ThreatAdvice Continuous Vulnerability Scans

Including internal, external, and asset identification

The ThreatAdvice Breach Prevention Platform

Continuous vulnerability scanning is included in the ThreatAdvice Breach Prevention Platform, our flagship solution for comprehensive cybersecurity management.

Key Capabilities

The ThreatAdvice DETECT IT module provides you the ability to assess an environment.  This is critical as it tells you what is happening now, where the potential pitfalls are and where you are exposed.  We provide CONTINUOUS vulnerability scanning, which is different than most tools, and provides advantages such as providing alerts when new devices show up on your network, critical vulnerability alerts, etc.  Even though the scans are continuously, reports are archived into the dashboard for easy access.  Furthermore, continuous vulnerability scanning is starting to be required by most compliance frameworks. Other key capabilities include:

Simple Setup: Easy to use solution with intuitive dashboard. With Mac, Linux, and Windows sensors available, it’s easy to setup and begin scanning.​

Continuous Scanning: Continuously scan and monitor networks for new assets and vulnerabilities. Scans around-the-clock, even during business hours, with no impact to the network.​

New Device Alerts: Never miss the addition of a new device on your network, or the discovery of a new vulnerability. The system gives you real-time alerts for new devices and new, critical vulnerabilities so you’re always up to date and protected.​

Reporting: Reporting includes comprehensive reporting capabilities. Users can also access an executive summary to share with others.​ Reports can be generated in various formats such as PDF, HTML and CSV.

Assets Online: This number represents the total number of assets that are currently online as of the most recent inventory scans on your network(s). The number does not include the Externals configured to be scanned.​

Assets Scanned: This number represents the total number of assets, internal and external, that have been fully scanned.​

Assets Monitored: This number represents the total number of assets that have been identified over the current time range, including externals.​

Recent Alerts: Provides alerts of new devices as it occurs.
