San Antonio, TX – February 20, 2012 – Digital Defense, Inc. (DDI), a leading provider of managed cloud-based network security technologies, announced the upcoming release of Frontline™ Solutions Platform (FSP) Release 5.0, an eagerly awaited enhancement of the organization’s online proprietary vulnerability management system. The launch, scheduled for March, will preview at the RSA Conference 2012 in San Francisco.
The latest Frontline offering will provide clients, on a customized, confidential basis, information such as peer group analysis and proactive threat analysis. The platform’s Active View™ Community Dashboard will help clients improve their security posture through:
- At-a-glance Risk Based Host Management
- Security GPA® Benchmarking (a 4.0 grading of a client’s security stance)
- Cloud Community Competition (C3) Remediation Program Scoring
C3 features employ workplace gaming principles to incent user engagement and facilitate heightened security awareness among a community of stakeholders.
Digital Defense president and CEO, Larry Hurtado, states, “Unlike traditional vulnerability scanning tools, Frontline offers quick and robust insights. The FSP 5.0 release with our new C3 feature set stimulates more aggressive and effective risk reduction by our introduction of competitive scoring features. The platform includes a powerful workflow management venue for clients to effectively manage and track remediation of both vulnerability scanning and penetration test findings, resulting in reduced operational expenses and trending capabilities over time.”
DDI’s managed service approach, coupled with Frontline, is unique and appealing to clients ranging from small businesses to large enterprises. Frontline streamlines remediation efforts by enabling the quick identification of the highest risk devices, allowing clients to continuously improve their security posture. DDI’s certified Security Analysts provide expert knowledge, which has proven invaluable to clients in the vulnerability management process.
Frontline is integral to DDI’s “Collective Security Intelligence”, the analysis of aggregate data by the company’s Vulnerability Research Team (VRT) to accelerate the discovery of Zero Day vulnerabilities. The data, available through DDI’s cloud-based solution, is mined via Frontline and communicated back to the DDI client community in Active View’s easily digestible, visual format.
