    Network based security advisories/risks are growing and any CXO/IT Manager needs to pay attention to these. As an example Cisco's product security incident response team (PSIRT) releases advisories on security vulnerability related information, related to Cisco products and networks. These advisories could impact both network security, availability and  compliance.There are various challenges in auditing for PSIRTS manually, like the frequency of these releases, frequency of updates and revisions to the released PSIRTs.  In addition if there are devices that are 3-5 years old and already in the process of their end of life, this makes the problem more complex.
