NextiraOne and Critical Watch Partner
HOUSTON and DALLAS - NextiraOne entered a new relationship with Critical Watch, a provider of Enterprise Vulnerability Management Solutions. NextiraOne will use Critical Watch's FusionVM System to power its converged communications Managed Vulnerability Assessment Service.
NextiraOne chose the Critical Watch solution because it can operate without the requirement of an appliance that sits inside customers' networks. This alliance allows NextiraOne to offer a suite of security vulnerability assessment and management services, without placing a device on their customers' networks. Because this will be part of NextiraOne's information security managed and professional services offerings, customers enjoy the benefits of the FusionVM solution in combination with NextiraOne's other security services.
The FusionVM solution automates the vulnerability management lifecycle to enable a preventive security process. The service will offer recurring vulnerability scanning with Web-based reports and remediation solutions. This will enable NextiraOne clients to manage threats to systems and applications that drive services such as voice messaging, conferencing, instant messaging, unified messaging and collaboration. The engine also will provide an early warning service - if a threat is identified in the market, customers of the impacted platform will be alerted and offered solutions to mitigate the issue.
