It’s no secret cyber criminals are busy developing bigger and better hacking tools to help themselves to your data
Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 25, 2011
Vulnerabilities and exploits are on the rise. To protect growing businesses from the cybercriminals focused on confiscating organization’s data and otherwise disrupting business, Lumension®, the global leader in endpoint management and security has partnered with Intel® AppUp Small Business Service. Intel’s new Hybrid Cloud servers, a subscription-based model for providing small businesses software on a pay-as-you-go basis, which run on locally-hosted Intel-based servers, will now deliver Lumension® Patch and Remediation via the Lumension® Endpoint Point Management Security Suite, L.E.M.S.S.
Microsoft operating systems and applications are not the only concern to organizations – other applications have four times more vulnerabilities than Microsoft and currently lead the path in cybercriminals’ attack vector of choice.
“It’s no secret cyber criminals are busy developing bigger and better hacking tools to help themselves to your data,” said Rich Hlavka, senior vice president, business development, Lumension. “Ongoing patching for all vulnerabilities is still an organization’s best first line of defense against potential attacks.”
However, with so many vulnerabilities to patch and seemingly countless IT assets to manage, it is increasingly difficult for a growing business to keep up. Lumension Patch and Remediation delivered through L.E.M.S.S. automatically identifies and patches vulnerabilities across heterogeneous operating systems, configurations and all major third party applications. The single console allows IT seamless management of the patching process while at the same time enables small business customers of the Intel AppUp Small Business Service to improve their endpoint security.
“The Intel AppUp Small Business Service is an opportunity for companies like Lumension to provide small businesses with needed security-enhancing tools that have cloud-like flexibility at a competitive price,” said Bridget Karlin, General Manager, Intel Hybrid Cloud.
