The Astrum Network Scanner provides small business IT administrators the ability to keep their endpoints secure while saving time and money. According to CenturyLink in 2019, the average cost for network monitoring tools for a business of 100 devices could end up being a pricey $2,656 a year (CenturyLink)†. We have worked towards making an inexpensive and unique solution available. The scanner utilizes Linux-based scripting to scan endpoints and report on any common vulnerabilities as recommended by NIST. This allows IT administrators to automate a large portion of their security auditing. All this scanning capability is achieved through a one-time deployment of the Astrum solution. Astrum is inexpensive, open-source, and perfect for small businesses on a budget.
