-

Typical Patch
Management Vendor *

  • Does not have an in-house vulnerability research team
  • Has a static third-party program patch catalogue which is typically limited to 20-30 vendors only. Secunia covers more than 300 vendors.
  • Has no scanning capabilities – they rely on information released by the vendors, resulting in inferior accuracy.
  • Offers only pre-packaged updates, which might result in incompatibility with IT environments and unsuitability to more complex network structures
  • Offers only limited integration for third-party deployment tools
  • Limited capabilities which are not designed for enterprises and scalability which requires additional resources
 
-

Typical Vulnerability
Management Vendor

  • Offers probe-based scanning only and has low Windows third-party detection coverage
  • No patching capability - only remediation advice and management features are provided
  • Extensive technical know-how required for deployment and utilization – very intrusive
