Vulnerability Management

In computer security, the term vulnerability is applied to a weakness in a system which allows an attacker to violate the integrity of that system. Vulnerabilities may result from weak passwords, software bugs, a computer virus or other malware, a script code injection, a SQL injection or misconfiguration.<br><br>A security risk is classified as a vulnerability if it is recognized as a possible means of attack. A security risk with one or more known instances of working and fully-implemented attacks is classified as an exploit.

White Paper Published By: VMware, Inc     Published Date: Dec 05, 2013
VMware® Horizon Mirage™ is a layered image management solution that separates a PC into logical layers that either IT or the user own and manage. IT-owned layers are typically OS and corporate applications while user-owned layers consist of their own files and applications. The Horizon Mirage solution enables: • Updates to individual IT-managed layers, such as core operating system files and common business applications, without disrupting other layers, all while maintaining user data and installed applications. • Simpler backup by taking snapshots of layered images, enabling desktop disaster recovery and helping to ensure continued end-user productivity.

Organizations have traditionally viewed vulnerability scanners as a tactical product, largely commoditized and only providing value around audit time. But with limited resources and a real need to reduce risk, organizations need the ability to pull in threat-related data, combine it with an understanding of what is vulnerable, and figure out what is at risk. This report from Securosis outlines how yesterday's vulnerability scanners are evolving to meet this need, emerging as a much more strategic component of an organization's control set than in the past. Learn how vulnerability scanners are evolving to provide real value beyond vulnerability reports for auditors - emerging as a strategic component helping organizations effectively lower risks.

Vulnerabilities in web applications are a major vector for cyber-crime. In large organizations, vulnerable web applications comprised 54% of all hacking breaches and led to 39% of compromised records, according to the 2012 Data Breach Investigation Report by Verizon Business. This paper describes how large enterprises can effectively discover, catalog and scan web applications to control this major risk vector as part of their organization’s overall vulnerability management program.

A zero-day threat is a vulnerability that becomes known to the vendor on the same day it becomes known to the public, meaning IT assets targeted by a zero-day threat won't have a patch available when it's needed. However, zero-day attacks operate in a realm of the probable - they work only because there are exploitable vulnerabilities within IT systems. Many of these can, and should be prevented. This guide describes why organizations are vulnerable to zero-day attacks, and what you can do to add a zero-day offense to your existing vulnerability management processes to protect your organization's assets and data.
