Agiliance Integrates VeriSign iDefense Intelligence to Deliver Comprehensive Threat and Vulnerability Solution

SAN JOSE, CA--(Marketwire - February 23, 2010) - Agiliance Inc., the leading independent provider of integrated Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced its threat and vulnerability automation solution is integrated with iDefense Security Intelligence Services, a leading vulnerability intelligence solution from VeriSign Inc., the trusted provider of Internet infrastructure services for the networked world. Agiliance Threat and Vulnerability Manager's out-of-the-box integration with VeriSign iDefense Security Intelligence Services provides extensive threat and vulnerability protection by combining in-depth security threat intelligence, vulnerability scanning data, real-time correlation, advanced reporting, and vulnerability lifecycle management.

Agiliance Threat and Vulnerability Manager offers an integrated platform where a security operations group can integrate various threat and vulnerability data sources to create an all-inclusive security picture for the enterprise and manage the full lifecycle of vulnerabilities from detection to remediation. Agiliance's correlation engine cross-maps data feeds from iDefense and the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) to create a comprehensive threat and vulnerability database. This threat and vulnerability database correlates with data from asset database to create a comprehensive virtual scan and identify vulnerable assets, including installed applications. These virtual scan results are further correlated to vulnerability scanners, configuration checkers, and patch management systems to provide a 360-degree view of an enterprise's vulnerability posture. This integrated solution enables CIO's and CISO's to build an enterprise-wide threat and vulnerability program and maximize investment from existing and future security technologies.

Leveraged by an extensive, worldwide intelligence gathering network, proven methodology and highly skilled security professionals, VeriSign iDefense security intelligence services deliver deep analysis and actionable intelligence related to vulnerabilities, malicious code and geopolitical threats to protect critical infrastructure from attacks. "We are very excited about Agiliance's automation solution for iDefense intelligence," said Mike Denning, vice president of enterprise security at VeriSign. "Agiliance's technology allows customers to easily integrate iDefense intelligence into their security operations, enabling customers to achieve a higher level of protection and operational efficiency. This integrated solution will help iDefense and Agiliance joint customers extract maximum value from their security investments."

Agiliance Threat and Vulnerability Manager enables closed-loop vulnerability lifecycle management, including tracking, remediation, review, analysis and reporting. Vulnerabilities are scored and ranked automatically based on criticality of affected asset and business impact. Using Threat and Vulnerability Manager, security operations team can review, prioritize, and prescribe appropriate mitigation actions using Agiliance's highly configurable workflow engine. The Agiliance solution can further fully automated the patching process through bi-directional integrations with patching and ticketing applications.

"Enterprises are facing unprecedented level of threats today which are increasing in volume and sophistication. Attacks are more intelligent about exploring gaps in enterprise security silos. An integrated threat and vulnerability management program is a proactive defense against these sophisticated attacks. A robust program must be supported with cutting edge technologies offering real-time integration and end-to-end automation," said Joe Fantuzzi, President and CEO, Agiliance. "This new solution with VeriSign iDefense is a prime example of a complete end-to-end threat and vulnerability technology platform.
