“Relative Newcomer to VM” Applying Principles of Machine Learning to Automate Vulnerability Management
Montreal and New York, June 17, 2020. Delve, the vulnerability management solution leveraging machine learning to automate vulnerability management scanning and prioritization, has been included in the IDC, “Worldwide Device Vulnerability Management Market Shares, 2019: Finding the Transitional Elements Between Device Assessment Scanning and Risk-Based Remediation” (Doc # US46284720, May 2020) report. The report highlights the key players in the vulnerability management space, and identifies Delve as one of the “Vendors Who Shaped the Year,” or that “created distinctive technology in 2019.”
“IDC’s recognition of Delve in this key report continues to validate our mission to change the way enterprises conduct vulnerability management operations,” noted Gabriel Tremblay, Delve’s CEO and co-founder. “With over 20,000 new vulnerabilities disclosed in just 2019 alone, automating VM operations, particularly remediation prioritization, is not a luxury. It’s essential to meaningfully reducing enterprise vulnerability risk. Moreover, automation and intelligent prioritization are even more critical in the current environment where IT and security budgets are under pressure. ”
The IDC report highlighted several of Delve’s advanced vulnerability prioritization factors through its strategic use of AI, including continuously simulating probable attack paths throughout the network, while “learning” from existing remediation activities to help identify critical assets and predict optimal remediation strategies. In all, the Delve prioritization engine uses over 40 distinct factors, including global vulnerability trends, threat intelligence, and predictive exploitation to continuously evaluate organizational context and prioritize vulnerabilities on a given network every 5 minutes.
“Vulnerability management practitioners, be they infosec teams or IT operations groups tasked with remediation, have been overwhelmed by an endless flood of software and web application vulnerabilities,” added Norman Menz, Delve COO. “The only way to materially reduce the risk imposed by this mountain of vulnerabilities is to intelligently automate VM operations, particularly remediation prioritization. Delve is doing just that, and we very much appreciate IDC recognizing it.”
Delve (delvesecurity.com) is transforming the way enterprises conduct vulnerability management. By leveraging the power of Artificial Intelligence, a view of each vulnerability in the context of its individual characteristics within the organization, the asset's importance, and external factors, Delve delivers a meaningful, prioritized list of vulnerabilities that enables teams to reduce vulnerability risk while minimizing remediation activity. Delve was founded in 2014 and has offices in Montreal, New York, and San Francisco.
