WMUG Event – Satisnet/Secunia – 10th April 2013 – Virtual

WMUG is proud to announce a virtual meeting with Satisnet/Secunia, presented by John McCann and Morten Stengaard and hosted by Raphael Perez

Overview: 
Secunia CSI provides highly detailed software inventory including both programs and plug-ins. This inventory is in turn mapped to security intelligence related to the individual programs and plug-ins as well as details about vendor supplied security updates. The software can then automatically repackage these patches and push them to SCCM, allowing you to control, manage, and monitor the deployment using SCCM. The Secunia CSI can further conduct scans of desktop and server systems to ensure that the updates are applied correctly and that all systems are fully compliant. 
- Secunia have the largest 3rd party application coverage of all patching vendors as they leverage their award winning security research team, 300 applications covered 
- Secunia will add any specific vendor applications if required, starting by their research team monitoring said app for any vulnerabilities and in parallel creating a signature to detect the application within an SLA of 2 working days 
- They utilise the software Inventory Agent within SCCM to asset scan, so uses existing infrastructure 
- Results are fed direct into SCCM console, so are presented in your existing SCCM GUI, no retraining required
