It combines Vulnerability Intelligence, Threat Intelligence, Vulnerability Scanning, and Patch Creation with Patch Deployment Tool Integration to enable targeted, reliable, and cost-efficient Patch Management.

Vulnerability and Patch Management are critical components of any security infrastructure because they enable proactive detection and remediation of vulnerabilities before they are actively exploited and your security compromised. With Software Vulnerability Manager 2019, IT Operations and Security Teams are empowered to prevent vulnerability threats from both Microsoft and non-Microsoft (third-party) product vulnerabilities, covering Microsoft Windows, Mac OS, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

Software Vulnerability Manager 2019 integrates seamlessly with Microsoft® WSUS and System Center Configuration Manager.

Note • To see the following new features and enhancements in your Software Vulnerability Manager 2019 interface, you must refresh your browser’s cache.

Threat Intelligence Module

Flexera now introduces a third element of prioritization—threat intelligence—based on real-life exploitation of vulnerabilities. Industry assessments, including reports from Gartner, show that between 6%-10% of the vulnerabilities disclosed each year actually are exploited by bad actors in the wild. Most of these have medium CVSS scores, which typically results in their being overlooked by organizations. With this new module, one can better focus their time and resources by deprioritizing efforts to patch vulnerabilities that do not have evidence of exploitation.

To enable this optional module, please contact your Flexera sales representative. For more information, see the Threat Intelligence Module Data Sheet (CSIL-9067).

64-Bit Agent for Mac OSX

64-bit Mac OSX agents are now available from the Download Local Agent page (CSIL-9138).
