unique network architecture.

Seasoned IT and security professionals, however, understand that a vulnerability’s criticality can’t be meaningfully assessed without accounting for its context.

In this white paper, learn all about Contextual Prioritization, which is ranking a vulnerability’s priority based on its unique network context.
