June 25, 2012

GENEVA, June 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –

High-Tech Bridge [http://www.htbridge.com] is pleased to announce that Security
Advisories by High-Tech Bridge Security Research Lab [https://www.htbridge.com/advisory ]
achieved the final stage of MITRE’s formal CVE Compatibility Process and are now
officially “CVE-Compatible [http://cve.mitre.org/compatible/questionnaires/146.html ]“.
CVE is a list of information security vulnerabilities and exposures that aims to provide
common names for publicly known problems. The goal of CVE is to make it easier to share
data across separate vulnerability capabilities (tools, repositories, and services) with
this “common enumeration.” The MITRE Corporation manages and maintains the CVE List with
assistance from the CVE Editorial Board.

High-Tech Bridge’s CEO, Mr. Ilia Kolochenko, commented: “At High-Tech Bridge we
strongly believe that CVE project has a great importance for the security industry. Being
able to coordinate vulnerability research, disclosure and mitigation by CVE identifiers is
a key point to make information security efficient. We are going to contribute as much as
we can to the CVE project and its values”.

“High-Tech Bridge has demonstrated its commitment to providing its customers with a
comprehensive security advise by integrating CVE names into their Security Advisories. As
security threats increase in number, complexity, and frequency today, organizations
require clear and concise direction from security services like High-Tech Bridge’s
Security Advisories to help them proactively prepare for and respond to these problems,”
said Robert Martin, the CVE Compatibility Lead at MITRE. “The use of CVE Identifiers in
their security advisories will help High-Tech Bridge’s customers close the gaps in
coverage that often result from using disparate security sources, thereby helping ensure
more comprehensive protection against new and emerging vulnerabilities and exposures.”
