VulnCheck's CPE Coverage Update (3-weeks after launch)

Patrick Garrityin/patrickmgarrity/

Three weeks ago, we introduced VulnCheck CPE enrichment to support the security community while the National Vulnerability Database (NVD) has experienced delays in processing new vulnerabilities. CPE generation is crucial for vulnerability tools and security teams, facilitating the mapping of software vulnerabilities (CVEs) to products.

Since the launch of NVD++ with CPE enrichment three weeks ago, we've received numerous inquiries about VulnCheck CPE.

Q: Are you truly providing CPE to the community at no cost?

A: Yes, we are offering VulnCheck CPE enrichment as a community service, free of charge for organizations. As a commitment to the security community, we consider CPE a vital function and have decided to include it in both our community service NVD++ and our commercial service VulnCheck NVD.

Q: What is VulnCheck’s CPE coverage?

A: Our efforts have been concentrated on maximizing CPE coverage for mainstream vendors and products. Currently, we maintain 100% coverage of 46 CVE Numbering Authorities (CNAs) and generate CPE for 117 out of 181 CNAs. To provide better visibility into our coverage, we've created a data visualization tool.
