VUPEN Security Launches the Exploits & PoCs Service for Security Vendors and Penetration Testing Professionals

PARIS -- (Marketwire) -- 06/04/09 -- VUPEN Security, a leading security research company, announces the availability of the VUPEN Exploits & PoCs Service providing private exploit and proof-of-concept codes developed by VUPEN team of reverse engineers and security researchers.

The service enables security vendors (antivirus, IDS, IPS and vulnerability management providers) to supplement their internal research efforts and quickly developp vulnerability-based and/or exploit-based signatures and rules to proactively detect and protect against potential or real threats (defense). The service also allows security professionals (Pentesters, Consultants, Engineers, and CSOs) to regularly perform penetration testing and identify the latest vulnerabilities (offense).

Although there are many ways to secure systems and applications, the only way to truly know how secure is your network is to test yourself. By performing penetration tests against your environment, you can replicate the types of actions that a malicious attacker would take, giving you a more accurate representation of your security posture at any given time. Maintaining a secure network requires constant vigilance and regular security testing with the latest exploits and PoCs.

VUPEN team of security researchers and reverse engineers analyse new vulnerabilities and security patches, and develop exploit codes which allow security professionals to perform regular penetration and security testing using commercial-grade exploits, identify actual and exploitable threats within their systems and networks, distinguish real security threats from false positives, evaluate the effectiveness of existing security policies, protection products, and patches, achieve and maintain compliance e.g. PCI or ISO 27001, and improve security of systems and networks.

With each exploit or proof-of-concept, VUPEN Security provides an in-depth binary analysis of the exploited vulnerability to allow security vendors (IDS/IPS, Anti-Virus, Firewalls, Content filtering, etc) to reduce costs related to internal research, analysis of vulnerabilities, or reverse engineering of binary patches, cut-time and quickly develop exploit-based and generic signatures or rules, verify the effectiveness of existing signatures or rules, distinguish real security threats from false positives, improve quality of their security solutions and increase competitive advantages.

The service is available on an annual subscription basis. The latest exploits and binary analysis released by VUPEN security are available at: http://www.vupen.com/exploits

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
Digital Transformation: Preparing Cloud & IoT Security for the Age of Artificial Intelligence. As automation and artificial intelligence (AI) power solution development and delivery, many businesses need to build backend cloud capabilities. Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
