Vulnerability Intelligence that is known for its quality, comprehensiveness, and timeliness
Secunia collaborates closely with many vendors, researchers, security experts, customers, security organisations, and expert users to ensure that the Secunia intelligence is accurate, comprehensive, up-to-date, and timely.
Secunia engages in direct dialogue with numerous vendors and open source projects to ensure that vulnerabilities are fixed correctly, and that Secunia Advisories are as detailed and accurate as possible.
Secunia provides further analysis and PoC's to help vendors identify the core problem, and in certain cases we even verify patches prior to release.

Reliable Vulnerability Intelligence
Reliability has always been the key success factor for the Secunia Vulnerability Intelligence, and is a true differentiator for our business and products, setting us apart from the competition. To maintain the position as the most active vulnerability research company, Secunia continuously invests in the needed resources, as well as in the in-house vulnerability research team.
Secunia is the first, and currently, the only provider of a comprehensive, non-intrusive vulnerability scanner, which builds an accurate inventory based on program files, and a vulnerability assessment of the inventory based on the Vulnerability Intelligence. This unique software inspector technology is powered by Secunia Vulnerability Intelligence, as well as by valuable contributions from millions of Personal Software Inspector users and corporate customers.
Secunia developed the Software Inspector technology, based on feedback from the market and the community - which supported a need for more accurate and operations-friendly scanners that could either complement or replace the use of traditional network based scanners, which are prone to false positive and false negative results.
