During a network audit Nipper Studio processes the devices’ native configurations and enables you to create a variety of different audit reports. By using traditional methodology for your network audit, such as manual Penetration Testing, Agent-based software and Network Scanners, you could experience various drawbacks, which does not affect Nipper Studio security audit software:
Network scanners send huge numbers of network probes to a device and can impact performance. Only exposed vulnerabilities are identified, potentially missing many issues.
Agent-based audit software requires software to be installed on the devices during the network audit. This is not possible for all devices and can introduce additional security vulnerabilities.
Manual Penetration Tests examine individual network devices in detail. However this is slow, expensive and results in point in time audits of only a sample of devices.
