Entry written by Secunia.

Copenhagen, Denmark – The IT security company Secunia today announced the immediate availability of the Secunia Security Factsheets; another innovative initiative designed to bring added value to Secunia’s customers and the IT security community, who are interested in understanding the historical development of advisories and vulnerabilities in various programs.

Released quarterly, the factsheets present data in a standardised format and outline the development in advisories and vulnerabilities for a specific application, system, or a plug-in.

For each specific program, the factsheet provides the reader with:

  • Cumulative number of advisories of the two recent 12 month periods (YoY)
  • Cumulative number of vulnerabilities of the two recent 12 month periods
  • Attack vector in # of advisories
  • Criticality in # of advisories
  • Classification of the impact of successful exploitation on the affected system
  • Solution status at the day of advisory disclosure
  • Time to patch for advisories disclosed and patched in the last 24 months

Secunia is one of the leading companies within the area of Vulnerability Intelligence and Vulnerability Management, focusing on vulnerabilities in applications, especially in 3rd-party programs; developing and supporting intelligent software solutions for effective coverage and remediation of weaknesses in IT networks. Since 2002 the company has developed from being a supplier of vulnerability information to today being the No.1 provider of vulnerability intelligence, world-renowned for its unique technology. This combination of knowledge and technology has ensured that Secunia today has one of the strongest brands in the industry and has created a strong market position.

”In the software industry we still lack coherent, standardised, and scheduled reporting of important security parameters for software products. In the finance industry, for example, key performance parameters are reported yearly or quarterly to consistently provide interested parties, and the public, with relevant information for decision-making and risk assessment. We thus created the Secunia Security Factsheets to fill this gap for our industry and help answer many questions that otherwise required extensive manual data mining.”

- Stefan Frei, Research Analyst Director, Secunia
