Northbrook, IL (PRWEB) March 27, 2005
Beyond Security (http://www.beyondsecurity.com) announced their Security Assessment Service is now CVE-compatible.
Beyond-IP (http://www.beyond-ip.com), the North American distributor for BeyondSecurity will be promoting CVE-compatibility in the United States.
CVE stands for Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures. CVE is the standard for information security vulnerability names. CVE is a list of standardized names for network security vulnerabilities and other information security exposures. The goal of CVE is to provide a common language for describing computer security vulnerabilities.
"CVE-compatible" means that a product or service uses CVE names in a way that allows it to cross-link with other repositories that also use CVE names. Specific requirements for CVE Compatible products are available at the CVE website: http://cve.mitre.org/compatible/requirements.html
According to Brandon Buhai, COO of Beyond-IP, ÂCVE's common names make it easier to share data across separate network security databases and tools that are CVE-compatible. CVE also provides a baseline for evaluating the coverage of an organization's security tools.
CVE entries are included in the SANS/FBI "Twenty Most Critical Internet Security Vulnerabilities" consensus list, helping system administrators who use CVE-compatible products and services make their networks more secure.
To date, 136 organizations from industry, government, and academia worldwide have declared that 216 network security products or services are or will be CVE-compatible.
ÂCVE compatibility may seem awfully techy to some, but we feel it is important to embrace the evolving standards necessary to better audit networks security vulnerabilities,Â concluded Buhai.
For large organizations concerned about regulatory compliance or dissatisfied with the network security audit services provided by their consulting firms, Beyond-IP provides an Automated Vulnerability Management Appliance that provides a higher quality, lower cost network vulnerability assessment and management than any other alternative. The Automated Vulnerability Management Appliances performs a security mapping of your network and simulates attacks originating from either the internal or the external network. Once the security mapping is complete, the software generates a detailed vulnerability report specifying the security breaches, along with practical solutions to fix those vulnerabilities. Beyond-IP is the US arm of Beyond Security LTD.
