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.

A zero-day threat is a vulnerability that becomes known to the vendor on the same day it becomes known to the public, meaning IT assets targeted by a zero-day threat won't have a patch available when it's needed. However, zero-day attacks operate in a realm of the probable - they work only because there are exploitable vulnerabilities within IT systems. Many of these can, and should be prevented. This guide describes why organizations are vulnerable to zero-day attacks, and what you can do to add a zero-day offense to your existing vulnerability management processes to protect your organization's assets and data.

Continuous Monitoring has become an overused and overhyped term in security circles, driven by US Government mandate (now called Continuous Diagnostics and Mitigation). But that doesn’t change the fact that monitoring needs to be a cornerstone of your security program, within the context of a risk-based paradigm. This paper from Securosis discusses Continuous Security Monitoring, including how to do it, and the most applicable use cases they have seen in the real world. It also provides a step-by-step guide for things to do for each use case to move forward with a monitoring initiative.
