Security scan tools, also called vulnerability scan tools, are computer programs designed to assess computer systems, applications, or networks for vulnerabilities. These tools detect weaknesses in network-based assets such as application servers, webservers, firewalls, and routers. Most security scan tools conduct both authenticated and unauthenticated scans.
Security scan tools are usually provided over the internet as a web application and are available as SaaS (Software as a Service). Security scan tools increase network security by customizing vulnerability reports, certificates, installed software, certificates, and open ports.
