By Use Case

Prioritize CVEs Based on Financial Impact with ThreatConnect RQ

Rank vulnerabilities by potential financial impact  – the more critical your asset is in terms of  impact to the business, the higher the corresponding CVE alert is prioritized.  With RQ vulnerability prioritization you can communicate the value of patching efforts to drive down risk for the company.

Communicate Risk Reduction and Value of Prioritizing CVE Alerts by Financial Impact

Unpatched vulnerabilities overwhelm most security organizations. It’s hard to keep up and even more difficult to know what to patch first. While CVSS scoring and IOCs help, they cannot prioritize alerts based on the financial risk they bring to the business. Security leaders need to be able to effectively prioritize CVE alerts by the amount of financial risk they bring to your business.

RQ computes the financial risk to your business and calculates how much risk CVE’s contribute. It provides short term commendations so you can prioritize your patching efforts and show  how much financial risk is being reduced.  RQ provides the business context you need so vulnerabilities management efforts can be counted and valued as reducing risk to the business.

Better Vulnerability Management Decisions with Business Context

RQ uses multiple factors relative to your business environment to give you a prioritized list of CVEs. This dynamic list takes into account your current patching efforts and moves new CVEs with the highest financial risk to the top of the list so you can:

  • Quickly determine which CVEs pose the greatest financial risk to your organization
  • Communicate the what risks the business has today and keep track of bigger risks as threats and digital applications evolve and change

Make your Vulnerability Management Efforts Count

RQ gives security leaders a way to prioritize CVE’s by their “Contributory Effect”. It provides short term recommendations to better allocate efforts to defend the most valuable applications first. With RQ you can:
