NopSec Report Finds Organizations Overlook Known Security Vulnerabilities

New York, New York – June 2, 2015 – NopSec, a provider of precision threat prediction and remediation solutions, today released a new report, “2015 State of Vulnerability Risk Management.” The report reveals key security vulnerability issues historically and by industry, analyzes cross-industry remediation developments and highlights the effect social media has on the risk associated with security vulnerabilities. Conducted by the NopSec Labs research team, the report analyzed more than 65,000 vulnerabilities contained in the National Vulnerability Database over a 20-year period, as well as a subset of more than 21,000 of those vulnerabilities identified across customers in all industries. Analysis focused on the distribution of the Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score, access vector, and the platforms (CPE) where the vulnerabilities were found. In addition, the team assessed vulnerabilities by asset and average time to remediation by vertical and attack vector.
