Puppet, supplier of configuration management tools for developers, introduces Puppet Remediate. This is a safety tool that helps companies identify and correct weaknesses in their systems. The company’s gonna let Techzine know.

According to a 2018 Forrester study, 58 percent of companies experienced a cyber security incident at least once in the last year. More than 41 percent of these incidents exploited a vulnerability in software. The research shows that the problem is that the workflow for managing weaknesses is often done manually. If there are automated workflows, they are often not well structured. As a result, the recovery of weaknesses is slow, and the IT infrastructure is exposed to attacks. This is the reason for Puppet to launch Puppet Remediate.

“The process most organizations use today to manage weaknesses is not sustainable for reducing the safety risk. There is a huge gap between advanced scanning tools that identify vulnerabilities and the fragmented and manual, error-prone approach to addressing these vulnerabilities,” said Matt Waxman, Head of Product at Puppet. “Puppet Remediate fills this gap and gives IT professionals the insight they need to put an end to the current tiring work associated with the recovery of weaknesses.

Less hassle with cyber security

Puppet Remediate reduces the time between weakness detection and recovery. This is done across the entire infrastructure of a company, by means of integrations with security partners. For example, data on infrastructure and vulnerabilities are combined. There is also rapid identification of which parts of the infrastructure are affected by vulnerabilities. There is also the possibility of taking immediate action to correct weaknesses. This is possible without the need for agents on both Linux and Windows via SSH and WinRM.
