Syxsense, an IT and security management business, has released a Syxsense Enterprise, which provides endpoint management and endpoint security in real-time, as well as vulnerability monitoring and remediation.

Syxsense Enterprises'' new SaaS-based unified endpoint security and management platform aims to integrate patch management, vulnerability scanning and remediation, and mobile device management (MDM) into a single central console. The goal is to help IT teams manage, detect, and secure all endpoints with visibility across their desktop, laptop, server, and mobile devices.

Detecting vulnerabilities and new devices

According to a survey by Tripwire, previous attackers identified misconfiguration, unpatched vulnerabilities, and software upgrades. Security misconfiguration vulnerabilities are often a result of inadequate default configuration, side-effects of configuration modification, or simply inadequate setup.

Depending on how many items to be repaired, 59 percent of experts indicated they can detect new hardware and software on their network within hours, while many noted that this process is lengthy, with 35% suggesting that less than half of their assets are automatically identified.

Unified solution puts it all in one place

Syxsense Enterprise combines all of the tools needed to keep endpoint devices up to date (patch management), remote management of endpoint devices (device management) and detect and remediate security vulnerabilities from a single console.

By delivering a unified cloud solution to our customers, we ease the stress of managing business-critical resources and expeditating security operations. Ashley Leonard, Syxsense''s CEO, said in a press release.

Remediation workflows made easy

Syxsense Enterprise creates remediation workflows with a simple to use editor.

Syxsense helps improve the detection of software vulnerabilities in both the operating system and third-party applications, as well as open ports, deactivated firewalls, and misleading user account policies. A team may simply receive the workflow, modify it to their liking, and send it out, according to Leonard.

Enhanced management of mobile devices

Syxsenses'' mobile device management suite has been unveiled. Outside the previously supported Windows, Linux, and Mac environments, this solution allows IT to manage devices running on iOS, iPadOS, and Android. Syxsense MDM includes all the necessary tools for device enrollment, inventory, and configuration management, application deployment, data containerization, and remote device lock/reset/wipe (making it possible for IT to remove sensitive data).

Qualys, Tenable, Rapid7, Ivanti, and others are among the competing solutions.
