In Secunia CSI 6.0, the vulnerability scanner will now cover Red Hat Enterprise Linux in addition to Windows and Mac OS X, and has added the ability to scan for custom software throughout the environment. Updates can be created using the Secunia Package System and existing deployed solutions, the company noted.

SecuniaIn addition, there is a new level of integration with Microsoft Windows Server Update Services, Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, Altiris Deployment Solution and other third-party configuration management tools. The integration will enable easy installation of third-party updates and make patching more straight-forward, the company said.

“The overall mission of the Secunia CSI 6.0 has been to empower our customers and their current infrastructure, while providing them with the best of breed vulnerability intelligence, scanning, and pre-created patch packages,” said Morten R. Stengaard, director of product management and quality assurance at Secunia, in a statement. “We have therefore focused on developing the Secunia CSI’s integration capabilities, making the Secunia CSI 6.0 a much more useful and extensive Vulnerability and Patch Management tool.”

The Secunia CSI provides the reliable, comprehensive, and up-to-date vulnerability intelligence and highly accurate scan results needed by IT-operations and security teams to deal with these vulnerabilities. By combining these two capabilities with automated patch creation and integration, the intelligence becomes actionable in a CM, SIEM, and GRC perspective and more cost effective.

“Simply put, we have designed the new Secunia CSI to help our customers realize a better return on those investments while at the same time improving their security level,” Stengaard said.
