beSECURE: Network Scanning for Complicated, Growing or Distributed Networks

Upgrade Your Network Scanner! Free scanners are great - up to a point. That point is when your network reaches a critical size, your assets have acquired a critical value or your company, industry (or Uncle Sam) has set new compliance requirements that those freebee tools just can't handle.

Port Scanning Tools VS Vulnerability Assessment Tools

Port scanning tools – just the first step to network security Your port scanning tools are nice, but... When your network reaches a critical size, your assets have acquired a critical value or when new compliance standards hit, your port scanning tools may have reached their limit. It’s the job of vulnerability assessment and management tools to combine port scanning with the investigation of ever...

Vulnerability Management Tools

Why VM got a bad rap The number of servers, desktops, laptops, phones and personal devices accessing network data is constantly growing. The number of applications in use grows nearly exponentially. And as known vulnerabilities grew in number, IT managers found that traditional vulnerability management tools could easily find more problems than could be fixed with their existing budgets.

Closing The Door on Network Attacks

Network security scanning Your network is 100 times more likely to be attacked with a known exploit than an unknown one. And the reason behind this is simple: There are so many known exploits and the complexity of networks is so great that the chances are good that one of these known vulnerabilities are present and will allow an attacker access to your data.

Network Security and the Fourth Pillar

The three crumbling pillars of network security Why is network security getting harder? Access control, firewall and Intrusion Prevention Systems are failing to keep attackers from reaching vulnerable systems and network administrators have added as many layers beyond those as possible to no avail. This is a problem because successful attacks are often done with these solutions in place and being ...

Pen Testing Alternative Improves Security and Reduces Costs

beSECURE: Alternative to Pen Testing Our definition of penetration testing Pen testing (penetration testing) is the discovery of vulnerable network equipment or applications by evaluating their response (behavior) to specially designed requests. In some cases a payload (message, marker or flag) is delivered to prove beyond a doubt that the vulnerability can be exploited. Pen testing is usually a m...

Why Patching Everything Fails

Hundreds of millions of records have been stolen in recent corporate data loss incidents All of these compromised networks had patching programs in place. Yet every one of them fell victim to a KNOWN vulnerability, meaning that the weaknesses that hackers used were well described and discussed in the public domain and that, in theory, patches or work-arounds existed.
