What does the Datum Security Endpoint Agent (DSEA) actually do?

The Datum Security Endpoint Agent is a combination of multiple commercially available and open source software packages that scan individual computers for two primary components: 

  1. Is the software on the target machine up to date and patched to prevent any know vulnerabilities from being exploited? 
  2. Is the software on this machine configured, or “hardened”, in a way that prevents known vulnerabilities from being exploited?
