Affiliation for Improved Vulnerability Management

Core Security Technologies : 04 March, 2010  (Company News)
Core Impact and nCircle integrated to form an alliance comprising security penetration testing with compliance management
Core Security Technologies, provider of the Core Impact family of comprehensive enterprise security testing solutions has expanded its relationship with security and compliance auditing leader nCircle, broadening integration between the two companies' highly complementary security assessment solutions.


By making use of fully-supported integration between Core Impact Pro, an automated penetration testing software solution, and the nCircle IP360 network vulnerability management system, commercial organizations can streamline their vulnerability management processes to more quickly and cost effectively validate critical vulnerabilities that are immediately exploitable on their networks.

For government agencies and commercial businesses that support such organizations, use of the two products in concert allows for compliance with specific controls within 18 of the 20 Requirements laid out in the recently introduced Consensus Audit Guidelines (CAG), including the ability to fully meet many of the security mandates.

Developed by a consortium of public and private security leaders and first published by training specialists SANS Institute in Feb. 2009, CAG Requirements specifically cite the need for cyber-security controls that are tacitly proactive and can "inform defense" of actual attacks that have compromised systems, or those that could transpire to do so.

By feeding the results of vulnerability assessments run using nCircle IP360 directly into Impact Pro, IT security teams within government agencies and commercial organizations can pinpoint the exploitability and severity of vulnerabilities in direct relation to real-world malware and hacking techniques to understand precisely which results represent their more significant points of risk.

The combination of vulnerability scanning and automated penetration testing is recognized among IT security practitioners as a best practice for finding and assessing networking systems flaws and configuration errors. Through this process, organizations can improve their overall vulnerability management processes and dramatically reduce the cost of remediation, while reducing the risk of potential attacks and related loss of sensitive electronic data.

"We're proud to announce that we've reinforced this strategic relationship between two of the most respected products on the vulnerability assessment and penetration testing landscape today," said Mark Hatton, CEO of Core Security. "Organizations continue to rapidly advance their security testing and measurement initiatives, and direct integration between these complementary solutions will help government customers and commercial organizations better understand their exposure to attacks and data theft, in an a highly productive fashion."

"We are pleased to work with market leader, Core Security to deliver even more complete coverage of the Consensus Audit Guidelines," said Karl Hutter, SVP Corporate Development, nCircle. "This is a comprehensive and proactive set of guidelines that can make both government and commercial organizations more effective."
