Core Security Announces Integration with McAfee Vulnerability Manager
Next Step in Growing Relationship Between the Two Companies
Boston, MA.—June 5, 2013 – Core Security®, a leading provider of predictive security intelligence solutions, today announced that it has completed an integration between its Core Insight solution and McAfee Vulnerability Manager. This integration is now McAfee Compatible and provides McAfee customers with the ability to configure and manage McAfee Vulnerability Manager scans as part of a Core Insight campaign. The integration of the two solutions builds on the existing relationship between the two companies. Earlier this year Core announced it had joined the McAfee Security Innovation Alliance (SIA) program.
McAfee Vulnerability Manager offers scalability and performance for network and application scanning. McAfee Vulnerability Manager features include active or passive scanning for all network and application elements, threat identification and correlation, policy auditing and compliance assessments, flexible reporting options, and broad and deep content coverage.
Core Insight consolidates, analyzes and prioritizes the overwhelming amounts of security data that many security experts face. Insight delivers in-depth analysis of this data to accurately identify attack paths, based on known vulnerabilities and exploits, which can be used to compromise network assets. Insight captures this data to identify the actual vulnerabilities, which in turn allows security personnel to remediate the identified network assets far more efficiently. This knowledge allows for better patch management and uses security resources more efficiently and cost-effectively. Insight’s reporting dashboard delivers customized reports based on the user’s role, executive to technical.
“We’re excited to add this next milestone to our ongoing relationship with McAfee,” said Joseph Schramm, director strategic alliances, Core Security. “McAfee Vulnerability Manager is a market leading scanning solution, and with the ability to integrate with Insight, our joint customers will see even more value with this combined solution. McAfee’s ability to accurately identify potential vulnerabilities combined with Insight’s ability to consolidate analyze and prioritize these results mean users can respond to the highest priority issues first.”
“We are pleased that Core Security’s Insight product has achieved McAfee Compatible status,” said Ed Barry, vice president of the Security Innovation Alliance, McAfee. “Our customers face growing challenges to secure their networks and maintain compliance. Through this integration with McAfee Vulnerability manager, Core Security offers our joint customers greater efficiency and increased compliance to address their needs.”
