Assuria Auditor Architecture
Assuria Auditor is almost unique amongst vulnerability scanning solutions in offering both resident software agent and agentless credentialed scanning and assessment features. Unobtrusive, self contained resident agents operate autonomously, using central controller facilities only for policy or knowledge base updates and for uploading scan results.
Agentless, credentialed scanning allows deep assessment of target systems without the need to install agents. Using securely managed credentials (username and password) Assuria Auditor RA scans systems using the same built-in policies and checks as the resident agents.
Scan results are stored in the Assuria Auditor Console Database, where analysis, reporting and remediation management is also handled. Many hundreds of resident agents can be managed from a single console.
