Within the Difenda Labs environment, our Cyber Research and Response team runs continuous attacks based on the latest cyber tactics and techniques used to breach customer environments.

Difenda MDR allows customers to simplify their security processes with an integrated cybersecurity suite that leverages Azure Sentinel, Microsoft Defender, and any other Microsoft security services in use at the organization to provide proactive and ongoing protection.

The third recognition awarded to Difenda is, ‘Most Promising in Vulnerability Management.’ Difenda AVM is another component of the Difenda Shield that minimizes the likelihood and severity of potential exploits by monitoring, detecting, and prioritizing the remediation of critical vulnerabilities and configuration issues. 

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. This allows a focus on potential risks in complex environments. 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.

Our whole team at Difenda is dedicated to continuous improvements in the areas  of  Managed Detection and Response (MDR), Governance, Risk, and Compliance (GRC),  and Advanced Vulnerability Management (AVM). Difenda is honored to be the recipient of these three prestigious Cyber Defense Global InfoSec Awards.
