This upgraded version of Nipper includes a new feature dedicated to auditing Cisco devices by making use of Cisco’s published vulnerabilities along with the latest resources for our other plugins, such as NIST’s NVD’s (National Vulnerability Database). Customers will benefit from the latest security findings when auditing network devices and ensure they are protected against the latest publicly known vulnerabilities.
DoD officials frequently cite the enormous cost of cyber breaches on the US economy and the national security implications of IP theft from the US defense industrial base (DIB). Cyber hacks have resulted in the loss of DoD data related to high-grade weapon systems and platforms, reportedly including the F-35. These losses are unacceptable at any time, but the current US Administration has decided that it’s time to verify the trust it places in DIB contractors – cyber security must now underpin all DoD procurements.
We are pleased to announce that we are offering NHS trusts and global public health organisations free access to Nipper, to help them in the fight against increased levels of cyber risk during to coronavirus pandemic.
The current environment creates the perfect storm for cyber breaches. The need for organizations to assess the vulnerability of their networks and devices to protect valuable business data has never been greater.
