PANCast Episode 10: How Does Agentless Scan Work?
As the name suggests, agentless scan enables you to protect hosts in the cloud without the multiple installation hassle which can be the worst nightmare for all the Cloud Administrators out there. Basically agentless will discover all supported cloud hosts in AWS, Azure or GCP to initiate scans for all of them automatically once you click on the “Agentless Scan” button. Doesn’t it sound amazing and easy? Because we all know that installing defenders on every host usually takes a lot of time and energy, this is exactly why agentless scanning is here to make life much easier.
