A cute puppy and vulnerability management - unlikely combination

If it Ain’t Breaking Stuff, Fix It

Tell us when patches are disruptive? Sure. But more importantly, let us know when they’re not, information that’s potentially much more actionable.

trackd is bringing crowdsourcing and collective defense to vulnerability remediation and patch management

trackd Secures $3.35MM Seed Funding to Bring Its Novel Approach to Vulnerability Remediation to the Enterprise Security Market

“Innovation in vulnerability management has been scarce over the past decade, and trackd is blowing up that narrative with a solution that we believe can have a material impact on remediation timeframes,” noted Geoff Gilton SVP, Technology at Service Credit Union, an early adopter and design partner. “We’re excited to be part of the process to bring this technology to the infosec community.”
