TECH SPOTLIGHT - Are Vulnerability Scanners Dead? Transcending CVEs for Vulnerability Management

We’ve relied on vulnerability scanners to assess our assets and generate reports containing IP addresses and their associated CVEs. CVEs add value but only represent a subset of your risk exposure. They miss critical variables such as the presence and state of endpoint IT management and security controls, making them largely obsolete when relied upon in a vacuum. 

Does it matter how many CVEs you detect if impacted devices have no remediation controls? A modern approach to vulnerability management must transcend the realm of CVEs and encompass exposures related to environmental vulnerabilities—missing endpoint controls, outdated or non-communicative controls, and misconfigurations.
