Vulnerability management is defined as the systematic finding and elimination of weakspots or security flaws in an IT network.
Most of the successful attacks through a business network could be prevented with vulnerability management. This book is all about what you can do to manage vulnerabilities automatically and keep your network safe from attack. “Vulnerability Management For Dummies” simply explains the essential steps of vulnerability management and shows you how to select the right tools. In five succinct parts it leads the reader through an essential understanding of the need for vulnerability management and provides a guide to the essential best practice steps, the various options availability, the pros and cons of automated vulnerability management and finally provides a valuable ten-point checklist for removing vulnerabilities in the network.

It is an application that requires management, security and audit teams to collaborate with the production team to effectively identify and remediate security and compliance issues in a timely manner,” said Philippe Courtot, CEO and chairman of Qualys. “Our goal in publishing this book in collaboration with our customers, which we are very thankful for, is to provide real-world examples on how do vulnerability management in order to address the security and compliance issues facing all of us.”
