Software supply chain security vendor Rezilion has announced the release of a new agentless solution for vulnerability management. It enables security teams to monitor exploitable software attack surfaces in runtime without using an agent, reducing the time and overhead required for traditional runtime-based software vulnerability analysis, according to the firm. Rezilion’s new solution covers all versions of Windows and Linux across 12 code languages, it said.
Effective prioritization and remediation of software vulnerabilities can be a significant challenge for organizations, with attackers increasingly targeting software supply chains to exploit weaknesses. The State of Vulnerability Management in DevSecOps report revealed that organizations are losing thousands of hours in time and productivity dealing with backlogs of vulnerabilities that they have neither the time or resources to tackle effectively. More than half of 634 IT and IT security practitioners said their backlog consists of more than 100,000 vulnerabilities and the average number of vulnerabilities in backlogs overall is 1.1 million, according to the data.
