It also reminds the assignees if their tasks are not completed on-time, and escalates when necessary. All activities in an incident lifecycle can be tracked in this platform.
The Vulnerability Response application in Security Operations prioritizes the vulnerable assets. Using CMDB, it easily identifies dependencies across systems and quickly assesses the business impact of changes. Similarly, there are 4 more ServiceNow® Security Operations applications targeting different issues related to security.
