Outpost24 Farsight

With this release we are pleased to announce the launch of Outpost24 Farsight, a next generation vulnerability risk management solution. Powered by Cyr3con and using advanced machine learning models that predict the likelihood of a vulnerability being weaponized and exploited in the next 12 months through an intuitive and easy to understand risk rating.

Farsight provides customers with the ability to focus on vulnerabilities that are likely to be exploited in the wild, rather than rely on CVSS or exploit available metrics.

This release marks our entry into the field of VPT and will evolve over the coming months. For more information and to see Farsight in action please contact your Outpost24 Sales representative.
