Vulnerability and patch management are important aspects of any security infrastructure as it allows proactive detection and remediation of vulnerabilities before they are actively exploited and the security compromised. Covering both Microsoft (News - Alert) Windows, Mac OSX, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, IT Operations and Security Teams are empowered to take control of the Vulnerability Threat from both Microsoft and non-Microsoft (third-party) program vulnerabilities with the Secunia (News - Alert) CSI.
Recently, the company announced the general availability of the next generation of its flagship solution the Secunia Corporate Software Inspector (CSI (News - Alert)) version 6.0.
The Secunia CSI 6.0 is a Vulnerability and Patch Management Solution that completes and targets the Patch Management process. To allow Targeted, Reliable, and Cost-efficient Patch Management, it integrates Vulnerability Intelligence, Vulnerability Scanning, and Patch Creation with Patch Deployment Tool Integration.
The new solution offers users with the unique ability to understand and evaluate their complete threat landscape, identify exactly where application vulnerabilities exist and how best to prioritize and implement remediation efforts, the company stated in a press release.
“The overall mission of the Secunia CSI 6.0 has been to empower our customers and their current infrastructure, while providing them with the best of breed vulnerability intelligence, scanning, and pre-created patch packages. We have therefore focused on developing the Secunia CSI’s integration capabilities, making the Secunia CSI 6.0 a much more useful and extensive Vulnerability and Patch Management tool”, said Morten R. Stengaard, Director of Product Management and Quality Assurance at Secunia.
In 2007, the company reported that open source browsers, such as Firefox, are more likely to have the latest security updates, rather than other proprietary Web browsers, like Internet Explorer or Opera.
