|Partnership provides enhanced vulnerability intelligence|
Secunia a provider of IT security solutions that enable businesses and private individuals to manage and control vulnerability threats, partnered with the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center, the industry forum for sharing critical information concerning security threats facing the financial services industry.
The collaboration between Secunia and FS-ISAC provides the financial services sector with access to the world's leading vulnerability intelligence and allows members to benefit from the reliable, comprehensive, and accurate threat alerts from Secunia's Research Team.
The FS-ISAC is the only industry forum for collaboration on critical security threats facing the financial services sector in the United States and abroad. Its mission is to enhance the ability of the sector to prepare for and respond to cyber and physical threats, vulnerabilities and incidents, and to serve as the primary communications channel for the sector.
"When attacks occur, early warning and expert advice through collaboration can mean the difference between business continuity and widespread business catastrophe," says Eric Guerrino, executive vice president, FS-ISAC. "Our members rely on receiving timely notification and authoritative information specifically designed to help them protect critical systems and assets from physical and cyber security threats. The timely and authoritative information on vulnerabilities is what we know Secunia is uniquely qualified to provide, and that is why we have chosen Secunia to be our source for the vulnerability intelligence our members need."
Secunia will provide FS-ISAC, and its more than 4,000 members, with vulnerability intelligence to tighten IT infrastructure security, ensure business continuity, and minimize business damage. The alerts on emerging new threats support organizations in handling the growing vulnerability threat: the intelligence provides them with the necessary insights into current threat levels and remediation, and is an important aspect of risk management and in assisting financial organizations to meet compliance requirements.
The agreement between Secunia and FS-ISAC also gives members of FS-ISAC advantageous terms on subscriptions to the Secunia Vulnerability Intelligence Manager solution (VIM) with its database consisting of more than 42,000 products, remediation suggestions, in-depth technical analysis and compliancy policy configuration.
