Updates include expanded Windows 8, Windows Server 2012 and Juniper OS coverage


nCircle, the leader in information risk and security performance management, today announced that nCircle Suite360™ and nCircle PureCloud™ now discover over 79,000 conditions, including vulnerabilities, configurations, operating systems and over 12,000 applications. nCircle delivers the broadest coverage in the industry and ensures that assets on customers’ networks are accurately identified and assessed for vulnerabilities and audited for compliant configurations.

“The foundation of every security program is the ability to accurately and comprehensively identify the characteristics of all assets on the network because you can’t protect against threats if you don’t know they are there,” said Lamar Bailey, director of security research and development for nCircle. “The threat landscape for both the public and private sector is more complex now than ever before. This, combined with an increase in successful attacks, makes comprehensive vulnerability scanning more critical than ever.”

Since 2011, nCircle has increased total coverage by 56%, adding 67% more vulnerability coverage, 37% more application coverage, 16% more operating system coverage and 55% more configuration policy coverage.

Recent updates include expanded coverage for:

  • Windows 8
  • Windows Server 2012
  • Juniper OS
  • IBM DB2
  • Joomla
  • WordPress
  • Cisco detection via Network Time Protocol (NTP)

nCircle continues to invest heavily in security research and development, setting industry standards in comprehensive asset discovery, accuracy and vulnerability detection. nCircle’s Vulnerability and Exposure Research Team (VERT) researches vulnerabilities as they emerge, creating unique, non-intrusive signatures that minimize false positives. These updates are continuously published to nCircle IP360 and nCircle PureCloud.
