London, March 17, 2016 – Greenbone, a leading provider of vulnerability management solutions, is entering the UK market. Greenbone’s security solutions are immediately available to UK organisations from the global channel partner, Exclusive Networks.

Greenbone Networks, which is headquartered in Osnabrueck, Germany, has experienced significant recent growth and Lukas Grunwald, CTO of Greenbone Networks, sees high potential from the UK market: “Cybercrime levels are increasing globally and UK organisations are just as vulnerable to the latest threats as their global counterparts. It is no longer enough to protect corporate networks via standard tools like firewall or antivirus software alone, and companies are seeking cost-efficient methods to raise the bar for attackers by actively managing their vulnerabilities.”

Greenbone Networks helps organisations to rapidly and effectively address IT security vulnerabilities, reducing the attack surface by an order of magnitude. Recent, highly publicised and critical bugs, such as Heartbleed, Shellshock and, most recently, Drown, have highlighted the security risks posed to organisations from this type of vulnerability. 

The Greenbone Security Manager (GSM) is a solution for vulnerability analysis and management. It identifies security vulnerabilities in enterprise IT networks and evaluates the risk potential. GSM also recommends measures to resolve detected vulnerabilities. The outcome is that organisations can find weak points faster than cybercriminals, preventing attacks before they happen. A daily security update feed with more than 45,000 network vulnerability tests also forms part of the solution. In contrast to competing offerings, the Greenbone turnkey appliance solution is based on fully transparent and auditable Open Source software, and can be implemented within minutes.
