Content support

Risk Scan Engine can use content from many organizations. This section lists the compliance and vulnerability content sources you may wish to use.

Risk Scan Engine has wide adoption and robust schema support. One advantage to the SCAP family of specifications is that there is a significant amount of freely-available content that is written in compatible formats. A continuous monitoring solution that is SCAP-based can leverage these content sources and avoid having to dedicate a team to content creation and migration activities. Most available content addresses the security compliance and known-vulnerability detection use-cases.
