Good Features and easy to use

  • December 05, 2017
  • Review verified by G2

What do you like best?
User Interface (GUI)
- Easy to navigate the fields for scanning and creating templates for scan
What do you dislike?
Adding subnets and VLANs
- It will be better if we can change how we add VLANs or IP Ranges. If you have a lot IP ranges, you have to check it one by one if we need to exclude IP or hostname
What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?
Vulnerabilities (mostly from our internal servers and networks)

Like any other enterprise determining the hole on the network thru vulnerability assessment and passing compliance requirements.
