Reading Time: 2 minutes

Scanning your network to identify vulnerabilities is an important element of a good cybersecurity strategy, because this enables your technology team to quickly identify and correct vulnerabilities before it’s too late. But with ever expanding networks and cyberattacks on the rise, how can you keep up with that task?

There are some tools that can make scanning, identifying and prioritizing vulnerabilities easier. One of them is a Network Security Monitoring system or NSM. 

What is NSM?

A Network Security Monitor is a prevention system capable of performing a real-time compliance scan to detect and alert you of existing vulnerabilities across all your desktops and servers. The software also monitors network attacks by capturing data (IDS) to inform you of suspicious behaviour to comply with GDPR regulations. A cyberattack can happen anytime, so it is important to ensure your technology team gets live feedback from your network. With this tool, you get continuous, real-time assessments of your security status so you can find and fix vulnerabilities and suspicious behaviour faster.
