Mr. Ilia Kolochenko, CEO of High-Tech Bridge, says: "Number of software vulnerabilities is continuously growing every year and it is very important to make sure that each discovered vulnerability has a unique globally-recognized identifier, such as CVE-ID. The new format of CVE-ID is an efficient response to the growth that will ensure that despite the increasing number of new vulnerabilities they will remain manageable.
MITRE and their CVE program play an extremely important role in the industry by enabling security researchers, software companies, penetration testers and vulnerability databases to coordinate their efforts aimed to make Internet and its end-users secure.
At High-Tech Bridge we are proud to be part of MITRE's CVE program that we use both for our security research and our information security services."
The CVE dictionary contains more than 63,000 unique entries. Products, services and organizations around the world use CVE-IDs to help enhance information security, and CVE is formally recommended by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU-T) standards body for worldwide use.
