Dissecting the Trends of Security Vulnerabilities

For more than three years, Qualys has analyzed statistical vulnerability data from the largest real-world data set of network vulnerabilities, collected from 32 million live network scans. This ongoing research has led to the "Laws of Vulnerabilities," which identifies network security trends, allowing organizations to proactively protect their networks from evolving attacks and compare their remediation efforts with the rest of the industry.

In this session, Terry Ramos, director of strategic development at Qualys, will present key findings to help predict and protect against attacks. Terry will discuss:

  • progress made in the time it takes to remediate vulnerable systems;
  • impact of the latest new vulnerabilities;
  • benefits of regular security patch advisories from vendors;
  • vulnerability of emerging wireless infrastructures.

Moving Security Enforcement into the Heart of the Network

Today's network infrastructure is designed to move information traffic in a fast and reliable manner, but does not provide the necessary security enforcement capabilities to prevent attacks. This is beginning to change. Organizations realize that any system or device connected to a network can be the catalyst to a significant security incident. In this new environment, systems need to be validated before access is granted and then screened while given access.

In this session, Seth Knox, director of product marketing at Qualys, will:

  • discuss trends in security vulnerabilities from the industry's largest real-world vulnerability dataset;
  • explain the concept of network admission architecture and its components;
  • provide lessons for attendees on how this architecture will protect networks and systems from evolving threats.
