It is able to check open ports on a server to ensure that they meet security requirements


What is most valuable?

Port scanning.

How has it helped my organization?

I have been able to check open ports on a server to ensure that they meet security requirements.

What needs improvement?

  • I would like something more user-friendly to use and export data to various software.
  • Also, I would like to be able to use it as a monitoring tool to check changes on open port.

For how long have I used the solution?

For five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

No issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

I have never tried to scale.

How is customer service and technical support?

I have never contacted technical support.

Which solutions did we use previously?

Wireshark and a desktop-oriented solution. It is better to work with Nmap on servers.

How was the initial setup?

The initial setup is straightforward. It is installed from repositories.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Nmap is free and should stay this way.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

Not really.

What other advice do I have?

Spend time reading the documentation as it is the swiss-knife of port scanning.
