“Industry sources show an increase of vulnerabilities in third-party applications. Because of slower patch releases for these applications, consumers and organizations are more susceptible to harmful attacks.”

Frost & Sullivan’s ‘Analysis of the Global Vulnerability Research Market in Q3 2011’ delves into key market trends. It also includes the analysis of vulnerabilities by severity and comparison of affected applications, and an overview of leading market participants.

The importance of vulnerability research and the value that is provides to customers and to the security industry is clear. Secunia plays an important role within this sphere through participation in the security community, increased product integration, and the Secunia Vulnerability Coordination Reward Program (SVCRP) for independent researchers.
Frost & Sullivan confirms, “In addition to conducting vulnerability research, Secunia maintains one of the largest privately owned vulnerability databases. Secunia provides quarterly and annual reports, including their Security Fact Sheets, which cover more than 30,000 applications and systems.”

Indeed, Secunia’s vulnerability research database forms the core element of standalone products the Secunia Vulnerability Intelligence Manager (VIM) and the Secunia Corporate Software Inspector (CSI). The Secunia CSI in turn integrates with popular patch management tools such as Microsoft WSUS and SCCM.

With cybercriminals shifting their focus from operating systems to third-party applications, Frost & Sullivan concludes, “Security companies that offer vulnerability reporting and coordinating services for independent researchers provide tremendous value to the security community and software vendors.”
