Core Security Strengthens its Position as Industry Leader in Vulnerability Management

ATLANTA, GA (January 20, 2017) - Core Security®, a leader in Vulnerability, Access Risk Management and Network Detection and Response, today announced the release of Core Impact 2017 R1, the comprehensive software solution for identifying, assessing and testing security vulnerabilities and Core Vulnerability Insight 5.5, for vulnerability management. The new updates continue Core Security’s commitment, dedication, and focus on vulnerability management.

Core Impact enables organizations to identify the most pressing risks across a network by replicating attacks that pivot across systems, devices, and applications, revealing how chains of exploitable vulnerabilities open paths to mission-critical systems and data, providing visibility into the effectiveness of endpoint defenses. The new Core Impact 2017 R1 includes several updates:

  • Ability to launch Powershell natively on target systems
  • Customizable reports
  • Remediation validation
  • Enhanced, stealthier agents for low bandwidth environments 
  • Custom HTTP headers for WebApps
  • Web Apps attack improvements
  • Ability to assign multiple hosts or networks to teaming members in teaming mode


With today’s dynamic threat landscape and the rise of additional regulatory requirements, more companies are recognizing the need for comprehensive penetration testing that helps them understand how attacks are traversing their networks. By providing improved visibility into an enterprise’s endpoint defenses, Core Impact 2017 R1 enables security and IT teams to evaluate their organization’s ability to detect, prevent and respond to real-world, multi-staged threats across a broad range of risk areas.

Core Vulnerability Insight 5.5 enhances an organization’s vulnerability management process and protects critical business assets by prioritizing and validating vulnerabilities. Massive amounts of vulnerabilities are generated as a result of both network and web scanning activities at medium and large organizations, making the need for vulnerability intelligence solutions essential.

Core Vulnerability Insight consolidates and prioritizes vulnerability management initiatives enterprise-wide by consolidating multiple vulnerability scans across vendors, while matching known exploits and simulating attacks. The value of Vulnerability Insight is that it provides a clear set of target systems based on the analytics it performs.

Core Vulnerability Insight 5.5 includes the following new enhancements:

  • Support for 750K assets
  • Campaigns of up to 50K assets
  • Migration to Redhat 7.1.x Enterprise
  • Continued conversion from Adobe Flex to HTML5
  • Certified support AWS EC2
