When a new vulnerability is disclosed, a race begins between defenders and attackers to execute their action chain to either exploit or mitigate the vulnerability.
In most cases, attackers have a head-start, typically of several days, but in many cases there may be a gap of even weeks to months. The gap between when attackers are able to weaponize and exploit a vulnerability and when defenders can assess if they are exposed and deploy mitigating controls is a window of vulnerability for organizations and one of opportunity for attackers. Adversaries can often act with impunity if no additional mitigating controls are deployed.
Find out how your security team can improve their mean time to respond and ultimately minimize risk as threats evolve and increase while dwell time decreases.
