Forrester Wave Report Names Lumension a Leader in Vulnerability Management

Lumension, the global leader in endpoint management and security, today announced that the company was among the select companies that Forrester Research, Inc. invited to participate in its July 2010, Forrester Wave report, “The Forrester Wave™: Vulnerability Management, Q2 2010.” Cited as a leader in this evaluation, Lumension was recognized for its end-to-end vision, unique product portfolio and broader value proposition.

Listed among the reasons for citing Lumension as a leader in this report, Lumension was lauded for having “the strongest strategy/vision due to its portfolio of endpoint remediation products, such as Lumension® Patch and Remediation (formerly Patchlink). Straddling both assessment and remediation gives customers a one-stop shop for vulnerability management capabilities.”

Lumension was also highlighted in the report as “the only vendor in this evaluation that has its own endpoint patch management functionality, Lumension® Patch and Remediation (formerly Patchlink), and its own GRC product, Lumension® Risk Manager. Unlike the other vendors that may have a focus on assessment, Lumension’s value proposition is much broader – instead of dealing with separate consoles from assessment, remediation and compliance, Lumension aims to deliver a consolidated platform to manage the lifecycle of vulnerabilities – from discovery to remediation to analytics.”

“We believe this report by Forrester validates our vision that taking an integrated, end-to-end approach, is the right one. Today, the endpoint is where corporate data is truly housed and it is rampant with growing risk. As more of us use Facebook and download applications through our browser, we have inherently shifted traditional IT risk away from the server and operating systems to that of applications and desktops,” said Patrick J. Clawson, chairman and CEO, Lumension. “As a result, organizations absolutely need greater visibility across configurations and into vulnerabilities, to better understand if and how these threats have been remediated. A platform-based approach like ours that provides a view across all of these areas is critical.”

“Given this shift, now more than ever before, IT security and operations teams have a collective eagle eye on vulnerability management within their organization,” added C. Edward Brice, senior vice president worldwide marketing, Lumension. “We’re also pleased that remediation and security analytics are fast becoming the newest differentiators, as it’s a development we’ve seen our own customers continue to seek – a consolidated assessment and remediation strategy to address shifting threats and risks across their IT environments.”
