New: Agentless Scanning for VMware Workloads
Runecast introduces the industry's first agentless scanning solution for workloads running on VMware vSphere [2], revolutionizing vulnerability detection and eliminating the burden of agent deployment and updates. This breakthrough technology simplifies vulnerability scanning for Windows and Linux, especially in dynamic hybrid-cloud setups, enabling comprehensive coverage and faster vulnerability assessments with reduced management complexity.

New: Compliance Auditing for DORA
In response to escalating cyber threats within the Banking, Financial Services and Insurance (BFSI) sector, the European Union’s Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA) addresses operational disruptions to ensure that banks, insurance companies and investment firms remain resilient.
Runecast has added automated DORA compliance audits for VMware vSphere and NSX users, ensuring continuous compliance with the regulation, which takes effect across EU Member States on 17 January 2025. This builds upon Runecast's track record of providing automated compliance auditing for regulations like PCI DSS, GDPR, and ISO2700.

Updated: vSphere DISA STIG Audits
Runecast offers the broadest DISA STIG coverage for VMware vSphere [3] 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.
