Eoin Kary, CEO and Co-founder at edgescan:  

Continuous assessment of websites and assets is the key to keeping pace with such vulnerabilities. Vulnerabilities won’t fix themselves and won’t stop existing anytime soon.  

Deploying a continuous visibility and vulnerability assessment model is the only way to detect and keep track of such issues. It’s surprising how many organisations don’t keep pace with continuous change and flux: without visibility over the potential entry points, there is little that organisations can do to prevent them becoming known when exploited by malicious actors. I’m afraid this is part of life if one wishes to maintain a secure posture.
