IP Tools & Security has a discovery mode with an accurate graphical representation of the devices discovered. It easily allows you to validate the devices that are connected on the network. The user interface is especially easy to use. Every device in the list can be selected to perform a ports scan to check which application is susceptible of carrying an attack.
Furthermore, to the above-mentioned security function, there are several unique security modules:
o Real-time, on the fly, threat detection
o Bad web sites: by surfing the internet, or by accessing a phishing email by mistake, the risk that the user accesses a malware web site (that will want to steal money from them) is high. IP tools & Security tests if you have the right measures in place to protect the users.
o Malware: this safely shows you what happens if you connect to a malware web site. By clicking on a session in a list, you can discover the city where the malware site is hosted.
o Packet Inspection: this is a real time capture of the traffic for inspection and analysis.
o Phishing: this is an educational test for your users to find out if they are ready to detect abnormal characteristics in a phishing email.
o Backup: what would you do if a disk crashed or your PC was stolen? This list of questions helps to validate the measures you’ve put in place to protect your most critical data.
