According to the SANS 2014 Critical Security Controls survey, security managers see moving to continuous security monitoring and vulnerability mitigation as the foundation for reducing breaches. While the value is clear, the obstacles to assessing vulnerabilities more frequently and more accurately have slowed adoption. However, many enterprises have invested in improved processes, more advanced security products and threat-driven prioritization approaches to show immediate and measurable increases in both the effectiveness and the efficiency of their security programs.

During this SANS What Works webcast, a Global Director of IT security will provide details of his deployment of Rapid7 Nexpose to reduce vulnerabilities and security risks by using Rapid7 Nexpose as a Vulnerability Management Solution.

Join SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends John Pescatore and Chris Prewitt to hear details on the selection, deployment and experience using Rapid7 Nexpose. The webcast will contain a discussion of lessons learned and best practices as well as detail the metrics used to demonstrate the value of Rapid7 Nexpose.
