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 everything that is running on the server to discover the weaknesses that hackers and bots alike are looking for.

Running multiple port scanning tools is a pain

Admins often have half a dozen scanners sitting around and one or two favorites. On small networks there is time to run several tools and then compare the results. Somewhat complicated networks or networks that manage confidential data need reporting that is accurate, easy to generate and that delivers prioritized vulnerability reports. It may be time to move to a single VA tool.

When a basic port scan is just not enough

Our networked world is getting way too 'interesting'. On top of your routine demands, compliance requirements are coming to your network soon (if you aren't already coping with them). You need a single, solid, common sense scanning solution to find and handle the really nasty vulnerabilities that must be resolved to be in compliance.

Does your port scanning tool come with PCI compliance?

Got credit card data? Our Vulnerability Assessment tool, AVDS, comes with PCI compliance reporting at no extra cost. Beyond Security is a PCI Approved Scanning Vendor and AVDS is the tool we use to produce compliance reports. So run AVDS to do your routine port scanning, keep a clean network and breeze through PCI compliance requirements.
