PRLog - Feb. 1, 2012 - BALMAIN, Australia -- "This builds on the comprehensive security scanning options already provided through the companies on line presence. By providing access to these tools, systems administrators and owners are able to quickly troubleshoot issues and confirm IP networking configurations while testing the security of the online systems," said Peter Thomas, Director and Lead Analyst. "Sure anyone with a bit of technical knowledge can quickly build a machine and deploy it to have access to many of these tools, however having our growing suite of online options available at the click of mouse is incredibly convenient and just makes sense."
Unveiled in January 2012, The IP Tools sub-site continues to build with some exciting new announcements to be unveiled in the next few weeks. Currently the suite has 4 options including an IP Trace (Online Traceroute), Test Ping, Browser Info Check and a Port Check for a fast and easy firewall test. Peter is staying tight lipped about the future options but hints at some powerful open source intelligence IP Tools and enhancements to the online nmap port scanner tool.
The current IP Tools options come with these enhancements over traditional testing tools:
* Trace IP; maps a targeted Internet traceroute on a Google based map and includes detailed net-block information for each hop in the trace.
* Test Ping; includes an easy to read report showing the response time of any tested system, this can be used to test not only ones own equipment but any Internet connected system.
* Browser Info; reveals information that your browser is leaking to any website that is visited.
* Port Check; online port scan of your own IP address that can quickly reveal if your firewall is in place and working. This is a limited version of a more comprehensive port scanner such as Nmap that is one of the core tools available in the Online Security Scanning component of the HackerTarget.com site.
