NopSec Adds New Automation Layer to Drive Zero-Friction Vulnerability Remediation

Unified VRM 3.4.7 Helps Organizations Proactively Protect Against Security Breaches by Prioritizing and Remediating Threats Posing the Most Business Risk

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Mar 24, 2015) - NopSec, a provider of vulnerability remediation solutions powered by advanced machine learning technology, today announced the release of version 3.4.7 of its Unified VRM platform. The platform empowers organizations to quickly find the vulnerabilities that present the most risk, focus on top threats, and fix potential exploitations through an integrated remediation workflow.

Based on a flexible, software-as-a-service (SaaS) architecture, NopSec Unified VRM helps security professionals simplify their work, manage vulnerabilities effectively, and make more informed decisions. The intelligent solution dramatically reduces the turnaround time between identification of critical vulnerabilities and remediation.

"Security is a critical concern for companies using cloud software, and as a provider of SaaS solutions, we're particularly conscious of that need," added Timothy Meaney, CEO of Kindling. "With NopSec Unified VRM, we can confidently use its proactive threat remediation as a way to stay on top of our security and our market. We get an advanced look at potential exploits and the associated risks so we can quickly take the necessary corrective action to eliminate those threats -- both to us and our customers."

The newest release of NopSec Unified VRM features several significant automation and user interface enhancements based on the continued innovation of its adaptive artificial intelligence (AI) and predictive analytics engines. Helping security teams keep up with evolving threats and increasing compliance mandates, the NopSec AI Expert Engine filters and prioritizes all of the data from vulnerability scans so security professionals can immediately focus on the most critical, and probable, threats to their own IT environment.

Primary new features and enhancements in Unified VRM 3.4.7 include:

  • Further automating the remediation process - Allowing users to quickly operate on logical groups of tickets, which better reflect workflow, by automating the ticket management process. This additional automation breaks down some of the barriers between IT and security to speed frictionless remediation.
  • Enhancements to the web application scanning process - Web application scanning is now easier to integrate with the software development lifecycle with API-driven web application scanning targeted at integrating with software build infrastructures. This empowers customers to resolve critical issues before web applications move into production. Vulnerabilities are easily identified with visualizations and improved dashboards, saving customers hours of downtime by addressing issues in a staging environment.
  • Expansion of integrations within the security ecosystem - Extending NopSec's technology partner ecosystem, Unified VRM now supports Nexpose Rapid 7 scanner data import, Windows SCCM patch management, and advanced integrations with Service Now.

"It is time for companies to move beyond manually sorting vulnerability scan data or overinvesting in labor-intensive spreadsheet models. NopSec ingests scan data and makes it more useful by cutting through the noise, correlating it with external threats and interpreting the results. Knowing what might happen down the road helps organizations take a more proactive vulnerability risk management approach and avoid costly security breaches," noted NopSec CEO Lisa Xu. "We are committed to automating previously manual, cross-function processes to remove remediation barriers and better translate vocabularies and align priorities among security, DevOps and IT teams."
