How to choose a vulnerability risk management (VRM) vendor

In The Forrester Wave™: Vulnerability Risk Management, Q4 2019, Forrester analyzed VRM vendors’ current offering based on eight different criteria, including:

  • Risk-based prioritization to prioritize issues based on asset criticality, network exposure and vulnerability severity.
  • Metrics and reporting to assist organizations in understanding their current risk posture and VRM program success.
  • Asset criticality to help customers understand what internet-exposed assets they may not be aware of. 
  • Vulnerability severity to leverage cyber intelligence to determine and communicate vulnerability severity.
  • Vulnerability enumeration to interrogate systems to identify weaknesses and vulnerabilities.

According to Forrester, “Many VRM solutions are limited and fail to provide meaningful prioritization and metrics on the health of your VRM program. Vendors with improved prioritization and reporting are pushing the market forward.”*
