Itasca, IL - March 28, 2017 Flexera Software, the leading provider of Software Vulnerability Management solutions for application producers and enterprises, announced today a renewed agreement with the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC) to offer verified software vulnerability intelligence alerts to critical sector entities worldwide.
Through this enhanced agreement, members supported by FS-ISAC receive continuous notifications and intelligence regarding software vulnerabilities for selected products specific to their industries. This information is critical for the financial services industry in order to enhance risk assessment and mitigation. FS-ISAC also now provides services to other industries, making this agreement extensible to a number of organizations - including those in legal services, utilities and oil & gas sectors.
"Flexera Software is a dedicated industry partner, supporting FS-ISAC's mission to help assure the resilience and continuity of the global financial services infrastructure, and affiliated sectors," said Cindy Donaldson, Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of Sector Services at FS-ISAC. "As the global information-sharing channel for four industries, we receive and relay timely, actionable intelligence on software vulnerabilities, coming directly from Secunia Research at Flexera Software, to our members."
"Flexera Software is very proud of our FS-ISAC partnership, which dates back to 2012 under the Secunia brand. As specialists in vulnerability research, we understand the importance of collaboration between information and IT Security professionals across industries, and fully support information-sharing initiatives," said Jim Ryan, Chief Executive Officer at Flexera Software. "We are happy to provide important pieces of information in this complex puzzle of risk assessment and mitigation, and help FS-ISAC and its member financial services firms. We also see this data helping commercial security firms, federal, state & local government agencies and law enforcement. We look forward to strengthening our partnership in the years to come, especially given these threats are not going away anytime soon."
The vulnerability advisories shared with FS-ISAC are verified, normalized and analyzed by the same team of researchers and experts that power Flexera's Software Vulnerability Management solutions.
