SAN ANTONIO, Oct. 04, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Defense, Inc, a security technology and services provider and TAG Cyber, today announced the VM3 (Vulnerability Management Maturity Model) Assessment. The assessment will help large and small enterprises gain actionable intelligence on their vulnerability management program in under five minutes. As part of a program launched to help organizations bolster security, the first 250 respondents to complete the survey during October, which is National Cyber Security Awareness Month, will receive a free topical retention aid to heighten and maintain security awareness with both the organizations’ employees and customers.

“Vulnerability management is a cornerstone element of information security programs,” said Ed Amoroso, founder and CEO of TAG Cyber. “Enterprises need to determine if they are doing everything they can to fully leverage the data protection benefits of a comprehensive vulnerability management program.  This maturity assessment provides effective insight into an organizations current standing and ways in which they can further enhance this essential information security program element.”

“Through 2020, 99% of vulnerabilities exploited will continue to be ones known to security and IT professionals for at least one year,” said Gordon MacKay, EVP/CTO at Digital Defense. “We are at a point where most responsible organizations have a vulnerability management program in place, but these companies need better understanding about the maturity level of these systems and if they are fully leveraging all that vulnerability management solutions can offer.”

Upon completion of the assessment, all participants will be redirected to the VM3 Companion Guide, which will identify their level of maturity and provide recommendations on how to elevate their VM program. Aggregate results from the VM3 Survey will also be analyzed and compiled into a new VM3 Annual Report that is scheduled to be published in December.
