With power comes responsibility. Leverage all the value of your new Single Full Stack Vulnerability Management Platform with these three tips.
You finally have decided to take the plunge. There are so many good reasons to go full-stack. Let’s remind ourselves of some of the important ones:
Here are three top-of-mind items you should be considering when you first adopt a full-stack solution:
Do not cherry-pick one layer from a Single Full Stack Solution Vendor – that misses the point. Instead, pilot with a singular, full-stack solution that incorporates several layers. If you are concerned about over-investing in a solution in the pilot phase, then perhaps scope the pilot within only one business division or one geography to validate a single multi-layered experience.
In the context of Vulnerability Management – what exactly constitutes a “full-stack”?
Risk is not linear – how one communicates risk is traditionally challenging. One thousand issues with a score of 1 (Between a score of one to one hundred) yields a risk score of 1000 as opposed to one issue ranked at 98. But it’s that one 98-ranked issue that could present a significant issue for your business.
With your new composite view of risk, you can build your platform to alert you on say a considerable business concern like the 98-score vulnerability. Basically, with a full-stack single solution, you can build weighted alerts, regardless of the layer location, to signal what matters the most. And that’s the whole point of the approach – to gain that holistic view.
Remember, you now have a prepackaged singular solution. No more manual attempts at linking vulnerability source data from layer to layer. So, things like correlating a network issue with web application issues are now easily attainable. It’s much more intuitive with a combined view of risk against the entire full-stack. Indeed, your composite correlation-detecting viewpoint puts you on a level playing field (if not a superior position) to your attacker.
