Overall Satisfaction with Nmap

Nmap is THE tool to use for network monitoring. Though as a Technical Security Officer I do not do any penetration tests myself, I do the occasional scan with Nmap to check for servers and/or services. With its huge amount of options you can scan your network in any way you like.
  • It's quick (and depending on the options and your preferences for scanning can be made to run even quicker)
  • Huge amount of options
  • User community support is ubiquitous
  • Hardly anything to mention
  • If you have a very big server farm, Nmap can help you find servers and/or services that were "lost".
  • Being free, there is no question this is value for money squared.
This is the first product that should come to anyones mind if you want to do network monitoring the quick way.
User supported community support is outstanding. As the tool is so ubiquitous, any question you might have can be answered very quickly by one of your peers (or anyone else).

Do you think Nmap delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Nmap's feature set?


Did Nmap live up to sales and marketing promises?


Did implementation of Nmap go as expected?


Would you buy Nmap again?


Very well suited for anyone wanting to scan their network (with permission if required!). Being a command line tool you need some knowledge, so not for a beginner.
