Vulnerability Remediation platforms

2022. New Relic enters the security market with its new vulnerability management service
New Relic, which has long been known for its observability platform, is entering the security market today with the launch of a new vulnerability management service. Aptly named New Relic Vulnerability Management, the service aggregates data from both its own native vulnerability detection system and third-party tools, giving security, DevOps, SecOps and SRE teams a single service for monitoring their software stack for vulnerabilities. The company argues that one if its major differentiators is that this new tool can integrate with third-party security tools. This in turn should help teams prioritize which security risks to focus on (because there are always more than any team can handle), with the new service also helping them to identify which actions to take to remediate those risks).
2022. Vicarius raises $24M to build out its vulnerability remediation platform
Vicarius, a New York-based startup that has developed an autonomous vulnerability remediation platform, has raised $24 million in Series A funding to protect organizations from the next major supply-chain attack. Today the process from vulnerability disclosure to patch release, deployment and testing takes on average four to six months, and during this time new vulnerabilities could be introduced, putting the organization at risk of a SolarWinds-style intrusion or Log4j attack. That’s what Vicarius wants to change. The startup’s cloud-based platform consolidates down the vulnerability remediation process, and analyses proprietary and third-party applications for vulnerabilities.
2021. SecurityScorecard snags $180M to measure a company’s security risk
SecurityScorecard, the company that helps companies understand the security risk of its vendors by providing each one with a letter grade based on a number of dimensions, has raised $180 million Series E. SecurityScorecard instantly identifies vulnerabilities, active exploits, and advanced cyber threats to help you rigorously protect your business and strengthen your security posture – from an outside-in perspective, enabling you to see what a hacker sees.
2021. Vulcan Cyber raises $21M for its vulnerability remediation platform
Tel Aviv-based Vulcan Cyber, a cybersecurity startup that helps businesses prioritize and fix security vulnerabilities, has raised a $21 million Series B funding. The company will use the new funding to roll out new remediation solutions and launch a free risk-based vulnerability management platform under the Vulcan Free monicker. The company’s emphasis has always been on not just warning its customers about potential vulnerabilities but also helping them prioritize them based on the severity of the risk and the threat to a company’s business assets. Security teams, after all, are often overwhelmed by alerts and not every vulnerability a scanner represents is a high-priority risk for a business. The promise of Vulcan Cyber’s platform is that it helps these teams figure out where to best focus their resources.
