Often overlooked as part of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy, patch management helps secure and monitor networks, allowing companies to verify licenses and software updates and reduce risk to the network via outdated or compromised software.
Flexera’s patch management suite, Corporate Software Inspector (CSI), will help ESET customers cover a wider range of potential security threats. In particular, CSI addresses the serious risks that come with the intensive adoption of multiple software and application types, and their need for regular updates. As a result of this newly established relationship, ESET customers now have the option to add CSI as part of their security strategy via their existing ESET reseller.
According to Flexera Software Vulnerability Review 2016, the number of software vulnerabilities detected in 2015 increased by 39 percent over the course of the five-year trend and by 2 percent from 2014.
Flexera’s CSI empowers IT operations teams to continuously identify vulnerable applications and apply security patches — before vulnerabilities can be exploited. The solution leverages verified vulnerability intelligence and assesses over 20,000 applications, delivering tested patch packages for non-Microsoft applications, accelerating identification of vulnerabilities, driving their prioritization and reducing time to patch. CSI also integrates seamlessly with Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and Windows Server Update Services (WSUS) for patch deployment.
Launched in 2013, the ESET Technology Alliance is an integration partnership that aims to better protect businesses by offering a range of complementary IT security solutions. All members of the ESET Technology Alliance are carefully vetted against a set of established criteria to extend “best-in-class” business protection across IT environments.
