  1. 1. Why Vulnerability Management Process is Essential for Network Security ? With the objective to globally expand, most enterprise’s and business houses today depend on the advanced internet technologies that are open and accessible. This has led to increased data thefts and cyber attacks in the recent times. Businesses today often experience severe losses monetarily and in terms of brand erosion with a third party intruder or a cyber criminal having the access to sensitive data, privileged account and essential organization data. With the increase of the healthcare forgeries, medical and healthcare companies are required to secure their confidential patient information, lest they are stolen and misused. The vulnerable corporate network has made it essential for medical enterprises and other companies to solve all network vulnerabilities on a day-to-day basis. In case an enterprise cannot keep their data safe from unwarranted security attacks, it may be necessary to deal with penalties from legal compliance authorities. Hence, today medical companies are required to take effective steps to improve their e-Governance and provide data security, thereby making vulnerability management process a pre-requisite. High-end vulnerability management programs ensure that the present security concerns within a network is detected and evaluated with the help of effective IT risk and threat management solutions cost-efficiently. A majority of progressive companies have started implementing proactive measures to combat network vulnerabilities to avoid revenue losses. Simply put, the process of vulnerability management is a discipline that helps enterprises understand the risk vulnerabilities that are present within their IT environment and ensures that the network is not compromised. Other than recognizing and removing vulnerabilities, an effective vulnerability management solution needs to also monitor network weaknesses in an ongoing manner, detect new security gaps and close the existing ones.
