Digital Defense, Inc. Key Developments

Digital Defense Unveils New Security Technology at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit

Digital Defense, Inc. is exhibiting Vulnerability Data Refinery (VDR) capabilities at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit this week. DDI's new VDR offering refines data from a variety of assessment sources producing higher quality guidance to remediation teams to more efficiently address findings. Through integration via application programming interfaces, the VDR also provides more intelligent guidance to enforcement technologies to protect information assets on a more proactive basis. While a variety of assessment tools exist in the marketplace, these offerings struggle to keep track of network-deployed systems over time. There is also a high degree of inconsistency seen in the results of these tools many of which introduce extremely high false positive rates. VDR was developed in response to these industry challenges that result in diverting precious security analyst resources away from their primary mission: protecting the enterprise from cybercriminals. Even worse, cybercriminal knows these issues exist and is one of the reasons why they continue to be successful even though organizations are spending significant dollars to protect their information assets. The Ponemon Institute was engaged to conduct an independent review of VDR technology. The initial findings reported include: 100% of respondents indicated strong levels of importance (66% very important; 34% important) associated with the capability for VDR to improve the accuracy of standalone security intelligence tools by importing data from complementary and overlapping data sources. 97% of research respondents positively rated the VDR design (76% very positive and 21% positive). 72% of respondents indicated high interest in implementation of the VDR technology within their organization.
