Secure ElementsÂ’ CLASS 5 EVM Awarded CVE Compatibility Certificate

Secure ElementsÂ’ CLASS 5 EVM Awarded CVE Compatibility Certificate

Compatibility means easier interoperability and enhanced security for enterprise systems.

HERNDON, Va. (PRWEB) April 28, 2005 -

Secure Elements, Inc., a leader in enterprise vulnerability management and remediation, today announced that its CLASS 5 Enterprise Vulnerability Management (C5 EVM) suite has earned Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) certification.

The certificate means that Secure ElementsÂ’ C5 EVM suite is now "CVE-compatible" and uses CVE names in a way that allows it to cross-link with other companies and products that use CVE names, ensuring enhanced interoperability and security for enterprises.

Funded by the Department of Homeland Security and managed by the non-profit MITRE Corporation, CVE is a list of information security vulnerabilities and exposures that provides common names for publicly known problems. This master list of names enables different companies and products to speak the same language when discussing problems, thereby avoiding potential gaps in security coverage and improving overall network security.

"By supporting standard names for vulnerabilities, Secure Elements enables its customers to relay vulnerability information from C5 EVM to the different vulnerability related resources, tools and databases that are available to describe the threat that a particular flaw poses," Robert Martin, MITRE CVE Compatibility Lead.

A Certificate of Compatibility was presented by Jerry Dixon, Deputy Director of the National Cyber Security Division, U. S. Computer Emergency Readiness Team (CERT) at the Department of Homeland Security.

“In earning the CVE certification, Secure Elements is demonstrating its dedication to better network security,” said Ned Miller, chief executive officer of Secure Elements. “Enterprises using C5 EVM now have the ability to share important vulnerability information across, enabling better communication and better overall security.”

Secure ElementsÂ’ C5 EVM suite enables deep asset inventory and control, policy and audit management, active policy enforcement and vulnerability assessment and remediation across all classes of IT assets. With a proven record of compliance assistance for healthcare firms, utilities, financial service firms, colleges/universities, state and federal agencies, Secure ElementsÂ’ C5 EVM suite goes beyond tactical compliance to proactively position customers for future initiatives.

About CVE

Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE) is a dictionary list of standardized names for vulnerabilities and other information security exposures. The goal of the CVE List is to make it easier to share data across separate vulnerability databases and security tools. The content of CVE is a result of a collaborative effort of the CVE Editorial Board, which includes representatives from numerous security-related organizations such as security tool vendors, academic institutions and government, as well as other prominent security experts. The MITRE Corporation maintains the CVE List and moderates Editorial Board discussions. For more information, please see http://cve. mitre. org (http://cve. mitre. org).
