Lumension Named a Leader in Vulnerability Management by Independent Research Firm
Lumension acknowledged for having strongest strategy, vision and broader value proposition as it aims to deliver a consolidated platform to manage the lifecycle of vulnerabilities(PresseBox) (Scottsdale, Ariz., )
Listed among the reasons for citing Lumension as a leader in this report, Lumension was lauded for having "the strongest strategy/vision due to its portfolio of endpoint remediation products, such as [Lumension Patch and Remediation (formerly Patchlink)]. Straddling both assessment and remediation gives customers a onestop shop for vulnerability management capabilities."
Lumension was also highlighted in the report as "the only vendor in this evaluation that has its own endpoint patch management functionality, Lumension Patch and Remediation (formerly PatchLink), and its own GRC product, Lumension Risk Manager. Unlike the other vendors that may have a focus on assessment, Lumension's value proposition is much broader - instead of dealing with separate consoles from assessment, remediation and compliance, Lumension aims to deliver a consolidated platform to manage the lifecycle of vulnerabilities - from discovery to remediation to analytics."
"We believe this report by Forrester validates our vision that taking an integrated, endtoend approach, is the right one. Today, the endpoint is where corporate data is truly housed and it is rampant with growing risk. As more of us use Facebook and download applications through our browser, we have inherently shifted traditional IT risk away from the server and operating systems to that of applications and desktops," said Patrick J. Clawson, Chairman and CEO, Lumension. "As a result, organizations absolutely need greater visibility across configurations and into vulnerabilities, to better understand if and how these threats have been remediated. A platformbased approach like ours that provides a view across all of these areas is critical."
"Given this shift, now more than ever before, IT security and operations teams have a collective eagle eye on vulnerability management within their organization," added C. Edward Brice, SVP worldwide marketing, Lumension. "We're also pleased that remediation and security analytics are fast becoming the newest differentiators, as it's a development we've seen our own customers continue to seek - a consolidated assessment and remediation strategy to address shifting threats and risks across their IT environments."
