nCircle PureCloud: Network security scanning service
nCircle announced PureCloud, a network security scanning service which combines security technology used by thousands of the world’s largest enterprises and government agencies with a browser-based scanning service. The service can scan both internal and external networks without requiring any hardware or software to be deployed.
Small and medium-sized businesses face the same threats and have the same regulatory obligations as large businesses, but many have limited financial resources and skills to properly meet those demands.
Cyber security threats to smaller business are so serious that the FCC recently issued cyber security guidelines specifically for smaller business owners. The average cost for small businesses, per data breach incident, was $188,242 – enough to sink or seriously damage many companies.
Requiring only a Web browser, PureCloud automatically discovers all systems and devices on a network, scans for tens of thousands of vulnerabilities and exposures to risk, and provides expert guidance on how to fix all discovered weaknesses.
nCircle PureCloud generates a complete inventory of the network and can identify over 46,000 different conditions associated with security risks.
All systems on the network:
- networked printers
- network devices such as routers, firewalls and wireless access points
- IP phones
- mobile devices.
Operating systems and applications:
- Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Linux and more
- email servers
- web servers
- peer-to-peer file sharing.
