Difenda AVM

Achieve continuous visibility with Advanced Vulnerability Management

Difenda AVM continuously monitors, detects, and remediates key vulnerabilities and configuration issues, minimizing the window of opportunity for attackers. Simplify vulnerability management processes by leveraging automation, business intelligence, and real-time visibility.

Traditional vulnerability management doesn’t go far enough

Today’s businesses rely on multiple changing technologies—creating significant compatibility and integration challenges. Each deployment introduces a range of vulnerabilities and poor data flow, emphasizing the need for organizations to maintain constant vigilance. 

And yet, many organizations struggle with hundreds or thousands of pages of vulnerabilities produced by traditional vulnerability scanners, making it difficult to prioritize remediation in a risk-based and timely manner. The result is constant exposure to the largest and most imminent risks in their environment. 

Difenda AVM offers a strategic approach to vulnerability management that leverages machine learning, business intelligence, and real-time operational and management dashboards that allow remediation teams to focus and address true areas of risk in technologically complex environments.

Introducing Difenda AVM

Difenda AVM is designed to streamline every core aspect of vulnerability management, including regular vulnerability scans, implementation of secure configuration standards, prioritized remediation of detected vulnerabilities, and deployment of operating system and software patches.

Difenda AVM offers:

  • Continuous vulnerability assessment across all technologies and assets
  • Prioritized remediation activities based on additional business context (such as asset sensitivity)
  • Streamlined risk deferment, acceptance, and tracking
  • Real-time vulnerability management visibility through the Difenda Shield portal
  • An automated asset management framework that improves connectivity and understanding across your organization

Difenda Shield | AVM Features

• Integrate asset information discovered through vulnerability scanning with other supported Difenda Shield modules
• Continuously update CMDB data, including technical specifications and installed software
•Track additional business context for each asset, including parent business services, asset sensitivity, external exposure, and environmental factors such as production or development

Asset Reconciliation
