Modern Strategy is Required to Manage Risk
While traditional vulnerability management (VM) systems help security teams identify, evaluate and fix vulnerabilities in their organization’s critical assets, evolving attack vectors in and out of the cloud pose a significant challenge to their effectiveness. The need for a greater understanding of cloud and endpoint resources, services, and their dynamics, is paramount to their protection.
Incorporating continuous threat intelligence with an accurate understanding of critical assets combined with prioritization based on key risk levels is essential to a responsive, modern VM strategy.
Risk Prioritization Cuts Through the Noise
Edgescan’s Risk-based Vulnerability Management (RBVM) solution reduces exposures by prioritizing remediation based on the level of risk posed to an organization by identifying, evaluating, and properly (re)configures the security of hybrid infrastructures to eliminate security blind spots. The
Edgescan RBVM solution is both pre-production and production safe providing ‘full stack’ coverage that includes web application, network layer (host/server) and API security testing.
Actionable, risk-rated vulnerability intelligence helps security teams ‘know where to focus first’ and understand exposure details, risk levels and accelerates response times.

Risk-rated vulnerability data.
Using automation combined with human intelligence, Edgescan uniquely tests for vulnerabilities that cannot be uncovered through traditional vulnerability scanning alone. Edgescan delivers validated vulnerability data and quickly rates the severity level of each exposure using a proprietary scoring process called EVSS (Edgescan Validated Security Score). Industry established risk-rating systems are also used:
- CVSS — Common Vulnerability Scoring System
- EPSS — Exploit Prediction Scoring System
- CISA KEV — CISA Known Exploited Vulnerability
Not all vulnerabilities are created equal – that is why Edgescan utilizes superior risk-based data to accelerate remediation.
Receive actionable risk intelligence with the ability to rescan on demand to ensure that your hosts and assets are fixed.
Expanding Data Lake of Vulnerability Intelligence
Edgescan uses a proprietary, extensive data lake containing millions of vulnerability examples – gleaned from real-world assessments – is shared by all solutions in the platform. When a new vulnerability is discovered, its data is added to the pool of expanding intelligence improving analytical validation.
Our data accuracy is exemplified by our unique dataset being part of the Verizon Data Breach Report (DBIR), which is the de facto standard for insights into the common drivers for incidents and breaches today.
Key Benefits of Risk-based Vulnerability Management
Verified results ensure accuracy & eliminate false positives

Schedule an assessment at any time and retest on demand, as often as you like, ensuring accuracy of changes and providing peace of mind.
Progress tracking to understand vulnerability lifecycles
Utilizing risk-based metrics and KPIs effectively track and measure your security posture over time to show improvements of your security maturity and resilience.
Risk-Based Vulnerability Management Solution FAQ
Software vulnerability management refers to the process of identifying, assessing, prioritizing, and mitigating security vulnerabilities in software applications and systems. It aims to proactively detect weaknesses that attackers could exploit, leading to potential security breaches. By regularly patching, updating, and implementing security measures, organizations can reduce the risk of cyberattacks and enhance their overall cybersecurity posture.
A vulnerability assessment solution is a software tool or service that scans and evaluates computer systems, networks, or applications to identify potential security weaknesses and critical vulnerabilities. It helps organizations detect and prioritize risks, allowing them to take proactive measures to strengthen their defenses and protect against cyber threats.
A vulnerability scanner is a software tool that scans computer systems, networks, or applications to identify security weaknesses and vulnerabilities. It automatically searches for potential entry points for cyberattacks, helping organizations assess their risk levels and take proactive measures to strengthen their defenses and protect against potential cyber threats.
Vulnerability management programs have a systematic approach to identify, evaluate, and address security vulnerabilities in an organization’s software, systems, and networks. It involves regular assessments, prioritizing risks, and implementing measures to mitigate threats, ensuring ongoing protection against cyberattacks and maintaining a robust cybersecurity posture.
