Is Faddom Secure?

Faddom is very secure for several reasons –


The Faddom appliance it is a standalone VM installed within your own environment and scans IP addresses without the need for agents on each individual machine

No Requirement for Credentials

Faddom does not need to access individual servers; it can optionally collect details from hypervisors or cloud providers. For the permissions required see the below articles -

Firewall Security

Your firewall does not need to be open to the internet, however some ports need to be open to allow Faddom to gather all the information.

See What ports need to be open for Faddom to function? for a full list with explanations

It Can Work Offline

Faddom can be deployed in highly secure environments, including those with no internet access and/or DMZs. Faddom will run by itself inside your environment and will not send data outside itself.

See Can I deploy Faddom completely offline?

All Data In Your Environment

Faddom does not send any information or data outside of the appliance itself. All the information is collected and stored on the Faddom server, inside your environment. 

Security Is In Your Hands
