Advanced Vulnerability Risk Scoring and Prioritization

The number of known vulnerabilities continues to grow drastically, and has continued to challenge security and operations teams to keep pace. One of the biggest problems is accurately determining which vulnerabilities present the greatest risk so remediation efforts can be prioritized. Most vulnerability management tools use crude measurements of vulnerability risk, so it’s impossible to know where to start.

To address this problem, Tripwire has developed the Vulnerability Risk Score. This score combines three key vulnerability attributes in a computation that estimates the risk of a vulnerability. These scores can range from zero to greater than 50,000, giving you the most precise metric for vulnerability prioritization available today.
