Norway, Oslo, 27 April, 2010 — Norman ASA today announced the launch of Norman Patch and Remediation Advanced (NPRA). This solution enables enterprises to effectively manage the entire vulnerability lifecycle utilizing automated vulnerability assessment, patch management and remediation. It includes Norman Content Wizard, a powerful tool that automates tedious and time-consuming system and desktop management tasks to optimize the IT environment.
Considering that most of cyber attacks exploit known security flaws for which remediation is available, effective vulnerability and patch management should be on every company’s to-do list. Organizations are facing greater pressures to optimize IT efficiencies wherever possible and the need for an automated and streamlined vulnerability management solution to simplify and expedite the process are essential.
This creates an enormous challenge for enterprises in light of an increasing number of remote employees who reduce the organization’s visibility into the network and control over the devices that are brought in and out of the environment. Many IT organizations must now support heterogeneous environments with increasingly diverse operating systems beyond simply Windows, as Linux, Mac and many more.
Countless software applications, including business productivity tools, web browsers, P2P and physical and virtual machines within the network need to be updated. Numerous endpoint configurations that have drifted out of compliance with regulatory or corporate policies as well as industry best practices must be controlled and configured after the corporate security policy.
By streamlining and automating vulnerability management processes, organizations can effectively address operating systems and applications from multiple vendors keeping a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
Norman Patch and Remediation Advanced delivers automated vulnerability assessment and patch management through an integrated solution that enables businesses to automatically detect risks, deploy patches and defend their business information across a complex, highly-distributed environment with greater efficiency and minimal impact to productivity. All of these activities are seamlessly integrated into a single management console for complete visibility into your network.
This new patch management solution includes Norman Content Wizard and extends the capabilities of Norman Patch and Remediation to cost-effectively streamline desktop and system management tasks with simple and customizable wizard-based policy creation, distribution and baseline enforcement. This powerful patch management enables organizations to dynamically meet the needs of their diverse IT environments.
“Today, more than ever, organizations need a way to customize and streamline their patch management processes, as vulnerabilities are on the increase and exploits are spreading faster than ever. Norman Patch and Remediation Advanced helps organizations take a proactive, automated approach to streamline and automate vulnerability management processes, ensuring their systems are secure, available and compliant with corporate standards. ” said Audun Lødemel, VP marketing and business development.
