From the moment you activate your Nodeware Sensor, it begins to enumerate your network looking at all network-connected devices, including laptops, mobile phones, IoT devices, and network infrastructure. This inventory process repeats every minute, giving you a real-time view into the devices connected to your network.
Once a device has been discovered, Nodeware begins to identify key attributes including hostnames, device manufacturer information, and running operating system. This fingerprinting process is triggered by the arrival of new devices or significant changes in known devices.
With the device profile information as a guide, Nodeware builds a custom vulnerability profile. Vulnerability scans are run continuously against a subset of available devices, to give you the latest threat profile. Devices are prioritized based on a number of factors, with new and unknown device being scanned when they arrive on your network and known devices being reexamined based on their risk score.
Nodeware makes it simple to understand what your cybersecurity risk level is by quantifying it through a network health score. The score is an assessment of the number of vulnerabilities, their severity, and the likelihood of exploitation to plainly show you how your security posture measures up. Nodeware centralizes the vendor-provided bulletins for known vulnerabilities for easy management by IT professionals without requiring a dedicated security expert.
You can then see your remediation and risk mitigation efforts in action as your network health score continuously improves.
