Security organizations have no problem finding vulnerabilities on enterprise networks – the volume of security data is constantly growing. The greater challenge is sifting through this data to determine which situations present the greatest risk to the business and prioritizing remediation efforts. Using attack path analytics enables a strategic, risk-based approach to security remediation.
Most security assessments combine broad vulnerability scanning with deep configuration audits of critical devices. This approach leaves many gaps through which attacks can operate. Attack path analytics filter this data with information about host roles, activities, and trust relationships to identify open paths through which malware and attackers can gain access to valuable data and resources.
