Symantec ESM Network Assessment module helps you quickly determine whether new security incidents or vulnerabilities (security events) threaten your enterprise. By leveraging the industry-leading Symantec Vulnerability Database with vulnerabilities indexed by CVE and Bugtraq ID, organizations can analyze business risk and develop remediation strategies. With responsive vulnerability signatures and detailed remediation information sent via Symantec Security Response, Symantec ESM Network Assessment module provides timely updates, allowing organizations to proactively prevent the exploitation of vulnerabilities.
Symantec Security Response posts the content of newly discovered vulnerabilities and countermeasures to the LiveUpdate servers. During alert situations, Symantec Security Response posts the information to the LiveUpdate servers as soon as it is available. You can use the manual download feature in Symantec Enterprise Security Manager to ensure that you have the latest Security Updates that include the latest vulnerability signatures.
