Importance of Advanced Vulnerability Management Solutions

  1. 1. Importance of Advanced Vulnerability Management Solutions Vulnerability management is a subset of risk management that addresses IT system threats. Many IT professionals consider this process critical, complex and time consuming and are overlooked by many companies. In today’s high-tech era, data thefts are a recurring reality that makes vulnerability management essential. The industry compliance standards for instance PCI DSS, HITECH and HIPAA and many others underline the importance of monitoring network vulnerabilities and weaknesses and take this as an important chore in the compliance procedure. Network loopholes often lead to an end-to-end stream of safety updates being issued by the service providers on a periodical basis. Depending on the propensity and the percentage of safety updates issued, system administrators find it tedious to stay at the top of this demanding procedure. This overlooking enables the cyber criminals to exploit the un-patched systems and plunge into network attacks through viruses and malware. This is the crucial reason to opt in for effective vulnerability management solutions. If your organization is a medical service provider, then it is important that you invest solutions that helps you remain compliant with important laws on data security and IT compliance. In U.S, both HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act) and HITECH (Health Information Technology for Economic and Clinical Health Act) were mandated to safeguard critical patient health information. In many countries, there have been similar laws to safeguard the patient data.
