Retina Network Security Scanner
Retina Network Security Scanner is a straightforward and reliable application that comes in handy for users who need to discover all the IP addresses presented in the network (local or remote), web and virtual assets.
Because of its main purpose it was designed for, the application enables you to identify system, application, OS and web application vulnerabilities each time you perform a scanning job. This way, you are able to locate responsive nodes, then launch pre-defined scans against the targets.
What’s more, the utility helps you to audit your network for PII (Personally Identifiable Information) on remote machines.
This information is widely used to identify and locate a single person so you can easily perform registry checks and TCP fingerprinting.
Before performing any scanning process, you need to specify job information using the main interface. After that, the main scanner engine that the application comes with will receive the job file and begin the audit process displaying all the found IP addresses in your network.
Thus, you are able to secure your entire network against the most known vulnerabilities by adding up-to-date audit databases.
Also, by using Retina Network Security Scanner you have the possibility to create, modify and attach IP addresses and choose credentials within seconds.
Quite interesting at this application is that it allows you to locate network devices such as laptops, printers and even routers and modems, then determine if a single or multiple IP addresses are still active or haven’t been used for quite a long period of time.
You can repeat these discovery scans in order to verify the status for each device and view if any other new device is currently available in the network.
As far as the wireless devices are concerned, the application comes with a well-configured scanner that detects the presence of any wireless device located in the network. This way, you can perform audit actions on each device on your network no matter the connection it uses.
Because it enables you to practice the best security practices and regulatory audits, Retina Network Security Scanner is worth having when you need to optimize network performance and scan all the devices available on your network.
