A pair of vulnerability-assessment and remediation tool vendors are separately upgrading their products so that customers more easily can prioritize which networked systems need to be fixed.

    Citadel Security Software Inc. says Version 3.5 of its Hercules desktop and server software includes new technology called AssetGuard that helps companies determine what needs fixing by examining vulnerability-assessment data collected from assorted scanners against an inventory of applications running on the network. Based on written policies, fixes can be prioritized.

    Hercules 3.5 aggregates data from scanners such as those from eEye Digital Security Inc., Foundstone Inc. and Internet Security Systems Inc.

    Other enhancements include the ability to query Hercules' management console for information about what types of computers with specific vulnerabilities are running on a sub-net and then scheduling remediation efforts.
