    Ancor Installation:

    SecPod Ancor™ is a scalable analytics and correlation engine that provides real-time, integrated security intelligence. It acts as the security intelligence platform for SecPod Saner. Using the services of Ancor, Saner identifies potential security vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and missing patches and remediates the system to keep it secure.

    Ancor collates various types of information such as vulnerability, malware heuristics, vulnerability remediation, endpoint visibility and software reputation service from different sources, and combines it with the latest security standards and best practices to provide a robust security intelligence platform. The Ancor engine uses its web services API to guide Saner to collect information regarding the security posture of the system, perform assessments on the vulnerability state of the system, and offer remediation for those vulnerabilities, along with monitoring events in real-time and continuously enforcing security policies.
