DVE Score relies on a unique algorithm that empowers security teams to better understand the severity of the vulnerability and the approach threat actors are taking to exploit.
FREMONT, CA: Cybersixgill, the leader in threat intelligence enablement, launched a first-of-its-kind predictive vulnerability management solution, its Dynamic Vulnerability Exploit Score (DVE). Designed to fuel rapid prioritization and mitigation of dangerous vulnerabilities using threat intelligence from the cybercrime underground, DVE Score relies on machine learning to quantify the intent of threat actors and anticipate the exploitation of a vulnerability up to 90 days in advance. This unique, data-driven insight into the inner workings of malicious hacker communities can accelerate threat response and decision making, effectively giving security teams a head start on vulnerability management.
DVE Score is generated by the continuous, AI-driven, real-time analysis of several streams of threat intelligence - including dark web discourse, code repositories, clear web, social media, blogs, and more - to propel a risk-based vulnerability management program of unparalleled prowess. Fueled by automation of the most comprehensive collection of vulnerability-related threat intelligence available on the market and organized and arranged for easy consumption, DVE Score helps security teams maximize performance and results by accelerating the pace of mitigation.
"As of today, there are over 159,000 known vulnerabilities, yet only 6 percent of them are being exploited," said Omer Carmi, VP of intelligence at Cybersixgill. "Because the vast majority of exploitation happens on the first day of a vulnerability's public release, it is crucial for security teams to understand on a real-time basis how prominent a threat is. DVE Score allows security teams to see actual threats as they emerge, saving crucial time as potential threats materialize into active ones. It provides an extra layer of real-time context that helps security teams better prioritize and manage their patching cadence. "
DVE Score relies on a unique algorithm that empowers security teams to better understand the severity of the vulnerability and the approach threat actors are taking to exploit. For each CVE, the DVE scoring algorithm supplies a timeline and an event log that includes dark web chatter as well as POC codes written by threat actors to exploit that vulnerability. Each score is backed by an audit-trail, explaining its rationale for the score. This audit-trail gives security teams visibility into the objective evidence powering the prioritization of the vulnerability, making it easier to justify actions to peers and superiors within their organization and providing visibility and governance like never before.
The new DVE Score is designed to integrate smoothly into enterprise security teams that rely on Cybersixgill's Continuous Investigation/Continuous Protection. Users can further investigate to learn more about a vulnerability's popularity, potential exploits, relevant actors, and more, generating new analysis from newly-found intelligence.
