FortiScan-VM is a complete vulnerability and compliance management solution that runs as a Virtual Appliance. As an enterprise-grade, carrier-scale software solution that runs on
FortiScan-VM is deployable in almost any sized organization, ranging from small retail outlets to large enterprises. The software platform's architecture can easily scale to assess, remediate and audit an enterprise's growing assets that include devices with an operating system or IP address. The software supports stackable asset groups, meaning the exact number of assets can be configured into the system to avoid over-provisioning and is easily managed through administrative domains. Each instance of the software can support up to 20,000 assets.
Customers have the option of deploying FortiScan-VM as an agent-based or agentless platform. Where an organization's policy either prohibits or makes it impractical for remote agentless scanning, an agent-based approach may be deployed. This is resolved by populating assets with FortiScan-VM's lightweight agent through mass installation means or manually. Another advantage of agent-based deployments is that vulnerabilities discovered through scanning not only are reported, but also automatically remediated as well. Those organizations that do not require in-depth scanning and automated remediation of vulnerabilities have the option of implementing the agentless version.
Automated compliance management is provided with easy to install, out-of-the-box compliance policies that include:
FortiScan-VM also supports policy updates provided through FortiGuard®
"The growing adoption of virtualized infrastructures, coupled with more aggressive corporate governance and regulatory compliance, is driving the need for new and easier to use vulnerability and compliance management (VCM) solutions," said
