The IBM Internet Scanner vulnerability assessment application helps provide the foundation for effective network security for your business.
- Minimised business risk. Internet Scanner finds the weak spots in your network to help you secure your critical assets and prevent compromises that may result in the loss of availability, integrity or confidentiality of critical business information.
- Pre-emptive protection from attacks. By assessing the security of your networked systems and prioritising remediation tasks, Internet Scanner enables you to address high-risk vulnerabilities before they can be exploited in an attack. In fact, Internet Security Systems (ISS) was recently recognised by IDC as the worldwide market leader in network vulnerability assessment and management.
- Scalability. Whether used as a standalone solution for smaller organisations or combined with SiteProtector for enterprise-sized installations, Internet Scanner enables you to automate scans and prioritise discovered vulnerabilities to deliver the most effective response for your organisation.
Internet Scanner helps minimise your risk by identifying the security holes, or vulnerabilities, in your network so you can protect them before an attack occurs.
Complete Vulnerability Management
Internet Scanner can identify more than 1,300 types of networked devices on your network, including desktops, servers, routers/switches, firewalls, security devices and application routers.
Once all of your networked devices are identified, Internet Scanner analyses the configurations, patch levels, operating systems and installed applications to find vulnerabilities that could be exploited by hackers trying to gain unauthorised access.
