Edgescan 2019 Vulnerability Statistics Report – Eoin Keary

This annual report aims to demonstrate the state of full stack security based on edgescan data for the previous year. The edgescan report has become a reliable source for truly representing the global state of cybersecurity. This year we took a deeper look at vulnerability metrics from a known vulnerability (CVE) and visibility standpoint. We still see high rates of known/patchable vulnerabilities which have working exploits in the wild, which possibly demonstrates it is hard to patch production systems effectively on a consistent basis.  Data from this report contributed to the Verizon DBIR (Data Breach Investigations Report).
