IP scanning is a great way to improve security. IP scanning is used to scan an individual device or the whole network where all the devices are connected. There are plenty of commercial and free scanner solutions available for home and enterprise use. With a scanner one can check what devices are connected to the network and get information about the devices.

When an individual device or network of devices are scanned, one will e.g. get information about vendors, operating systems, ports and services, that are running on the devices. Depending on the scanning tool that is being used, potential vulnerabilities are also shown with recommended corrective measures to improve the security.

The Cyber Security Laboratory of Centria can also offer these services. Centria SecuLab offers customized and individual solutions for SMEs and provides its tools and expertise to enhance the cyber security of all organizations.
