I may meander but I'm exploring, not lost

Security innards


When someone foolishly lets Marketing loose on cybersecurity products, you end up with this kind of mishmash in your inbox:
"[Our product] can help you pinpoint the exact vulnerabilities that are currently active in your IT environment. Since not all vulnerabilities are threats to your organisation’s security, it’s important to focus on fixing the high-risk ones first—and fast. [Our product] gives you the intelligence to prioritise your remediation efforts to address the vulnerabilities that pose the highest risk of compromise."
It has been stuffed with a bunch of keywords to such an extent that it no longer makes sense, obscuring the value of the product. I believe there might actually be a decent new product lurking beneath all that tripe but, speaking personally, I'm not prepared to rummage through the entrails to find it.

Ho hum.
