Device42 Partners with VulnDB, Adds Software Vulnerability Management
Device42, Inc., the market leader in agentless discovery software for Hybrid IT that automatically uncovers your entire IT infrastructure, has partnered with Risk Based Security’s (RBS) VulnDB to add software vulnerability detection to its offering, providing accurate and comprehensive insight into any computing environment.
“The addition of RBS’ deep and broad database to the Device42 data lake fits naturally with our comprehensive discovery functionality, ensuring that when a new vulnerability is announced, customers can quickly find out if they’re affected, and if so, how to remediate,” stated Raj Jalan, Device42’s founder & CEO. “The combination of Device42 and VulnDB significantly shortens the time from vulnerability detection to remediation.”
With Device42’s software licensing management capabilities and VulnDB, IT staff can now easily identify software vulnerabilities across the IT enterprise right from Device42. The integration works alongside Device42’s comprehensive auto-discovery, which compares discovered software titles against the VulnDB database. The integration also adds RBS’ “CVSS” (Common Vulnerability Scoring System) ratings to Device42, which scores discovered software titles based on severity of known vulnerabilities, making prioritization easier, while API-based access to vulnerability data facilitates programmatic access.
