What Does Network Scanning Stand for?

In order to accumulate data of the computing systems, Network Scanning is deployed which is actually the use of a computer network to access the information. The primary modus operandi of Network Scanning is the maintenance of systems, assessment of the security measures of an organizational framework, and curated attacks from the hackers.

The Primary Purpose of Deploying Network Scanning is:

  • Comprehend the obtainable Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) and Datagram Protocol (UDP) network services live on the detected hosts.
  • Comprehend the filtering system among the detected hosts and users.
  • Determining the exact running operating system of the devices through the access of Internet Protocol (IP) responses.
  • Assessment of the TCP sequence number of the detected host to figure out the sequence of the attack and spoofing or TCP.

The method used to gauge the spotted vulnerabilities of the computing systems on the existing network is termed as Vulnerability Scanning. It allows you to figure out the feeble spots in software or the operating system as a whole. This could be utilized in order to crash the entire system or make use of it for unwanted purposes.

Some network scanning techniques such as ping sweeps or port scans will project the data through IP address and mark the active detected hosts or the map what application they are performing. Apart from this, another network scanning technique, termed as inverse mapping is used to gather particulars regarding IP addresses which do get on the map to detected hosts. This aids an invader to gauge viable addresses.

Role of Netscan

Netscan is the one-stop solution to put an end to the worries regarding the network security evaluation of Chief Information Officer/ Chief Information and Security Officer (CIO/CISO). Netscan’s network security evaluation is measurable which means numbers from 1 to 10 will be used to give a comprehensive overview of the whole network security framework. One can use his last device to gauge a score for the security assessment. Various factors determine the scoring matrix on Netscan such as projected strength regarding the security of the network, identified vectors or recent attacks, approaches of the current attacks, etc. After attaining the present day report, you can also compare it with your yesterday’s report to have a first-hand data on the progression made by your security assessment team on enhancing the resiliency of the network security. Once the option ‘Health’ is deployed (from the conceptualization stage), it will give a comprehensive overview of the level of security resilience in comparison with the latest trends of the industry by utilizing big data analytics tool and artificial intelligence.


After gathering data from the Normal/Dark/Deep web, an evaluation structure will be created which will be in comparison with the previous model and a score will be provided on the basis of that comparison. The presentation of our report is easy and less time-consuming to comprehend for CIO/CISO. Let’s have a sneak peek at the demonstrations that we provide as a part of the report.
