Nmap

NMap is well suited to just about any situation, network size, or complexity. Some have brought up the point that NMap's proxy settings need work. I haven't used NMap with a proxy. NMap is my "go to" tool for a cursory security sweep. Once a problem is found, I can perform a deeper dive scan on a system or a network. I wouldn't, and don't, use NMap as my only security tool. No single tool has all the answers. For example, it is not a Wireshark in that it does not capture packets or analyze them. It is basically a port scanner, host discovery, OS detection tool.

ZeroFOX

ZeroFOX is well suited for companies who want to track and takedown accounts that are impersonating them but isn’t so great for personal use - it’s built well for medium large companies who have a large workload.

Cons

Nmap

  • Maybe take some of the features of Zenmap and bake them in?
  • Include fancy extra graphical results charts or graphs or something to show people who you want to convey info too but have no idea what Nmap is actually doing.
  • I don't really think I'd change a lot actually.

  • Would like to see email integration within the system if possible.
  • Would be great to have language options within the system for quick translations.

Support Rating

Nmap

Nmap 7.9
Based on 18 answers
There is a very large support community and a robust selection of add-ons and scripts. Once you get the use down this is one of the most powerful tools and you can find anything you are looking for as far as examples on the web. While not having official support its not lacking by any means.

Alternatives Considered

Nmap

NMap usually lacks the features of the other network scanners, but for a good reason: most of the other network scanners out there are using NMap as part of their system. The nature of NMap (being open-source) is that it is available for use in other applications; as a result, these other applications make use of the NMap source code.

Return on Investment

Nmap

  • Positive return as it's open-source (free) on all OS's.
  • If a person is not used of the command line there are a ton of front ends that make it point-and-click so the learning curve is good. That cuts down on time and manpower.

ZeroFOX

  • Reducing rogue threats may have saved us from negative situations where customers may have thought an impersonating account was really us.
  • Prevention of social media backlash.
