Rami Sass, CEO, WhiteSource has found that for the past two years have seen an explosion in the number of software vulnerabilities being published, jumping from 6,447 in 2016 to 14,714 in 2017. Seeing as 2018 beat out the previous year with 16,521 CVEs reported, we should prepare ourselves for plenty of patching ahead in 2019.  Despite this, he notes that we need to remember that even as a rise in CVEs can be eternally frustrating and means more remediation work, it is still far more preferable to deal with these vulnerabilities early before they are exploited by attackers.See his article here.
