Frost & Sullivan Names Digital Defense, Inc. Best Vulnerability Management Scan Engine
Read the Competitive Differentiation & Expert Analysis
Vulnerability management is more than the detection and reporting of vulnerabilities.
Learn why Frost & Sullivan has identified Digital Defense, Inc. as having The Best Scan Engine.
- Digital Defense has a proprietary technology that is used to first scan for changes or to discover new hosts in the network; the theory is without true comprehension of the hosts, false positives and an over reporting of assets is inevitable.
- By focusing on Host Discovery, fingerprinting, and explicit testing based upon characteristics of the host, Frontline VM yields few false positives, and cuts down on the possibility of abrasion to the endpoints.
- Frontline VM addresses the reality that enterprise networks are a dynamic environment.
The patent-pending Network Host Correlation (also referred to as scan-to-scan reconciliation) solves the issues associated with poor host matching algorithms that introduce “ghost” assets into the network asset inventory often found with other remote unauthenticated scanning.
DDI incorporates a SecurityGPA® grading system that incorporates not only the risk ratings of vulnerabilities identified on the host, but also weighs-in the criticality of a host to the network for a more holistic risk value.
Vulnerability management is offered as a client-managed (VM) or DDI managed service (VM-Pro) which includes the expertise of a Personal Security Analyst (PSA) to project manage the full vulnerability lifecycle from initial discovery to successful remediation.
