Global Vulnerability Management Market, Forecast to 2023

Global Vulnerability Management Market, Forecast to 2023

The Vulnerability Management Market holds true to four foundational principles while simultaneously building new complementary functionality and creating partnerships that leverage the advances in data analytics and cloud networking. The four principles are: (1) identify vulnerabilities (discovery), (2) prioritize based on severity and risk, (3) communicate vulnerability status and risk to all relevant parties (reporting), and (4) recommend proper a response.

The Vulnerability Management (VM) market is expected to reach $893.0 million in 2018 and grow to $1,637.6 million by 2023 presenting a CAGR of 12.9%.

As a mature, 20-year-old market, suppliers have their fundamentals down pat, with slight variations in performance and scale that can make the case for differentiation in certain vertical markets. However, with threats mounting, network complexity increasing, customer in-house expertise declining, and data volumes skyrocketing, customers are pushing VM suppliers to step up their game in the many areas. Most often cited are:
• Scalability
• Interoperability (with third-party tools and cross-domain)
• applications in the cloud
• Scan and assessment accuracy
• Easier implementation
• Support for cloud and hybrid deployments
• Stronger detection and coverage
• Customization

A company should not set goals to patch all known vulnerability , or even all zero-day vulnerabilities as they are published on the internet. The goal should be to patch the threats that could be exploited against your company. Trying to patch everything is a trap too many companies fall into, costing a lot of time and resources as a result of prioritizing the wrong vulnerabilities to patch. Risk and threat intelligence play a crucial role in prioritization, companies need to keep in mind that zero day vulnerabilities need to be analyzed, but there are many known vulnerabilities that don’t require immediate action.

The security industry faces a shortage of workers, making security expertise a valuable and rare asset. For many organizations, experienced cybersecurity professionals may be too costly and difficult to attract and retain. Many VM providers are changing their platforms to be much more user friendly and as intuitive as possible to be easier for any security analysts to operate.

A vulnerability management platform should provide a picture of a client’s security posture correlating the assets of the client organization, classifying their importance with the vulnerabilities identified in the scan. After detecting a vulnerability, Vulnerability Management players must provide detailed information for remediation, including when the vulnerability was published and its description as well as when the patch was published. The notification can be done via email or ticketing system.
