With the alarming growth in vulnerability discoveries, it is unsurprising that e-commerce companies and networks are facing more attacks from hackers than ever. In order to keep the networks secured and ensure business continuity, it is incumbent upon network administrators to constantly look out for new vulnerabilities, perform vulnerability assessment on a regular basis, and keep the networks up-to-date with the latest security patches. However, more often than not, network administrators are too busy with their own job scopes and vulnerability assessment often becomes a guideline rather than a requirement.
