Knowing which vulnerabilities to fix first is critical

Identifying, prioritizing and remediating the endless amount of vulnerabilities within your IT infrastructure is an overwhelming, yet essential task. Spend time on the wrong vulnerabilities, and you could miss the one that lets criminals into your network. 
Most organizations today lack the manpower, time and resources required to effectively manage their most critical vulnerabilities. And with the cybersecurity skills shortage expected to hit 3.5 million by 2021, it will become even more difficult. 
X-Force® Red Vulnerability Management Services can manage your vulnerabilities for you. Our global vulnerability management team works with you to identify your most critical IT systems, tune existing or new scanners to explore your internal and external network infrastructure, identify the most critical vulnerabilities exposing those systems, and remediate those vulnerabilities in a prioritized fashion. 
Using attack correlation and intelligence sources, the X-Force Red team identifies if a vulnerability is actively being weaponized. Combining that intelligence with knowing which assets matter most to your organization, drives a true risk-based approach to effective vulnerability prioritization. 
Tired of false positives? The X-Force Red team validates the vulnerability is real and exploitable before it is sent to your security team.
