Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why.

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.

I am not sure they have customer support, as they are a free and open source tool. But since this is a question, I would say the community does a really good job at maintaining the tool itself. New features are always added. And if you have an issue with the tool, you can always post a bug on github

NMap doesn't really have support out there. There is fantastic documentation on it located at the NMap website, but no support to speak of. In this facet, another application may be a better fit for most organizations, at least if there is a support requirement to run the application. The good news is that Nmap doesn't cost money, so if it doesn't work for you and you can't find support, you'll be no worse off than when you started.

The best support for it is its webpage which has more than enough information to get you going, however, there are also a million or so youtube videos, etc., so that if you are familiar with the basic ideas, you can easily get up and running with just a little work.

Nmap is completely free and has a vast array of configurations that it can perform. Nmap is a great tool to secure your internal and external network from most common threats. I would highly recommend it, anyone, that it's the IT infrastructure field.

I don't own a support with them and I have never opened any case with them. I can't give a rate on this.
