Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVEs)

Common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs) are a list of publicly disclosed computer security flaws. They help IT security professionals prioritize and address critical vulnerabilities to ensure their systems are protected. MITRE corporation oversees the CVE program, with funding from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). CVEs are in other databases, including the U.S. National Vulnerability Database (NVD), the CERT/CC Vulnerability Notes Database, and various lists maintained by security advisories, vendors and researchers.

RidgeBot® support for CVEs

Deploying penetration testing within the enterprise network removes CVE risk. RidgeBot’s continuous automated pen testing discovers and protects against known and unknown CVEs. For every CVE, RidgeBot has two types of Plugins; Detection verifies if the vulnerability exists within the environment; and Exploit launches a payload to the threat in order to trigger a vulnerability.

Ridgebot is highly effective in validating system capabilities and hardening an organization’s security defense when launching new and updated apps and systems. Ridgebot’s fully automated and continuous security penetration testing system couples ethical hacking techniques with AI-driven, decision-making algorithms. RidgeBot locates vulnerable targets, then exploits the targets and prioritizes business risks within the enterprise.
