(businesspress24) - Greenbone, a provider of vulnerability management solutions for IT networks, has announced the availability of a purpose-built scan-profile, allowing users of Greenbone''s products to scan for the vulnerabilities included in Microsoft''s Patch Tuesday. Using the profile, users can rule out potential risks in the course of the update, like manual errors or omitted systems.

Every second Tuesday of each month, Microsoft regularly releases security patches for its software products. This year''s February patch contains 25 vulnerabilities that relate to over 50 Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVEs)

In response to this, Greenbone now offers a special scan profile for users of its Greenbone Security Manager, the Greenbone Community Edition or openVAS. This allows users to quickly check their infrastructure for newly identified vulnerabilities, while mitigating potential risks such as manual errors during the update and forgotten systems in the automatic update process. Users can request the scan profiles for free via e-mail.

"The risks IT networks are facing are ever growing. Thankfully, Microsoft provides users and administrators with fixes to enhance the security of their IT infrastructure, but for the patch to be thoroughly successful, we have developed a special scan profile that can be applied with our technology. In addition to our automated daily security feed that encompasses tests for more than 58,600 vulnerabilities, this scan works where it is most needed", says Dirk Schrader, Chief Marketing Officer at Greenbone.

Requests for the free MS February Patch Tuesday scan profile for Greenbone Security Manager, Greenbone Community Edition and OpenVAS can be made via patchtuesday(at)greenbone.net.
