Secunia has launched the next version of its Corporate Software Inspector (CSI) 6.0 to combine vulnerability intelligence and scanning, and patch creation with patch deployment.

According to the company, the vulnerability and patch management solution allows users to understand and evaluate their entire threat landscape, identify exactly where application vulnerabilities exist and how best to prioritise and implement remediation efforts.

Also added are custom scan rules and the ability to create and configure smart groups and integration with Microsoft Windows Server Update Services (WSUS), Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) Altiris Deployment Solution and any other third-party configuration management tools.

Morten Stengaard, director of product management and quality assurance at Secunia, said: “Simply put, we have designed the new Secunia CSI to help our customers realise a better return on those investments, while at the same time improving their security level.

“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. 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.”
