Secunia, a global supplier of Software Vulnerability Management products and services, has signed a Value Added Reseller agreement with specialist reseller Blue Cube Security. The agreement covers security patching products from the Secunia portfolio. Secunia was selected for its breadth of coverage of platforms and applications, also for its excellent credentials as a solution of choice for many leading application vendors.
After conducting a review of their solution portfolio, Blue Cube Security identified a gap in their portfolio for a strong patch management solution, the Secunia security patching products were selected as an ideal fit. Rob Swainson, Sales Director at Blue Cube Security commented; “At Blue Cube, we believe that creating a strong security posture starts with building a solid foundation. Patch management is a fundamental element of good cyber hygiene. By automating this vital but often overlooked area of security, Blue Cube can assist customers in identifying and prioritising critical system vulnerabilities which are often exploited as the first point of penetration into an organisation.”
Victoria Bentham, UK and Ireland Regional Director at Secunia added; “The Secunia partnership with Blue Cube Security was borne out of a joint philosophy that intelligent patch management is a fundamental component of a successful security strategy. By partnering with Blue Cube Security, Secunia continue to extend our footprint into the UK & Ireland market and we look forward to a mutually beneficial relationship.”
Evolution of vulnerability management
The proactive response to emerging security threats is one of the corner stones to protecting an organisation’s sensitive data. In 2014, 83% of vulnerabilities in the Top 50 applications had patches available on the day of disclosure. This demonstrates that it is possible for organisations to protect IT infrastructure immediately against the majority of the 15,435 vulnerabilities as they are discovered, so long as they know that the vulnerabilities exist, where they are and how much of a threat they pose to the business.
Managing complex IT estates with diverse software continues to be a huge challenge for IT departments. They need the intelligence to accurately identify and prioritise the remediation of vulnerabilities discovered. Effective vulnerability management and patch management tools are critical to achieving an improved security posture.
