Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) August 8, 2004
PatchAdvisor, Inc. (ÂPAÂ) of Alexandria, VA, has announced that its products are now compatible with MITRE CorporationÂs Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (ÂCVEÂ) dictionary. CVE names are used by information security product/service vendors and researchers as a standard method for identifying vulnerabilities and for cross-linking with other repositories. Each CVE name includes the following: the CVE identifier number (i.e., "CVE-1999-0067"); indication of "entry" or "candidate" status; brief description of the security vulnerability or exposure; and any pertinent references (i.e., vulnerability reports and advisories or OVAL-ID). ÂWe are very enthusiastic about our inclusion in the CVE compatibility programÂ says Jeff Fay, PatchAdvisorÂs CEO. ÂThe ability to standardize the intelligence that we map to our customersÂ assets is a crucial element in defining PatchAdvisorÂs role in the vulnerability and patch management market space.Â
