RapidFire Tools Launches ‘Deep Dive’ IT Assessment and Documentation Tool

New Network Detective INSPECTOR discovers and reveals IT vulnerabilities from unauthorized internal access or external attacks that breach the network firewall. By ChannelPro

Rapidfire Tools, a provider of non-invasive IT assessment tools, has released Network Detective INSPECTOR, a new IT Assessment tool that can perform comprehensive internal IT vulnerability assessments and produce detailed layer 2/3 network diagrams.

The new offering, available through annual subscriptions, is the first Network Detective module that also comes with a fully configured, ready to use, hardware appliance that plugs into the target network. Once activated, the device performs a non-invasive scan of the entire network – and everything connected to it – seeking out vulnerabilities that might be open to a hacker who manages to get by the network edge protection or from a malicious internal source.

The vulnerability data collected by this module is encrypted and can be remotely accessed by the service provider. It is automatically imported into the Network Detective application’s built-in data analyzer to generate a set of branded, internal IT security reports, which can be used for internal consumption or shared with the client.

Reports generated by the INSPECTOR can be combined with reports from other Network Detective modules – including the Network Assessment and Security Assessment modules. A separate HIPAA Compliance module is also available.

“Network Detective INSPECTOR is designed for MSPs and IT service providers who are concerned about IT security and want a higher level of assurance that they are doing everything possible to protect the security of their clients’ IT assets,” says RapidFire Tools president, Michael Mittel. “It’s one thing to do an external vulnerabilities test by scanning ports at the network edge and seeing what is open. But it’s quite another to see what is exposed and accessible if an external hacker gets past the firewall – or if someone from the inside gains unauthorized access. That’s what INSPECTOR can discover.”

Network Detective INSPECTOR is now available for license at the website for an annual subscription price of $1,599. Each subscription includes the free and unlimited use of one dedicated scanning appliance that is accessed and managed from inside the Network Detective application.
