SecOps – Why you need ITogether Vulnerability Early Warning Powered by Flexera

It is quite common that policies are not aligned with business needs, that processes are not integrated and that technologies are not implemented to their full capabilities. The result of the misalignment is that, despite security investments, we continue to see organisations being breached and suffering significant losses as a consequence of the exploitation of known software vulnerabilities. This can happen months or even years after the vulnerabilty is published.

ITogether has a a SecOp solution to address this challenge head-on.  Protecting companies and their networks around the world.

Vulnerabilities are flagged within hours (closing the critical time window between vulnerability exposure and patch) and more importantly prioritising those vulnerabilities and providing a dashboard of those vulnerabilities in one place for the customer or MSP to quickly react to.

At ITogether we run large scale managed services for our customers around the clock and around the world. We have a duty of care to provide upto the minute information about risk posture. Using our partnership with Flexera we have designed a service that does this for ourselves and also our Enterprise customers. It does the heavy lifting, so we and our customers don’t have to waste resources and time doing it.

We looked at the market, including Trustar, Surf Watch Labs, Looking Glass Cyber, Cygliant and all on paper looked suitable. In the end the one that ‘just works out of the box within minutes’ is Flexera Software Vulnerability Manager.

ITogether provides Flexera SVM (Software Vulnerability Management) as an additional service to all customers. A secure portal is provided for customers to login to and set their ‘vendors and products’ of interest to monitor. Two factor authentication is used to gain access to the portal. Alerts come in the form of email and SMS text. ITogether provide private SMS txt messages to all customers now for alerting purposes as well as email alerting. If you would like to know the costs for Flexera it is very much a ‘must have’ service and costs are incredibly reasonable. The cost is an annual subscription and based on the number of administrators that want to receive alerts. Flexera Software Vulnerability Management provides details on over 10,400 vendors and over 46,500 products going back historically to 2002.
