Expanded Patch Content Now Available

Lumension is pleased to announce the immediate availability of expanded Windows 3rd party application patch content for all current Lumension® Patch and Remediation customers. We have added 11 new vendors to our GSS feed, bringing the total to 24 – and there are 17 new products covered, providing a total of 50 supported applications. For more information on the expanded Windows 3rd party application support for Lumension® Patch and Remediation, please visit KnowledgeBase article 1696.

Please note that in order to take advantage of this expanded content, the L.E.M.S.S. server and endpoint agent version must both be at v7.2 or later. In addition, with this expanded content release, Lumension has discontinued 3rd party application patches for L.E.M.S.S. v7.1 agents and earlier. As a result, any endpoints running L.E.M.S.S. v7.1 or earlier agent versions will no longer receive new 3rd party application patch content. While these endpoints may appear to be fully up-to-date, they will be increasingly vulnerable over time as additional vulnerabilities are identified. Please refer to the Lumension Upgrade Center for information on upgrading your servers and/or endpoints.

Customers can request new application coverage on the Lumension Product Feature Request – be sure to select “Lumension Patch and Remediation Content Request” from the Product drop-down.
