Melbourne, Australia – Advent One, Australia’s leading automation, security, and hybrid cloud consultancies, has partnered with Israeli based vulnerability management company, Vicarius. The partnership will accentuate Advent One’s existing cybersecurity detection and response capabilities by leveraging Vicarius’ TOPIA platform that runs automated patch management, threat assessment and vulnerability management across remote devices, third party applications and a range of operating systems.
“As our customers accelerate their cloud computing, endpoint expansion and remote working scenarios – their threat attack surface expands to the point where internal security teams are unable to keep up. The key areas where some companies fall short is in their patch management processes and their ability to assess, prioritise and remediate vulnerabilities in third party applications and remote operating systems,” comments Jon Ossip, CEO of Advent One.
With a 20-year pedigree in managing on-premises infrastructure, security, cloud and automation systems, the team at Advent One are continually scanning the market for the latest solutions that can solve common customer challenges.
“Patch management and third-party application control, from an operational and cybersecurity perspective, has always been a deeply coordinated process that takes time, human effort and attention-to-detail. As cybersecurity threats have evolved and a large volume of attacks being targeted to unpatched devices, endpoints or integrated third party applications, it became clear to our team that we needed to offer an automated, intelligent and 24-hour solution.” Ossip continues.
“The benefit of Vicarius over incumbent vulnerability management technologies is the ability to automate, assess, prioritise and remediate vulnerabilities in remote 3rd party applications and operating systems. Its key strength is in cloud or hybrid cloud environments where many applications or devices are being added and incorporated frequently,” comments Wayne Glynne, Head of Cybersecurity at Advent One.
“Particularly, the Vicarius Patchless Protection and Patch Management focus through the TOPIA platform is flexible and allows security teams to deploy OS and patch updates remotely and automatically, to any device across the network. This is an exciting evolution that can reduce patch management task times from weeks down to hours.”
The strategic partnership between Advent One and Vicarius will empower Advent One’s Australian customers to free up internal security resources to focus on strategic security efforts, by using Vicarius’ TOPIA to efficiently focus on critical threats, mainly generated from patch vulnerabilities, and share data between IT and security teams internally and externally.
“It’s an exciting partnership and offering for our customers and allows them to benefit from Advent One’s growing automation and hybrid cloud security expertise. As we accelerate the number of third-party applications and personal devices used in the corporate sector, being proactive with a solution to support that growth in a fast and flexible way should be one of the key strategic priorities for cybersecurity teams in Australian businesses.” concludes Jon Ossip.
