Vulnerability Assessment Tools

Vulnerability assessment tools are software and network scanners that can automatically scan your application for potential threats
Vulnerability assessment tools are software and network scanners that can automatically scan your application for potential threats. The most common forms of vulnerability assessment tools are web application scanners (that simulate and test for known hacker attack patterns), protocol scanners (that search for vulnerabilities on network ports, services, and protocols), and network scanners (that can detect suspicious packets and IP addresses). IT security teams should use vulnerability assessment tools regularly to scan their systems for vulnerabilities automatically.
