Description of PromiScan
(Latest Version 3.0):
Global standard network sniffing detection software
PromiScan is a de facto standard sniffing node detection tool which is recommended by SANS and has been used worldwide ever since its release.
PromiScan has improved its monitoring capabilities by providing continuous monitoring to detect promiscuous applications starting and ending without increasing the network load.
Today, many examples of information leaks from corporations can be seen in recent headlines and potential network sniffing by malicious insiders could represent a significant threat to many corporations. Network sniffing enables listeners to listen in on all network communications and to obtain passwords to gain unauthorized access to a server, which could result in divulging mission-critical corporate data. Still, no effective measures to prevent network sniffing have been implemented to date. By simply activating sniffing software, an individual with malicious intent can passively accept all packets, regardless of their destination addresses, without sending any suspicious packets. For this reason, it's extremely difficult to detect sniffers.
PromiScan is an innovative application software for remotely monitoring computers on local networks to locate network interfaces operating in a promiscuous mode that illegally accepts all packets. PromiScan continuously monitors traffic to detect sniffing programs starting and ending and alert the administrator. By installing PromiScan, you can detect network sniffing immediately and can even prevent potential sniffing activities by people inside your intranet.
In the Cyclic Scan mode, you can perform cyclic scanning to monitor network interface state changes. In this mode, network interface state changes caused by starting or ending a network analyzer such as Ethereal can be detected to obtain more reliable detection results.
Slow scanning supported
Scanning speed can be selected. Making it higher allows you to 400.00
