SanerNow works on a cloud-based one-server, one-agent model to support seamless functions in a hybrid workforce. It is powered by its home-grown world’s largest security intelligence which elevates SanerNow’s advanced vulnerability management to the next level. Detailed below on how each component of SanerNow’s architecture works.
SCAP Feed: #
The security research team at SecPod continuously works on getting the latest vulnerability and security updates, including CVE ID, CPE, CCE, CWE, CVSS score, severity range, exploit potential, and relevant patch fixes. After continuous research and analysis, all these security checks are fed into the home-grown SCAP feed every day.
SecPod’s SCAP repository is built over a decade of security research, and it currently hosts more than 160,000 security checks. The SCAP repository offers a natural language-based search interface to extract security information and is widely trusted by many other security vendors across the globe.
SanerNow Server: #
SanerNow server is hosted on the cloud to ease management for distributed workforces. The server continuously syncs with the SCAP feed to get the latest vulnerability details, which will be used to manage vulnerabilities in your network accurately. The server is supported by a web-based console that offers a graphical user interface to configure all the tasks from a single pane of glass.
SanerNow supports deployment on both cloud and on-premise variants to suit different organizations’ needs.
SanerNow Agent: #
The smart, lightweight, multifunctional agent must be installed on the endpoints to implement the advanced vulnerability management tasks. The agents receive the tasks from the server and silently execute them on the devices without interrupting the users. With SanerNow, you can,
- Customize the agent-server sync time according to your organization’s requirements.
- Establish a live communication channel between the agents installed on the devices and the server.
- Execute on-demand and real-time tasks by setting the agent in a live connection with the server.
SanerNow Agent as Network Scanner: #
The powerful agent also takes up the role of a network scanner to scan other devices in the network, saving additional costs over purchasing new hardware. The agents can be configured to scan the entire network to detect vulnerabilities across your IT infrastructure. The agent performs network scanning without consuming excessive bandwidth and system resources.
