Secunia joins Microsoft System Center Alliance program
Secunia joined the Microsoft System Center Alliance to further support interoperability with System Center Configuration Manager.
The Secunia Corporate Software Inspector (CSI) helps System Center Configuration Manager administrators map the entire software inventory and correlate this to vulnerability intelligence to improve visibility into the vulnerability management lifecycle.
“Secunia is delighted to join Microsoft SCA and will continue to develop innovative solutions to utilise and showcase the impressive deployment technologies residing within System Center Configuration Manager. We have received positive feedback from our customers regarding their Secunia CSI solution”, states Niels Henrik Rasmussen, CEO & Founder, Secunia.
The Secunia CSI forms part of Secunia’s portfolio of Vulnerability Intelligence & Management solutions. It provides highly detailed software inventory which is mapped to program and plug-in vulnerability intelligence, as well as vendor supplied security updates – or “patches’.
The Secunia CSI automatically repackages these security updates and pushes them to System Center Configuration Manager, allowing users to control, manage, and monitor their update deployment using System Center Configuration Manager. The Secunia CSI inspects desktops and server systems to ensure that all updates are applied correctly and all systems are compliant.
The consequences of exploitation of a vulnerability and the subsequent security breach can have a devastating impact upon an organization’s critical assets. Vulnerabilities represent the “Achilles’ Heel” of any IT system. Therefore, managing these vulnerabilities is the primary means of reinforcing the strength of any IT security infrastructure – reducing the window of opportunity for cybercriminals to exploit vulnerable programs, whilst at the same time optimizing risk management and ensuring compliance.
The Secunia CSI removes the complexity from Vulnerability Management through unified, automated deployment of critical security updates.
