“We’re excited at the rate that industry is adopting the CVE naming standard,” adds Bob Martin, MITRE CVE Compatibility Lead. “In addition to the organizations that have publicly declared support for the CVE naming standard on the CVE web site, we’ve identified over 100 other organizations from around the world that are actively working to incorporate CVE support into their capabilities.”
