Vulnerability assessment and management

A vulnerability assessment is the process of identifying, quantifying, and prioritizing (or ranking) the vulnerabilities in a system.

Vulnerability assessment will let you know what vulnerabilities are found in your environment. A vulnerability management solution does that too, while additionally taking into account the setup of your infrastructure and if that makes certain vulnerabilities a greater or lesser risk.

A vulnerability management solution will also help you prioritize the potential risk of those vulnerabilities, often by checking them against known malware that can exploit them. In addition, it will give you the information on how to quickly remediate them. Most vulnerability assessment solutions do not go into this level of detail.
