Review NetBrute Scanner
NetBrute Scanner Suite, which from now on we will call NetBrute Scanner, is an application that, as its name indicates, integrates other applications, thanks to which, in our position as administrators of a website, we can be sure to avoid the always annoying security holes in a page, to remain completely safe from possible external attacks.
NetBrute Scanner consists of three specific tools, which we will analyze later, but we already anticipate that they are called NetBrute , PortScan,andWebBrute . By adding the functions of each of them, we can generate a security fence preventing our site from being attacked by cybercriminals, a situation that, unfortunately, is becoming increasingly common.
How it works
Let's discuss each of these environments separately, starting with NetBrute . We must say that it has been developed so that we can analyze a computer or a set of computers connected to a local network. This will allow us to control all shared resources and know if vulnerabilities could prevent an intruder from obtaining our private data.
In the second instance, we have PortScan , a tool that works by analyzing the TCP ports also to be able to control them, for which the ideal is to have a firewall that blocks access to them if you want to be calm. This utility has some additional features since if you want to know which environment resources are being executed at that moment, you must do it from here.
And finally, as we mentioned at the beginning, we find WebBrute . This software has been designed to analyze all web directories protected by an HTTP authentication.
Once you have detected all the shared resources on the same network that you consider trustworthy, this platform will allow you to create a list that will include each of those that should not generate any alert. Thanks to this scanning, it will be much easier for any administrator to know which shared resources are unsafe and, if required, prevent them from connecting to their network.
It happens that many times without realizing it, we share through our printers or hard disks a considerable amount of private information that cybercriminals with their skills can take advantage of to make our lives impossible. This utility has been designed so that never again will these vulnerable resources pass you by, even to the point that you can eliminate services that have been down for some time.
If you want to protect the users that access your website, NetBrute Scanner can also be of enormous help to you since it will help you keep a password policy up to date with the latest vulnerabilities. By analyzing your customers' passwords, you can see if their passwords are not too simple, which could put them at risk and you.
As for the user interface of NetBrute Scanner, we have to say that it is pretty simple since there are no colors or icons that attract attention, but almost everything is based on the options it can offer. We would have liked it to be a more colorful application, although we understand that some types of programs like these bet more on efficiency than on other kinds of compliments to their users.
To take into account
Now, you have to consider that to take advantage of NetBrute Scanner's potential; you must take the time to establish a security protocol that adjusts to what you are looking for. At the same time. This software is not suitable for beginners, but you should have some previous knowledge in the field if you expect it to help you.
And something else that we liked about NetBrute Scanner is that it has a portable version, which does not always happen when we analyze software of this type, so you do not need to go through those tedious installation processes if you do not want to do it. In those cases, you only have to carry this tool on an external storage device, such as a pen drive, and run it without any detours.
To sum up, we can say that NetBrute Scanner is an exciting platform designed for website administrators to be completely safe, both from their own devices connected to a network, such as printers, as well as considering the access passwords of their clients.
