Nipper Overview

Security that keeps you steps ahead

Harden your network infrastructure before attacks happen


Nipper Studio was the 1st advanced and detailed configuration auditing tool in the world. It is the configuration auditing tool of choice, for enterprise clients in 80 countries.
It helps you harden and secure vital network devices, such as Firewalls, Switches and Routers.

  • Detailed configuration reporting, gives quick, clear views of device settings.
  • Scriptable for 24/7 vulnerability alerts, 365 days a year.
  • Enhances enterprise scanning systems & removes accuracy concerns.
  • Audits against industry standards such as CIS, STIG & NIST benchmarks.
  • Our “Best Practice” security audits (combining multiple industry checks).
  • Rating systems and mitigation advice, helps you prioritize and plan fixes.
  • Automated configuration auditing is comprehensive, fast and efficient.
  • Audit systems in less time, without mass network traffic generation.
  • Simple to use. No lengthy implementation investment or roll-out required.
  • Agentless. No additional software or systems to install or maintain.
  • Audit offline, online, physical, virtual and isolated systems.
  • Tools can be scheduled, scripted and work on multiple platforms.
  • Integrates easily with existing systems.
  • Easily customize settings to suit your own policies.

The result?
Nipper Studio is a quick to implement, efficient and scalable tool, that users love. Perform a build review on your firewall, switch or router configurations – discover new vulnerabilities (that others might find) & harden your networks, today. Take a free trial

Nipper Reporting

Nipper Studio has a wealth of different report options to fit your auditing needs.

Whether you are striving to become compliant with an industry standard or to your own security targets, Nipper Studio’s reports can help you achieve your goal quickly and easily.

Security Audit Logo

Perform a "best practice" security audit (combining multiple industry checks). Use rating systems and mitigation advice to prioritize and plan your fixes.

Detailed configuration reporting, including information such as: filtering, routing protocols, administration services & more. This report offers a quick, clear view of your device settings.

Audit against global public vulnerability repositories such as the:
US Govt NVD (National Vulnerability Database) & the NIST CVE (Common Vulnerability and Exposures) databases. Security issues in the public domain are even easier to exploit, this report helps you quickly find and plug these holes.

The CIS (Center for Internet Security) benchmark reports, can be run against Cisco ASA & Cisco IOS Devices. These reports have been externally certified by CIS and verified as auditing against their baseline.

PCI (Payment Card Industry) audits, perform the automatable system checks and support integrating this verified data with non-automatable policy checks. Results offer detailed advice, verifying passes and explaining failures, so you can quickly become compliant. 

U.S. Military STIG compliance audit developed in conjunction with DoD IA user groups. Nipper Studio is favored by many Government and Defense agencies because reports are detailed, verifiable and include remediation in line with STIG baselines. Reports can be generated offline for secure environments and scaled up to audit any number of devices.

A compliance audit against the SANS policy documents. The SANS institute is a trusted industry body which also trains information security professionals. Their policy is a great compliance benchmark to audit against in order to assess your security level.

Nipper Studio Scanner Comparison

Scanner Comparison 

What is the Difference Between Nipper Studio and Scanning Based Solutions? 

It’s as simple as this. Vulnerability scanning tools mimic an attack by bombarding your device from the outside, trying to find a gap in your defenses.

Nipper Studio looks at the configuration of the actual device you are protecting. Being on the inside means that it can see all potential weaknesses, whether a scanner has located it or not. This typically offers you a much more detailed report and stops network vulnerabilities being left unmanaged. 

Using the two technologies in conjunction with each other will give you a much higher level of security than scanning tools alone. The table below highlights some of the differences:
