Risk Based Security, Inc. and Vicarius Ltd. Announce Partnership

Risk Based Security, Inc. (RBS) is pleased to announce a partnership with Vicarius Ltd. (Vicarius) to integrate the best-in-class vulnerability intelligence from VulnDB into the Vicarius Topia platform.

Vicarius protects clients against exploitation of software vulnerabilities by identifying and prioritizing vulnerabilities within their client environments and limiting access to software that has exploitable code.  With the newly announced partnership between RBS and Vicarius, data from VulnDB can be leveraged within Topia to gain improved insight into relevant vulnerability information and deliver a richer, more comprehensive prioritized vulnerability analysis to Topia customers.  This in turn helps Topia customers predict, prioritize, and protect against software vulnerabilities before they are actually exploited.

“Vicarius is truly thrilled about this collaboration with Risk Based Security.  With VulnDB, Topia offers the strongest platform in the market for threat intelligence and patchless software protection” said Michael Assraf, Founder and CEO of Vicarius.

Early this year, Risk Based Security released the year end VulnDB QuickView report that showed 2017 broke the previous all-time record for the highest number of reported vulnerabilities. The 20,832 vulnerabilities cataloged during 2017 by Risk Based Security (VulnDB) eclipsed the total covered by MITRE’s Common Vulnerability Enumeration (CVE) and the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) by more than 7,900.

“Combining the rich and comprehensive vulnerability intelligence from VulnDB with Topia’s innovative code analysis and application protection technologies results in a powerful solution for companies wanting to understand the vulnerabilities in the applications they have deployed and take steps to prevent those vulnerabilities from being exploited.  We’re excited to be working with Vicarius to make their Topia platform even more effective”, said Eric Paxton, Director of Business Operations for Risk Based Security.

About Vicarius

Vicarius Ltd. protects clients against exploitation of both known and previously-undiscovered software vulnerabilities.

The Vicarius powered platform, called Topia, enables companies to predict, prioritize and protect against software vulnerabilities before they can be exploited by hackers.  Topia begins by identifying vulnerabilities within clients’ digital environment using proprietary binary code analysis methodologies. It then prioritizes these vulnerabilities, building a live threat map of the organization’s unique infrastructure properties. Lastly, a protection layer is deployed to limit access to software exploitable code in real-time.

Vicarius’ Topia clients enjoy a complete and automatic solution for the secure management of any software services in their network – shattering the common paradigm of software being treated as “safe” until a vulnerability is exposed.  This new mind shift allows organizations to protect any software without involving the vendor or even their own IT teams.
