Secunia and Microsoft have partnered to offer a consolidated approach to patch management.

The partnership sees Secunia selected as Microsoft's first vulnerability security alliance partner, which will also enable the technology giant to introduce Secunia's products to its global technology centres that will allow users to deploy third-party patches.

According to Secunia, its vulnerability, intelligence and patch management solution, the Secunia Corporate Software Inspector (Secunia CSI 6.0), integrates seamlessly with Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.

Peter Colsted, CEO of Secunia, said: “The Microsoft Technology Center only partners with industry leaders and we are very pleased to be invited to join their alliance program. Secunia is already a member of the Microsoft System Center Alliance program, and we listen carefully to the Microsoft community, the System Center customers and most valuable professionals, when we develop the product features and plug-ins that facilitate integration with Microsoft's offerings.”

Andrew Conway, director of product marketing at Microsoft, said: “With System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, our customers can empower employee productivity on a wide range of devices while maintaining compliance and working to protect company data.

“With Secunia CSI 6.0 and System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, our joint customers can streamline patch management processes and protect both Microsoft and non-Microsoft applications from vulnerabilities.”
