Vulnerability Threat Trends

Vulnerability Threat Trends

At the close of 2012, NSS Labs performed a comprehensive analysis of vulnerability data to identify industry-wide threats and trends for the last 10 years. Despite massive security investments by the software industry, vulnerability disclosures rose considerably in 2012. Several additional observations make the security landscape of 2012 stand out significantly compared to previous years.

As with all NSS Labs group tests, there was no fee for participation. All testing was conducted independently and was not paid for by any vendor.
