The security provider analyzed vulnerability data collected from over two million assets across 10 markets, over a 12-month period to November 2019. It looked at various parameters across this data including OWASP Top 10 and CWE weakness information.
It found that in the Netherlands, 50% of the vulnerabilities discovered were classified as high-risk, versus 43% in the UK. These were significantly higher than most other countries, aside from Brazil (47%).
Japan had the lowest number of high-risk vulnerabilities at less than 10%.
Unfortunately, organizations are giving attackers a helping hand by failing to mitigate these risks swiftly. The average time to patch is 105 days, while the average time for a bug to be identified and exploited has dropped to just 15 days.
