Stop fearing vulnerabilities. Reduce risks with MVM.

Managed Vulnerability Management Services

  • Lower risk exposure with the #1 VRM solution
    Manage, execute, and prioritize remediation across your environment with 20 years of vulnerability risk management (VRM) expertise by your side.

  • Develop a mature program, don’t just “check a box”
    Proactively assess risk, stay ahead of threats, and attain full ecosystem visibility. Vulnerability Management (VM) is a core component of your security posture and so much more than a compliance requirement.

  • Think like an adversary, prioritize like a business
    The goal of a vulnerability management program isn’t to fix everything. It is to prioritize what has the biggest impact to reduce risk. We help you figure that out.

Vulnerability Management Services FAQs

  • What is the purpose of vulnerability management services?

    Attack surfaces and the number of bad actors grow in scope and scale every day. You may have a very capable team, but as security vulnerabilities increase, it can be difficult to manage 100% of your exposure to risk. VMaaS can help you offload day-to-day operations to experts who provide the granular focus each vulnerability demands. Vulnerability management and scanning helps extend coverage across your entire attack surface so your program can run more holistically.

  • What goes into a vulnerability management program?

    Every security organization is different. They'll usually adopt the same or similar macro processes for buildout of a VM program, but what makes it entirely unique are the specific business needs that warrant consideration in the program’s workflows.

    It is the job of your team to identify those criteria – or you can partner with our VMaaS experts to help you define them – but typically a VM program should include: complete visibility into your IT environment; tailored reporting for various audiences; risk prioritization; automation of processes across your ecosystem.

  • How do you manage vulnerability management?

    Managing vulnerability management program processes requires overseeing the identification, evaluation, treatment, and reporting of vulnerabilities in your environment. This risk-management process is an evolution, as new vulnerabilities are discovered and new systems added to an environment. It’s also an exercise in prioritization as your team goes about measuring the severity level of each vulnerability.

  • What are common methods for managing vulnerabilities?

    Common methods for vulnerability management include:

    • Acceptance – Taking no action to fix or otherwise lessen the likelihood/impact of a vulnerability being exploited. This is typically justified when a vulnerability is deemed a low risk, and the cost of fixing the vulnerability is too great.
    • Mitigation – Lessening the likelihood and/or impact of a vulnerability causing greater exposure to risk and/or exploitation. This is sometimes necessary when a proper fix or patch isn’t yet available, and is ideally used as a temporary fix until remediation can be achieved.
    • Remediation – Fully fixing or patching a vulnerability so it can’t be exploited. If possible, this is the ideal treatment option for any and every vulnerability

"[Without Rapid7’s Managed VM], I’d estimate we would need at least two additional people, and that would only be staff who could identify what needed to be fixed, not even handling the remediation side."
