The cost of an exploited vulnerability due to a cyber-attack can be devastating to your business. Your confidential information, intellectual property, and employees are the valuable data points that make up your brand and must be protected.

According to Forbes, cybercrimes are at an all-time high with external hackers being linked to 93 percent of reported cases. Simply focusing on patching the most common vulnerabilities is not enough and can leave you exposed to potential attacks. While running a successful business, it can feel overwhelming and impossible to know everything. However, with Flexera’s software vulnerability management solutions, you don’t have to.

A partner you can trust

Flexera’s software vulnerability management is powered by Secunia Research. Since 2002, Secunia’s team of researchers have been dedicated to building databases of the most accurate and reliable sources of vulnerability intelligence. Secunia Research has identified and documented vulnerabilities on more than 65,000 applications and allows users to suggest software that can be added to the database. With 95 percent of valid vulnerabilities being published on the same day they are disclosed, users can expect Flexera’s vulnerability intelligence to be fast and reliable.

Meet security compliance standards to maintain business continuity

Prioritizing the needs of your company is vital, but many overlook the importance of effective prioritization in vulnerability assessment and instead focus on newsworthy breaches at the expense of criticalities that have broader impact.

As you likely already know, you can’t remediate all the vulnerabilities at once in your organization. Time and resources are finite, and vulnerabilities are ever-expanding. But Secunia Research makes this task easier with intelligence to identify, prioritize, and remediate the most critical threats first while keeping product security best practices in mind.

Take prioritizing your vulnerabilities further by exploring the various avenues provided by Secunia advisories.

A criticality rating and metrics using the common vulnerability scoring system (CVSS) helps prioritize threats and offer best practices for your products.
