Centennial Unveils Tool

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Centennial Software, developer of IT asset discovery and endpoint security solutions, today announced the availability of Security.Advisor, a comprehensive new solution for detecting and prioritizing network software and firmware vulnerabilities. With Security.Advisor, Centennial sets a new bar for effective governance of the IT estate by combining 100 percent network discovery with vulnerability assessment, ensuring that vulnerability scans are performed on all machines for total network protection.

Vulnerabilities identified by Security.Advisor can take many forms such as greynet applications (unwanted games, P2P applications, hacking tools, etc.) and software and firmware not on the latest patch. By comparing the live information in Centennial Discovery's asset repository against a comprehensive database of known threats, Security.Advisor helps administrators pinpoint risks down to individual PCs and devices.

"Addressing the problem of network vulnerability begins with an accurate and up to date awareness of the hardware and software on your network," said Andy Burton, CEO of Centennial Software. "With Security.Advisor, Centennial Software is helping companies make intelligent security decisions about the massive amount of software on their network by highlighting risky applications. It's about enabling effective governance of the IT estate and security is a key component of that."

Available as an add-on component to Centennial Discovery 2006 Feature Pack
