Cyber security is a hot topic this year and continues to become a top priority for many organizations. The news is filled with reports of breaches, many through known software vulnerabilities that have cost companies huge amounts of money and tarnished their reputation. So how can an IT organization keep track of new vulnerabilities that have been discovered and ensure that those applications are patched in their environments?
End user computing, Data Center Managers and Application Packagers all play a role in ensuring that software applications are verified prior to deployment and that new security patches are applied quickly and consistently when new Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) are released.
Flexera Software can help these teams to:
- Respond Faster to New Security Vulnerabilities
Automatic notification about new security patches from software vendors enables the application packaging teams to keep up with releases that are more frequent and ensure applications are up to date.
- Focus Resources on the Most Critical Software Security Patches
Each security vulnerability is assigned a criticality rating that helps prioritize which updates need to be rushed and which ones will have minimal impact in your environment. Prioritized security updates help ensure packagers know which security updates are the most important to package first.
- Reduce Custom Packaging Work with Prepackaged Security Updates
Reduce the number of patches the packaging team has to package by utilizing Corporate Software Inspector prepackaged security updates to simplify and fast track security patching of the most common applications.
