Protect Your Network and Manage External Attack Surface
DigitalStakeout's external Port Scanner Monitor enables you to efficiently scan your organization's public-facing network assets and detect potential exposures. With the ever-expanding attack surface and increased reliance on online services, it is essential to monitor and secure your organization's external infrastructure to prevent unauthorized access and minimize potential risks.
The Importance of an External Port Scanner Tool
Threat hunters and security teams rely on external port scanners to scan and inspect their organization's public-facing network assets, which include servers, routers, and firewalls. Scanning these assets helps you enhance security by ensuring that only approved network services are exposed to the internet and that potential vulnerabilities are identified and addressed.
Without an effective external port scanner solution in place, your organization can become vulnerable to the following:
Unauthorized network access
Increased attack surface
Upon completing an automated port scan, DigitalStakeout displays the list of scanned ports, status, and the service currently running in the port. This helps security teams gain insights into all the services currently exposed to the internet. Teams can validate this list against the authorized services and address any potential vulnerabilities or misconfigurations.
