Countless studies and analyst recommendations suggest the value of improving security during the software development life cycle rather than trying to address vulnerabilities in software discovered after widespread adoption and deployment. The justification is clear.For software vendors, costs are incurred both directly and indirectly from security flaws found in their products. Reassigning development resources to create and distribute patches can often cost software vendors millions of dollars, while successful exploits of a single vulnerability have in some cases caused billions of dollars in losses to businesses worldwide. Vendors blamed for vulnerabilities in their product's source code face losses in credibility, brand image, and competitive advantage.

"What’s your vulnerability assessment style? Are you scanning weekly, monthly or quarterly? And, what does your scanning habit reveal about the maturity of your organization’s vulnerability assessment practices, a critical part of cyber hygiene? These are the key questions Tenable Research set out to answer in our Cyber Defender Strategies Report. We discovered four common vulnerability assessment strategies in use today. These strategies tell us how mature an organization’s vulnerability discovery process is – and help us identify ways to improve. Download the report now to: - Learn what the four vulnerability assessment styles tell us about cyber risk maturity. - Compare your vulnerability assessment strategy to these four common scanning styles. - Find out what steps you can take today to improve your vulnerability assessment strategy – no matter where you are on the maturity scale."

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.
