BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Core Security®, a leading provider of attack intelligence solutions, has received an Information Security Magazine and SearchSecurity.com Readers’ Choice Award, coming out on top in this year’s “Best Vulnerability Management Products” category.
Award winners in each category were selected based on an extensive, in-depth survey of readers. TechTarget’s Information Security magazine and SearchSecurity.com asked more than 1,700 information security executives and managers to assess and rate the products deployed within their organizations, and editors used these scores to determine award winners for the industry's best security products.
“Our readers loved virtually everything about Core Insight, noting its ability to effectively and accurately identify vulnerabilities,” editors noted. “The product's integration with threat management, remediation capabilities and workflow received high marks. Voters also praised its ease of installation, configuration and administration.”
Core Insight solves the most significant problem plaguing today’s enterprise vulnerability management teams: data overload.
"A periodic scan of a 100,000-node network often yields from one million to as many as 10 million findings, including everything from critical issues to minor informational data points," says Anton Chuvakin, research vice president with Gartner Inc. "Enterprises are having a hard time prioritizing which vulnerabilities to remediate because the tools don't provide enough data or flexibility for prioritization."
To address this issue, Core Insight consolidates vulnerabilities from across the network and prioritizes them based on the threat each poses to critical business assets. This prioritized list gives security teams a clear plan of action, ensuring the most critical vulnerabilities are identified and addressed immediately, and no time is wasted on false positives.
“Customer success has always been our first priority,” explained Mark Hatton, president and CEO of Core Security. “That’s why we’re so honored by this recognition. The Readers’ Choice Award affirms that our innovative products and services are truly enabling customers to meet their security goals. We’re extremely grateful to Information Security and SearchSecurity.com for recognizing our contribution to vulnerability management, and to all of the end users for sharing their experiences.”
