What to Expect at Runecast Booth 215
Industry experts attending VMware Explore in Las Vegas are cordially invited to visit the Runecast booth, no. 215, for an exclusive demonstration of Runecast’s enablement for organizations that require a smooth transition toward proactive approaches for mitigating risk and ensuring continuous regulatory compliance and uptime.
New: Agentless Scanning for VMware Workloads
Runecast introduces the industry's first agentless scanning solution for workloads running on VMware vSphere , revolutionizing vulnerability detection. This breakthrough technology makes vulnerability scanning of Windows and Linux seamless, especially for dynamic hybrid-cloud setups, eliminating the burden of agent deployment and updates.
Organizations can effortlessly scale their scanning efforts by adopting agentless scanning, enabling comprehensive coverage and faster vulnerability assessments across the VMware environment with reduced management complexity. This efficient approach also minimizes resource consumption and preserves device performance, to aid with companies' ESG policies while achieving continuous compliance and risk-based vulnerability management.
New: Compliance Auditing for DORA
The Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) is a significant step by the EU to strengthen IT security within the Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) sector. In response to escalating cyber threats, DORA addresses operational disruptions, ensuring that banks, insurance companies and investment firms remain resilient. The regulation mandates comprehensive digital operational resilience measures and compliance checks for critical third-party ICT service providers.
Runecast is adding automated DORA compliance audits for VMware vSphere and NSX users, to ensure continuous compliance with this regulation, which is applicable within all EU Member States beginning 17 January 2025. Building upon a track record providing automated compliance auditing for such regulations as PCI DSS, GDPR, ISO2700 and others, Runecast is well-equipped to support DORA's implementation and enhance IT security in the financial industry.
Updated: vSphere DISA STIG Audits
Runecast offers the broadest DISA STIG coverage for VMware vSphere  and remediation capabilities for the US Federal space, ensuring continuous compliance and minimizing time-to-resolution of any potential issues in critical workloads. Combined with CISA’s recommendation of Runecast for automated risk-based vulnerability management aligned with the CISA Known Exploited Vulnerabilities (KEVs) Catalog, it demonstrates why multiple US Federal Agencies use Runecast for risk-based vulnerability management and continuous compliance.
New: Runecast SaaS
Runecast SaaS simplifies the deployment process by offloading infrastructure management, maintenance and security responsibilities to the service provider. Runecast SaaS also simplifies and enhances the OS security process by introducing agentless vulnerability scanning for AWS.
Customers have the flexibility to choose between new SaaS delivery or on-premises deployment (which can be air-gapped), as well as hybrid environments having both versions connected via the Runecast Enterprise Console.
New: Agentless Vulnerability Scanning for AWS
The new agentless vulnerability scanning capability for AWS workloads (via Runecas SaaS) offers several key benefits. Organizations can now leverage agentless vulnerability scanning for Amazon EC2 Linux instances in the cloud, eliminating the need for complex infrastructure management, maintenance and security responsibilities.
The Company Behind the Runecast Platform
As a company, Runecast has made significant historical advancements in the CNAPP and ITOM areas to aid CISOs and CIOs dealing with a reactive-approach status quo and IT skills shortages within their Security and Operations teams.
“Runecast's mission has always been to help IT leaders with revolutionary technologies and proactive approaches that enable them to stay ahead of emerging threats,” added Mr. Markov. “With these new features, Runecast continues to drive innovation and provide unmatched solutions for maintaining workload security and compliance across various environments.”
The Runecast platform enables teams to automate audits for common security standards, vendor security hardening guidelines, best practices, and risk-based vulnerability assessment and management, thereby enhancing efficiency and offsetting skills shortages.
