Vulnerability management uncovers critical vulnerabilities and supports immediate remediation

 In Press

Nuremberg, September 2018 – The Install.Desk solution from FCS Fair Computer Systems takes over the automatic software distribution in Windows networks and reduces the effort involved in installing new software applications, updates or patches to a minimum. In order to uncover and fix critical security vulnerabilities in the software installed on the clients, FCS Fair Computer Systems has developed the “Vulnerability Management" developed for Install.Desk.

The module identifies vulnerable clients and software, suggests strategies for eliminating these vulnerabilities and offers quick and targeted solutions via the Install.Desk distribution routines. “The new, fully integrated vulnerability management in connection with the proven software distribution guarantees that users are always informed about security gaps and can take immediate action", according to Dr. Jürgen Falk, managing director and responsible for product management at FCS Fair Computer Systems.


Vulnerability management – ​​uncover security gaps

The vulnerability management module helps to identify critical security gaps and eliminate risks using CVSS and CVE-certified recommendations for action. As a basis, the internationally reported vulnerabilities (CVE = Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) and the software affected by them are collected centrally at FCS and regularly compared with the customer installations by Install.Desk via a web service.

Comprehensive software scan
With the help of the newly developed comprehensive software scan of all clients in the network, the software installed on the clients can be checked using intelligent methods. Install.Desk automatically takes over the comparison with the international vulnerability registers and identifies vulnerable clients and endangered software in no time at all.

Fix vulnerabilities quickly
The system suggests strategies and fixes for all vulnerabilities in order to eliminate identified points of attack as conveniently and quickly as possible.
In addition, the vulnerability management helps the administrator to create automatic reaction routines as installable jobs and packages. The installation jobs to fix the vulnerabilities can be executed immediately, as usual, at the next restart or automatically on a time-controlled basis.

Always keep an eye on the safety status
A dashboard shows the most important information about the security status of the Windows clients up-to-date and at a glance. The distribution of the relevant vulnerabilities and the affected clients according to severity, the most vulnerable software in the system and the most vulnerable clients with the largest number of vulnerabilities are shown graphically here.
