Vulnerability scanning has been around since 2000. Virtually every enterprise security team today utilizes vulnerability scanning – and likely a vulnerability management system. In fact, many analysts regard vulnerability scanning, at least, as having fully commoditized.
At Digital Defense, we beg to differ. Accuracy remains elusive with even the largest VM solution providers- even after 17 years of technology evolution.
Digital Defense continues to invest in vulnerability assessment, management, and adjacent market spaces that can benefit from fast, lightweight footprint, comprehensive and accurate network security technologies & risk assessment tools. Three examples of Digital Defense technologies that continue to deliver market-leading differentiation are DDI NIRV™, DDI DNA™, and DDI VRT™.
DDI NIRV – the technology core of Frontline RNA™ – works on the principle of real-time event-based tuning. As it learns more about hosts and the network, NIRV adjusts its plugin sets and auditing mechanisms in real time – leading to far more accurate and complete scanning data.
While Digital Defense has achieved public acclaim for its superior vulnerability scanning, vulnerability management, and best practice consultative services, we are also actively involved in security threat research.
Digital Node Attribution (DNA) is the core technology within Frontline VM that eliminates network drift. As point in time scans from RNA are fed into Frontline Vulnerability Manager™, DNA is able to match host identification artifacts associated with a specific endpoint over time – including dynamic identifiers like IP address, DNS hostname and NetBIOS hostname – and reconcile them back to a common identity.
