San Antonio, TX – March 28, 2011 Digital Defense, Inc.  (DDI), a leading provider of information security governance, risk management, and compliance (GRC) solutions, today announced it has a patent pending for its next generation vulnerability scanning technology.  The patent applies to DDI’s proprietary scanning engine as well as to the SaaS-based (Software as a Service) Frontline Solutions Platform (FSP), which delivers automated security solutions as well as the results of both automated and analyst-assisted DDI services.

“We are proud of our patent-pending technology.  Enhancing our cloud-based vulnerability management solution with a more powerful scanner greatly increases the operational efficiency of client remediation programs by not only scanning enterprise networks faster, but also with greater accuracy,” commented Larry R. Hurtado, president and CEO of Digital Defense. “Our solutions have always been optimized for recurring, full enterprise network vulnerability scanning.  Many organizations today are still only testing a limited number of devices on their networks due to the time and expense involved in full network scanning when using traditional premise-based offerings.  With our new technology, corporate resources can now scan even more quickly and efficiently and be able to apply more time to remediating findings – a valuable benefit to organizations needing to show more progress reducing business risk with the same or less staffing levels.”

DDI develops and maintains solutions to address the increasing security threats organizations encounter on a daily basis, without the burden of premise-based applications. The DDI FSP enables clients to protect key information assets quickly and easily, while freeing up internal IT staff to focus on core business needs.  DDI’s technology provides an uncomplicated, affordable way to address regulatory compliance requirements and manage business security risks.
