Program vulnerabilities represent an increasing threat to companies' IT-security, as all it takes is one vulnerability for a cyber criminal to gain access to the internal network, allowing other security measures to be circumvented.

Due to the cumbersome scope of patching and the lack of network visibility so far, companies have often overlooked third party programs in their patching operations, while Microsoft programs have been automatically managed by WSUS or SCCM.

To solve this problem and aid companies deal with vulnerability threats, the Secunia CSI 4.0 integrates directly with Microsoft WSUS and SCCM for simplified patch management, facilitating the distribution of the latest security updates for all programs, Microsoft and third party. - Sapa
