Understanding the Threatscape Report

The Readiness “Threatscape” report summarizes your risk of not applying this month’s patches, using all publicly-available vulnerability data.

It’s important to note that it’s equally important to know the risk to your applications if you DO apply this month’s patches. This is of course is dependent on:

  • The current state (version and build) of each platform (Windows, Office, Browser, etc.).
  • Which applications are part of your portfolio.

Luckily, determining the risk of applying patches is easy (and fast and dynamic, thanks to our Dynamic Platform Assessment tool.

To understand what will happen when you apply this month’s patches, contact us and assess your first 25 applications for free.

For each major platform, the pie chart shows the breakdown of vulnerabilities rated critical, important, moderate and low. These match the tables below the graph.

The size of the pie represents the total number of vulnerabilities. The larger the pie, the more vulnerabilities present.

The position of the pie on the vertical axis represents the relative risk to your application portfolio. The higher the position, the higher the exploitability.
