What is Exploit Detection and what systems does it support?


Exploit Detection (Mapping Service)
Sentinel provides the ability to cross-reference event data signatures with Vulnerability Scanner data. Users are notified automatically and immediately when an attack is attempting to exploit a vulnerable system. This is accomplished through:

Advisor Feed
Intrusion detection
Vulnerability scanning

Advisor provides a cross-reference between event data signatures and vulnerability scanner data. Advisor feed has an alert and attack feed. The alert feed contains information about vulnerabilities and threats. The attack feed is a normalization of event signatures and vulnerability plug-ins. For information about Advisor installation, see the Sentinel Installation Guide.
