Download OESIS Endpoint Assessment Tool
The Vulnerability Assessment Module enables OESIS partner solutions to provide a very quick vulnerability assessment of the most commonly targeted applications by comparing the installed version against the latest available version of an application and reporting on known application vulnerabilities, together with their severity level (critical, important, moderate, low & unknown). For out-of-date applications, the Vulnerability Assessment Module also provides the ability for end users of OESIS partner solutions to initiate an update to the latest version and make endpoint devices more secure.
The Vulnerability Assessment Module offers high-performance detection, and vulnerability accuracy by correlating community sources with our OESIS endpoint data supporting hundreds of applications including both Microsoft and Non-Microsoft applications such as Java, Adobe, browsers and other commonly known vulnerable software.
Extensive Support for Highly Targeted Applications
The Vulnerability Assessment Module concentrates on applications like Browsers, Java, Operating Systems, document applications, and Adobe software that are top targets for attacks. According to recent studies, attacks on these applications contribute to the majority of attacks. Beyond these applications, common third party applications on Windows and many Antivirus applications are supported. OESIS can detect the installed versions and report whether all critical applications are running at the latest version.
Fast Response for Low Latency Applications
Solutions like NAC and VPN need to make quick decisions on whether an endpoint can be allowed into the network. Many vulnerability assessment solutions in the market take tens of minutes to scan an endpoint to determine vulnerability. OESIS Framework makes quick vulnerability assessments by comparing the installed and the latest available versions of applications on an endpoint.
Common Targeted Application Version Assessment Support
Recent studies have shown that keeping applications up to date on all machines across the entire organizational network can dramatically reduce exposure to security threats. OESIS gathers information about the latest available versions for endpoint applications by connecting to external feeds. Any mismatch between the installed and latest available versions is reported. Solutions using the Vulnerability Assessment Module can strengthen the security of endpoints by confirming all critical components are running at the latest version.
OESIS Framework implements several other vulnerability assessment mechanisms. OESIS enables customer solutions to configure, manage and remove Potentially Unwanted Applications. There are many types of applications that can be classified as potentially unwanted, and some of these may make an endpoint device vulnerable. The ability to classify, detect, and remove (supported by the Removal module of OESIS) these unwanted applications can make an end device more secure. OESIS can also be used to update Antivirus products to the latest malware definition, thus reducing the vulnerability.
