But even the most advanced technology depends on intelligence. It’s how informed you are about the latest threats that will determine how secure your network really is.
That’s particularly true of application vulnerabilities. They’re risks that are embedded in your most trusted software. And they’re incredibly easy to miss.
So intelligence is everything. And Flexera provides customers with world-leading threat intelligence whenever a new vulnerability is suspected. Here’s how.
Flexera’s dedicated threat research team is always watching for signs of a potential vulnerability. Alerts come from various sources, including public repositories, industry experts, and hands-on testing of major applications whenever new updates are released.
What’s more, Flexera’s established position as an authority in third-party application vulnerabilities means that whenever vulnerabilities are suspected, they are often reported directly to Flexera’s team.
The Secunia threat research team takes an unbiased and balanced approach to vulnerabilities that are reported, but fundamentally begins from a position of suspicion. Until vulnerabilities are assessed, every report is treated is accurate and urgent.
Then, the report and the application itself are examined by Flexera’s experienced team – leading security specialists who have been involved in uncovering major vulnerabilities in some of the world’s most popular applications.
Based on this assessment, the vulnerability is either verified or rejected.
Once a vulnerability is verified, a detailed advisory is written. This is the summary of the issue, and the key way in which Flexera passes its accurate threat intelligence out to administrators and customers.
Every advisory issued by Flexera includes a detailed description, which contains information on:
This becomes a single source of complete threat intelligence.
Flexera’s reputation is built on the best application vulnerability intelligence. What makes Flexera different is its verified vulnerability intelligence – something you can depend on. This intelligence is then subjected to multi-layered quality assurance that every advisory must pass through before it is published.
Flexera checks that advisories provide accurate, reliable, actionable intelligence. That every advisory is consistently presented, regardless of the vendor and application involved. And that every advisory is easy to understand, regardless of technical experience or existing insight.
It’s through that consistency that Flexera provides such a high standard of intelligence. Verified vulnerability intelligence, delivered in a timely fashion, with practical information presented clearly.
