NEW YORK, Dec. 8, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, the successful New York City IT security consultancy, NopSec, Inc., announced the launch of its branded Vulnerability Risk Management Solution - VRM - that enables enterprises to effectively manage IT security risk levels related to network vulnerabilities. VRM is a streamlined and sophisticated SaaS solution that identifies and verifies vulnerabilities and then generates remediation reports; it will be offered on an annual subscription basis by the beginning of December 2010. Users will no longer have to wade through the ocean of noise and false positives inherent in other related solutions, thus freeing resources for more important priorities in meeting ever-increasing IT security risks.
The CSO of an international banking institution and NopSec's current customer shared his positive experience with VRM: "We don't have the staff or financial resources to dig through the noise and the false positives that certain vendors are currently delivering - we are spending 80% more time resolving false positives than actually scanning our networks. With the increased and on-going threat to our customer data, I am now able to confidently report the levels of risk we face to executive management, and the progress we are making on remediation initiatives."
For small and medium sized organizations with regulation burdens, VRM gives users control over the process to identify vulnerabilities, virtually eliminating false positives; the ability to maintain control over network security and regulatory compliance with centralized reports, verified and custom-fit remedies; and full remediation capabilities with trouble ticketing. The subscription provides unlimited assessments of a predefined number of IP addresses and enables customers to gain access to daily vulnerability signature updates.
"We have been hearing complaints from our customers about existing vulnerability assessment products and services," said Michelangelo Sidagni, CTO and co-founder at NopSec, "so we decided to build a new, best of breed SaaS solution. Our focus is to help our customers streamline and speed up the vulnerability identification, verification and remediation process. This is just the first of many risk assessment modules."
NopSec VRM features will also allow customers to receive automatic centralized reporting, daily updates to the latest vulnerability signatures, accurate vulnerability reporting free of false positives, and many more.
