GREENSBORO, NC--(Marketwired - Apr 14, 2014) - Secure Designs Inc., ( -- a leader in managed IT security solutions for small to mid-sized businesses (SMB) -- has introduced new, cloud-based Vulnerability Scanning software that makes security assessment and remediation affordable and easy. The solution reduces upfront costs and empowers even the most resource-constrained IT departments to drive down security risks and improve productivity.

"Vulnerability management is considered a network security best practice and is increasingly required by compliance regulators," said Ron Culler, CTO and co-founder of Secure Designs. "However, conducting in-house vulnerability scans is challenging, resource-intensive and expensive, as is hiring an external consultant."

Secure Designs' cloud-based Vulnerability Management software is designed to address the unique requirements of smaller organizations (micro, SMB and distributed enterprises) for affordable, easily-implemented solutions that add value through improved productivity. The solution enables on-demand identification and rapid remediation of weak spots in the network and scales easily to meet organizational needs. Out-of-the-box reporting capabilities simplify regulatory compliance requirements and provide a real-time view of overall security posture whenever required.

Solution Features

  • Best-of-breed scanning engines automatically scan and score network assets, host applications, and web applications to identify vulnerabilities and reduce the risk of security breaches.
  • On-demand vulnerability assessments provide a real-time view of the organization's security posture whenever required, without incurring extra costs
  • Real-time device discovery -- including mobile and contractor devices -- ensures that the IT asset inventory is always current, helping to prevent unsecure and unauthorized devices from accessing the network.
  • Automatic compilation and prioritization of vulnerabilities streamlines the risk assessment and planning process
  • Detailed remediation information and analysis enables organizations rapidly to remedy vulnerabilities

Every day for its 6,000+ customers, Secure Designs reviews over 450 million security events scans 50 million email and protects some $525 billion in financial assets from its custom-designed network operations and data centers in Greensboro, demonstrating its ability to manage security for customers anywhere in the world and still remain the low cost/high value provider.
