Digital Defense’s “Daylight Scanning Time” Helps IT Security Teams Avoid Working Late Nights or Weekends

Frontline Vulnerability Manager™ Scanning Engine enables security scans during business hours

SAN ANTONIO, Texas, Nov. 01, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Digital Defense, Inc., a security technology and services provider, today announced Daylight Scanning Time with Frontline Vulnerability Manager (Frontline VM™), a native, cloud-based vulnerability management platform.

The introduction of Daylight Scanning Time is a dream come true for busy CISOs or IT staff charged with protecting the company sytems, assets, and employees.  Some of the most heavily promoted vulnerability scanning offerings must be used with extreme caution due to the potential for high network device failure rates during scanning.  Because of this issue, security teams are required to come into the office on weekends or late at night to ensure day-to-day business operations are not impacted.

“We are giving CISO and IT staffers back their family time,” said Gordon MacKay, EVP/CTO at Digital Defense, Inc. “Daylight Scanning Time is another benefit of our scanning engine as it does not tax system resources on network devices with incessant and ineffective probing, so scans can be performed and completed during normal business operations. Companies lose nothing, but gain a great deal of time and efficiency.”

Frontline VM enables Daylight Scanning Time through:

  • Enhanced threading technology, making it gentler to devices and networks
  • Intelligent device fingerprinting, for more prudent vulnerability analysis
  • Flexible, distributed scanning capabilities reducing cross-network scan traffic

Digital Defense’s patented scanning technology has been declared industry best by independent sources because of its ability to pinpoint real vulnerabilities and limit the number of false positives a security team needs to chase after. It provides more thorough and accurate visibility into network assets and a company’s security posture more quickly with better data management options.
