New Vulnerability Scanner Benchmark Report: Only 73% Precisely Identify High & Critical-Severity Vulnerabilities

Rezilion has released a new report, the Vulnerability Scanner Benchmark, which reveals that end-users are dealing with a lack of transparency and only partially effective vulnerability scanning performance. 

In his research, Yotam Perkal, Director of Vulnerability Research of cybersecurity firm Rezilion, found that:

  • Only 73% returned relevant results out of all vulnerabilities that should have been identified.
  • Only 82% were identified correctly, regardless of vulnerabilities scanners failed to report.
  • Over 450 high and critical-severity vulnerabilities were misidentified across the 20 containers.
  • On average, the scanners failed to find over 16 vulnerabilities per container.
