iScan Online Brings Opportunistic Scanning from the Cloud to the Endpoint

Security Scanning Company Debuts with Scan Any Device, Anytime, Anywhere Capability

iScan Online (www.iscanonline.com), pioneers of opportunistic security scanning from the cloud to any device, anytime, anywhere officially launched today. The company has been in stealth mode since June 2012 and made its SaaS, cloud-based security scanning solution available on a limited pre-release basis. iScan Online fills the growing gap in security scanning as BYOD, remote workers and mobile technology create challenges that traditional security scanners cannot meet.

iScan Online was co-founded by Carl Banzhof and Billy Austin, both renowned security industry veterans with experience helping to guide leading security companies, including Citadel Security, SAINT and McAfee. Banzhof serves as Chief Executive Officer and Austin as President. The company has secured seed capital from a strategic investor who understands the important problem iScan Online is solving.

"Traditional vulnerability scanners, focused purely on infrastructure devices, do not provide enough context to help organizations prioritize their efforts," stated Mike Rothman of analyst firm Securosis, in the firm's recent Vulnerability Management Evolution research paper.

"Compliance demands that we scan all devices with access to private/sensitive/protected data...the scanner must be able to scan your environment quickly and effectively, whether that is 200 or 200,000 devices."

iScan Online fulfills all of these requirements for next generation security scanning.

"Today the status quo has changed. We live in a world of branch offices, remote workers, BYOD, transient and mobile users that make up the dark matter of our networks," said Banzhof. "These dark matter devices have been unreachable by IT security but actively embraced by malicious outsiders.

iScan Online delivers the next generation of security technology required to secure these devices."

To date, iScan Online is the first and only vendor to perform internal PAN, PCI and Vulnerability scanning without installing complex software or the need for additional hardware. Since offering its scanning technology on a limited pre-release basis in September, thousands of endpoints have been scanned using iScan Online.

Products currently offered include:

  • iScan Online Cloud Apps, which deliver online scanning via native web browser plug-ins or as a command line executable for Windows and Mac OS X.
  • iScan Online Cloud Console for managing device security and compliance scans.
  • iScan Online RESTful API for integration with 3rd party solutions.
  • iScan Online for Mobile - currently in development will provide security scanning and device management of smartphones and tablets via Android and iOS mobile apps.

In addition to scanning for a full range of vulnerabilities and for specific regulatory compliance mandates (PCI, HIPAA), iScan Online also provides data discovery scans that can detect specific data types including PAN (primary account / credit card numbers), social security numbers or user defined data such as customer records, financial documents etc.

iScan Online's patent pending scan delivery technology allow organizations to leverage their existing IT infrastructure to assess devices anytime and anywhere users are accessing network resources. By combining the iScan Online Cloud Apps with a web application, Microsoft Active Directory or an existing Remote Monitoring and Management or Systems management solution organizations can achieve greater visibility and control over the devices accessing their network resources.

By utilizing the multi-tenant SaaS/Cloud model, the ability to embed the iScan Cloud App in a branded web site and the option of customizing the iScan Cloud Console, the solution is a great fit for MSPs and other 3rd party integrators to offer a critical security and compliance service to their existing products.
