Nipper

Vulnerability Scanning/ Hacking Tools


What is Nipper?
Nipper Studio processes the devices’ native configurations during a network audit and enables users to create various audit reports. Using traditional methodology for your network audit, such as Agent-based software and Network Scanners or manual Penetration Testing, you could experience various drawbacks, which does not affect Nipper Studio security audit software. These network scanners send large numbers of network probes to a device and can impact performance. Only the exposed vulnerabilities are verified, 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 checks individual network devices in detail. However this is slow, expensive and results in point in time audits of only a sample of devices.
