Mean time to remediate (MTTR). Unless you’re measuring it in minutes, it’s too long. Is automated remediation the answer?

In our Fourth Field Guide, we tackle automated remediation, including six use cases with time saved. From your ancient, time-consuming process to one that leverages new change management processes and recent technological advances, read on to evolve.

What are Common Vulnerability Remediation Delays?

 

What’s slowing you down? Usually one of two issues. The first can be mechanical – your organization lacks the technology to automatically distribute patches across all its assets. The second is more cultural and related to change management policy or the processes and procedures that your organization has to minimize the risk of disruption during production changes. This field guide can help you manage these and accelerate your response.
