ESET joins ranks as a CVE Numbering Authority (CNAs)

18

Dubai, UAE: Working in concert with Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE®) Program, ESET, the leading Europe-based endpoint protection platform vendor, is authorized by the CVE Program as a CVE Numbering Authority (CNA).

Organizations designated as CNAs are responsible for the assignment of CVE IDs to vulnerabilities, and for creating and publishing information about the vulnerability in the associated CVE record.

The status means that ESET will be able to publish CVE records, including the CVE ID, descriptor, and references concerning vulnerabilities discovered in its own products and those discovered by ESET researchers in third-party products not covered by other CNAs. As a CNA, ESET can better fulfill its leadership role in innovating security technologies and product R&D and promoting high security standards in the broader IT ecosystem.

“Engaging in the international, community-driven Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures (CVE®) Program brings us closer to our goal of supporting ongoing collaboration with the wider cyber security sector, as well as academic, business, and government stakeholders. Simultaneously, it allows our internal security and R&D teams to more efficiently and consistently address security weaknesses wherever they may be, and to remain proactive in fighting vulnerabilities and threats,” says Daniel Chromek, chief information security officer at ESET.

ESET is a strong believer in, as well as a practitioner of, the coordinated vulnerability disclosure process and publicly credits security vulnerability reporters for their efforts (if they do not wish to remain anonymous).
