SANTA CLARA, Calif., January 9, 2024 – NSFOCUS, a global provider of intelligent hybrid security solutions, today announced that NSFOCUS has been named a Major Player in the IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Risk-Based Vulnerability Management Platforms 2023 Vendor Assessment (doc #US50302323, November 2023).
IDC MarketScape vendor analysis model is designed to provide an overview of the competitive fitness of ICT suppliers in a given market. The research methodology utilizes a rigorous scoring methodology based on both qualitative and quantitative criteria that results in a single graphical illustration of each vendor’s position within a given market. The Capabilities score measures vendor product, go-to-market and business execution in the short-term. The Strategy score measures alignment of vendor strategies with customer requirements in a 3-5-year timeframe. Vendor market share is represented by the size of the icons.
The report points out that the Risk-Based Vulnerability Management (RBVM) platform helps customers prioritize vulnerabilities because scan results show hundreds of thousands of vulnerabilities for large organizations. The huge number is discouraging, and security teams do not even know where to start resolving them. Risk-based platforms help users focus on the vulnerabilities that present the greatest risk to the organization, not simply those with the highest Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) score.
NSFOCUS, which offers a vulnerability management solution and a vulnerability scanning system depending on the customer’s requirements, was positioned in the Major Players Category of the report.
NSFOCUS Threat and Vulnerability Management (TVM) platform brings in its proprietary threat intelligence into its scanning solution. Based on the intelligence-led Vulnerability Prioritization Technology (VPT), it supports innovative prioritization algorithms for assessing vulnerabilities from the perspectives of assets, threats, defense, and vulnerabilities around the context of prioritization. As a centralized platform, TVM can aggregate vulnerabilities from multiple sources for unified fusion analysis. With TVM, NSFOCUS provides professional and effective security analysis and repair suggestions to minimize attack threats and provide a complete vulnerability lifecycle solution.
- Professional cloud-based intelligence support
- Fusion analysis of multisource asset vulnerabilities
- Context-based vulnerability prioritization
- Convenient vulnerability repair suggestions and downloads
NSFOCUS Remote Security Assessment System (RSAS) can efficiently and comprehensively detect various vulnerability risks present in the network. In addition to traditional system scanning, web scanning, and configuration verification scanning, NSFOCUS has expanded to cover new scenarios such as cloud computing, IoT/OT, container image, code audit, and asset detection.
NSFOCUS offers visualizations that show the relationships between assets and their exposures, helping mitigate exposures before threat actors can exploit them and achieve continuous risk convergence. With years of practical experience in attack and defense, NSFOCUS has expanded its focus from traditional security assessment to attack surface management, continuous threat exposure management (CTEM), and other viewpoints. This holistic approach enables our cusomers to manage defense risks and exposure risks beyond known or publicly disclosed vulnerabilities effectively. Moreover, NSFOCUS’s commitment extends to the ongoing development and enhancement of integrated solutions, built upon its professional vulnerability scanning and management products and services.
