- The next generation tool for rapid handling of emerging threats
Copenhagen, Denmark – Secunia, the No.1 provider of reliable and actionable Vulnerability Intelligence, Vulnerability Assessment, and Patch Management, today announced significant enhancements to the award-winning Secunia Vulnerability Intelligence Manager (VIM).
The Secunia VIM is compliant with the vulnerability database requirements as given in the NIST Interagency Report 7511 Revision 1 (Draft), Security Content Automation Protocol (SCAP) Version 1.0 Validation Program Test Requirements (Draft), April 2009*, and includes support for Common Platform Enumeration (CPE). A primary feature is the revised reporting functionality that has been rebuilt into a modular structure, allowing for even greater customisation of reports. Additional flexibility and usability is provided by a comprehensive report configuration wizard, giving the option of including tickets or advisories within customised reports.
The enhanced Secunia VIM represents further commitment by Secunia to continuously provide the industry’s best-in-class Vulnerability Intelligence and Vulnerability Management solutions. The release is opportunely timed with a major Microsoft Patch Tuesday, so that Secunia VIM customers can gain a complete overview of the vulnerability threat landscape and effectively handle the thousands of third-party programs that could potentially compromise their IT infrastructures if left unpatched.
By equipping customers with dynamic, specialist tools to rapidly and conveniently report the current state of their IT infrastructures for compliance purposes, Secunia allows organisations to optimise their reporting procedures and increase their Return on Security Investment (ROSI).
Key benefits of the Secunia VIM include:
- Reliable and accurate Vulnerability Intelligence at your fingertips
- Personalised alerts via e-mail, SMS, and XML
- Threat intelligence covering more than 33,000 systems and applications
“The enhancements made to the Secunia VIM 3.1 are based on valuable input from our customers regarding how they would like their data presented, which subsequently fuelled the development of the new flexible reporting module. Secunia has taken report customisation to the next level by building a reporting module that can be easily adapted and further developed, thereby allowing us to take into account even more requests from our customers in the future,” comments Morten R. Stengaard, Product Manager, Secunia.
The Secunia VIM 3.1 also features additional portlets and new Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) options. Secunia VIM customers now have the ability to set custom environmental CVSS parameters for an asset list, save a custom CVSS score for any advisory, and receive a custom CVSS score for every relevant asset list in the advisory window, which are important for risk management and compliance purposes.
