2021 Gartner Market Guide for Vulnerability Assessment
Determine Which Vulnerability Assessment Tool is Right for Your Organization
“Vulnerability management remains a critical security operations activity that helps organizations identify assets, prevent threats and meet compliance mandates.”– Market Guide for Vulnerability Assessment, Gartner, 2021
Many Vulnerability Assessment vendors have grown beyond the discovery and assessment of traditional, on-premises IT environments and are now capable of delivering insights across the modern attack surface, including cloud, containers, operational technology (OT) and Internet of Things (IoT). However, some only deliver pieces of the solution, while others have expanded their portfolios to provide a more comprehensive offering.
To determine which vulnerability assessment solution is right for your organization, it’s important to understand the use cases and capabilities each vendor supports, and compare those with your needs ― and determine which will help you maximize the efficiency of your vulnerability assessment program.

- Understand the coverage and capabilities of a wide range of vulnerability assessment solutions
- Get insights that will help you navigate vendor offerings
