Vulnerability Management Made Easy

KARLSKRONA, Sweden – August 5, 2010 – Outpost24, The Technology Leader in Vulnerability Assessment and Management, today announced that the Faculty of Electrical Engineering of the University of West Bohemia (ZCU) has signed an educational license for Outpost24's OUTSCAN solution in an effort to show students how to establish a vulnerability management program.

Since most companies today rely so heavily on IT, it's important to take the necessary steps in managing and reducing risk exposure to protect valuable assets. Students learning about vulnerability management today will have an advantage when entering the job market. OUTSCAN is an on-demand solution for perimeter vulnerability assessment and management that scans the network perimeter consisting of the same Internet-facing devices that hackers target. It's ease-of-use combined with rich functionality and a powerful vulnerability scanning engine make it a unique solution and a great educational tool.

Students using OUTSCAN will learn how to develop a vulnerability management program by establishing roles, responsibilities and goals, discovering and managing assets on a network, analyzing reports and reviewing descriptions and recommendations to make decisions about what to fix. The students will also benefit from OUTSCAN's trending features which show statistics about vulnerabilities in the network on what is changing and how things are improving over time.

Aart Strang, Sales Office Manager for Outpost24 Czech Republic, was quoted as saying:

“Outpost24 is very happy to announce the signing by ZCU, the University of West Bohemia, of an educational license for the Outpost24 Vulnerability Assessment Management solution OUTSCAN. With OUTSCAN the students can from now on make use of one of the most advanced vulnerability assessment tools available on the market. By working with the latest technology ZCU will be able to enhance the level of IT security education and the students will be familiar with the use of the most sophisticated IT security solutions used in the market today. Unauthorized access to IT networks is rapidly becoming one of the primary threats to any operational network and is the cause of significant and increasing damage to its owners, therefore being able to offer the highest level of education in the field of IT security is critically important to ZCU and to the Czech economy.”
