Vulnerability scans are fundamentally compute intensive; that’s just the nature of the beast, and they need to be done repeatedly, over and over again, because of the number of vulnerabilities that get reported every day and because the time to exploit has become so short. Traditional software approaches break down in these cases because software takes over the machine. Instead, we need a new generation of software that has the intelligence to detect unused computing resources and harvest them without impacting the end user and the business. Advanced peer-to-peer-based technology can detect and remediate vulnerabilities at scale in an enterprise with zero impact. It can protect the network during software delivery and will never stress endpoints while applying patches, configurations or remediations.
