TruSecure announces early warning system
TruSecure has unveiled a new software product combining software vulnerability detection and remediation using information from its IntelliShield threat and vulnerability intelligence service. TruSecure IntelliShield Early Warning System (EWS) is a threat management system that is intended to simplify network security management by matching up software vulnerability alerts from TruSecure’s IntelliSheild service with affected systems deployed on a network, according to the company. Alerts from IntelliShield are fed to a device at the customer site throughout the day. That device then scans the network for systems affected by the alerts. Administrators decide which computer assets they wish to monitor, then set policies and a priority level for each asset. The system supports major operating systems including Windows, Linux and Unix as well as major software applications such as Oracle and Microsoft SQL databases.
