edgescan CEO: ‘Move the Cybersecurity Dial’ on Vulnerabilities, Patching (Infosecurity)


Speaking at Infosecurity Europe, edgescan CEO Eoin Keary talked about “moving the cybersecurity dial” when it comes to vulnerabilities and patching. Referring to statistics that edgescan released earlier this year, he said that 20% of issues they see are related to the SMB protocol, and even after that was exploited by the NotPetya ransomware in 2017, Keary said “we are still finding that,” although not everyone is vulnerable to NotPetya.
