  • SecOps principles to close gaps in Vulnerability Management
    SecOps principles to close gaps in Vulnerability Management
    John Pescatore, SANS Director of Emerging Security Trends, Ken Hilker and Marcelo Pereira, Flexera Software Recorded: Jun 14 2017 59 mins
    Organizations report that remediation is a constant point of failure in vulnerability management activities. SecOps initiatives should help close this gap and enable effective reduction of attack surface for cybercriminals and hackers. There are plenty of challenges to succeed in such efforts though.

    In this webinar, John Pescatore will discuss SecOps challenges, when it comes to managing vulnerabilities on software and Flexera Software will introduce its new SecOps platform, Software Vulnerability Manager.
  • Prevention is futile: A story that will make you WannaCry…
    Prevention is futile: A story that will make you WannaCry…
    Marcelo Pereira, Product Marketing Manager at Flexera Software Recorded: May 30 2017 46 mins
    The WannaCry ransomware attacks a great example how neglecting security patches can have a catastrophic impact for businesses.
    While many discuss whether their anti-virus could have stopped the attack, the plain facts are:
    -This attack uses a vulnerability on a component of Windows and Windows Server that was patched by Microsoft two months ago
    -The vulnerability was part of the recent NSA leak, a highly publicized scandal, and not an obscure vulnerability that no one had heard of before
    -Applying the patch would prevent any successful attack
    Join us for a discussion on the challenges of patch management and how to improve patching processes to avoid falling victim of attacks like WannaCry.

    All about the thousands of 2016 vulnerabilities. From Secunia Research.
    Kasper Lindgaard, Director of Secunia Research at Flexera Software Recorded: Mar 15 2017 41 mins
    Every year, Secunia Research at Flexera Software releases a review of the global vulnerability landscape, based on their large vulnerability database and data from the Personal Software Inspector user base.

    The data in this research provides security professionals around the world with perspective on the impact and evolution of the threat landscape and what has trended throughout the year.

    In this webinar, Director of Secunia Research at Flexera Software, Kasper Lindgaard will discuss the data presented in the Vulnerability Review 2017 and answer questions.
  • 2017 Software Vulnerability Management Resolutions
    2017 Software Vulnerability Management Resolutions
    Marcelo Pereira, Product Marketing Manager at Flexera Software Recorded: Feb 8 2017 33 mins
    As we enter 2017, there is one certainty we all can have: we will continue to see costly breaches driven by the exploitation of well-known vulnerabilities. In this webinar, Marcelo Pereira will talk about the challenges that stop organizations implementing effective best practices for vulnerability and patch management and suggest New Year’s resolutions related to Software Vulnerability Management that can help prioritize activities to effectively keep hackers away from your systems.
  • Patching Clients and Servers using Configuration Manager Current Branch
    Patching Clients and Servers using Configuration Manager Current Branch
    Kent Agerlund, Microsoft MVP, Coretech Recorded: Jan 19 2017 63 mins
    Dealing with server management is often very different from managing client devices in the enterprise. In this session we will demonstrate some of the tools and solutions we use to successfully manage servers in the enterprise. We will also discuss how you can integrate Flexera Software's Corporate Software Inspector into your enterprise client management strategy.
  • Carry an Umbrella and It Won’t Rain – Patching to Protect against the Bad Things
    Carry an Umbrella and It Won’t Rain – Patching to Protect against the Bad Things
    Rob Ayoub, IDC Research Director Recorded: Dec 13 2016 50 mins
    Organizations struggle to prioritize and implement the vast number of patches being introduced by software vendors. Testing and implementing takes time and most organizations simply apply a blanket set of patches for well-known software. However, attacks like ransomware are multi-vector and target a wide range of vulnerable software. While many of these vulnerabilities have patches, most organizations are not applying the most critical patches across their infrastructure, leaving them open to these very effective attacks.
    In this webinar, IDC Research Director Rob Ayoub and Flexera Software will discuss the need for a more targeted approach to patching – an approach that considers the exploitability of vulnerabilities and other factors beyond a CVE score.

    2017 Vulnerability Trends - What To Look Out For
    Kasper Lindgaard, Director of Secunia Research at Flexera Software Recorded: Dec 7 2016 37 mins
    Year after year some of the trends for vulnerabilities remain unchanged while others arise or shift. In this webinar, Kasper Lindgaard, Director of Secunia Research at Flexera Software will discuss some of the most relevant topics in the year so far, as observed by his team of vulnerability research experts. Take-aways from this session:

    - Vulnerabilities on niche software are also making headlines
    - The ever growing risk of embedded applications
    - Why you should not neglect less common applications
  • Activate The Full Potential Of Your Vulnerability Management Program
    Activate The Full Potential Of Your Vulnerability Management Program
    Kelley Mak, Analyst, Forrester Research and Marcelo Pereira, Product Marketing Manager, Flexera Software Recorded: Jun 14 2016 49 mins
    Vulnerability management is a necessary instrument for threat and risk reduction in enterprise environments. Yet, many organizations struggle to put a program in place that provides value to the enterprise beyond baseline compliance requirements. This is often due to challenges in three key areas of vulnerability management: discovery, prioritization, and remediation.

    In this webinar, guest speaker, Forrester Research’s Kelley Mak, will provide insight on how enterprises can activate the full potential of their vulnerability management programs. Together with Flexera Software’s Marcelo Pereira, he will discuss how to combine principles of vulnerability management to other areas of operations management to efficiently improve security baseline.
  • "A New Perspective on Patch Management" with the SANS Institute
    "A New Perspective on Patch Management" with the SANS Institute
    John Pescatore, Director of Emerging Security Trends at SANS, Dylan Hudak and Marcelo Pereira from Flexera Software Recorded: May 24 2016 59 mins
    Despite the awareness that patching plays an important role in every organizations security, we continue to see incidents in which software vulnerabilities are a root cause, or enabler of security breaches. We believe that a different perspective to patch management is the key to prioritize patching, reducing work load and improving the security baseline for organizations.

    This webinar is for those in charge of scoping, supporting and executing patch management strategies. We talk about patch management in the context of security and will show how our solution, Corporate Software Inspector, can help organizations extend the scope of their Microsoft System Center implementation to prioritize patching of non-Microsoft applications.
  • Reduce Risk by Leveraging Data across IT Silos
    Reduce Risk by Leveraging Data across IT Silos
    John Emmitt and Marcelo Pereira Recorded: May 11 2016 40 mins
    One of the biggest challenges organizations face when trying to reduce the attack surface for cybercriminals and hackers is the lack of visibility and control over their IT environments, devices and applications. The ever growing number of software vulnerabilities makes it even more critical to leverage data from Software Asset Management (SAM) programs to help reduce security risk.

    In this webinar, you will hear how to leverage existing SAM data sources such as discovery and inventory data, unlicensed and unauthorized software, along with vulnerability intelligence data, to drive mitigation of security risk through effective reduction of the attack surface.
