Agent or Agentless?
Agent Based or Agentless scanning – should you have to choose which is right for you?
“The debates rage on” – a quote from a recent paper by a vendor which is arguably responsible for most of the agentless vs. agent-based security assessment ‘debate’ in the first place and is of course one of the leading exponents of agentless technologies!
This White Paper discusses the Pro's and Con's of each approach and provides a view as to why it's really a pointless debate - you shouldn't have to make the choice at all!
Assuria adopts an 'Agent Optional' approach to all its solutions, combining powerful and unobtrusive Resident Agents with secure, crdentialed Agentless operations in order to provide choice and fully optimised solutions.
