See It In Action

The AppSOC platform ingests Feeds data from First.org Exploit Prediction Scoring System (EPSS) and aggregates it with security data from hundreds of other vendors. The solution automatically consolidates and deduplicates findings to reduce noise. Risk scoring is normalized across tools, and threats are correlated across attack surfaces.

AppSOC’s advanced contextual risk scoring prioritizes all results factoring in your business context. This includes, but goes far beyond traditional CVSS scoring, prioritizing the most critical vulnerabilities based on severity, exploitability, asset criticality, data classification, and network exposure. The results can eliminate more than 95% of noisy, redundant, and non-critical issues, so you can focus on what matters most.

AppSOC’s intuitive dashboard provides both executive summaries and technical views allowing you to drill-down and see the details or roll-up views across applications, business units or organizations.

Using data from First.org and other third-party products, AppSOC also maps software dependencies across the entire application hierarchy including libraries, microservices, applications, and hosts.

AppSOC’s integration with the Exploit Prediction Scoring System (EPSS) from First.org, brings a new level of precision and intelligence to vulnerability management. EPSS provides a data-driven approach to predicting the likelihood of a vulnerability being exploited in the wild. By incorporating EPSS scores, AppSOC allows security teams to prioritize vulnerabilities not just based on their severity but also on the actual risk of exploitation. This means that teams can focus their resources on the vulnerabilities that pose the most significant threat, reducing the attack surface more effectively and efficiently.

AppSOC Heatmap enriched by EPSS Exploitability integration

The integration of EPSS into AppSOC enhances the platform's risk assessment capabilities. Traditional vulnerability management systems often rely solely on CVSS scores, which assess the severity of vulnerabilities but do not account for the likelihood of exploitation. EPSS fills this gap by providing real-time exploitability predictions, enabling more informed decision-making. By leveraging EPSS data, AppSOC can offer more nuanced and actionable insights, helping organizations to better allocate their security resources and mitigate risks more strategically.

Key Benefits 

  • Data-Driven Prioritization: EPSS scores help prioritize vulnerabilities based on the likelihood of exploitation, ensuring resources are focused on the most significant threats.
  • Enhanced Risk Assessment: Combines EPSS predictions with traditional CVSS scores for a more comprehensive understanding of vulnerability risks.
  • Improved Decision-Making: Provides actionable insights that help security teams make informed decisions on vulnerability remediation.
  • Better Alignment: Facilitates communication between security and business teams, ensuring critical vulnerabilities are addressed promptly and efficiently.
