Tenable Research Reveals Nearly Half of Organizations Use Strategic Vulnerability Assessment as Foundation of Cyber Defense


Study of 2,100 organizations reveals global divide in how organizations assess cyber risk

Tenable®, Inc., the Cyber Exposure company, released The Cyber Defender Strategies Report today that uses data science against real-world telemetry data to analyze how 2,100 organizations are assessing their exposure to vulnerabilities, a critical component to improving overall cybersecurity posture.

The report shows that nearly 48 percent of organizations globally have embraced strategic vulnerability assessment — defined as mature or moderately mature programs that include targeted and tailored scanning and prioritizing computing resources based on business criticality — as a foundational element of their cyber defense and a critical step toward reducing risk. Of those organizations, however, only five percent display the highest degree of maturity, with comprehensive asset coverage as a cornerstone of their programs. On the other end of the spectrum, 33 percent of organizations take a minimalistic approach to vulnerability assessments, doing the bare minimum as required by compliance mandates and increasing the risk of a business-impacting cyber event.
