Pros: * It's easy to use.
* It's free.
* Reliable with more than 17 years in the market.
* It has extensive documentation and excellent support from the user community
* Its latest version allows to perform pentesting tasks
* It allows to audit the network to know its vulnerabilities: open ports, connected, wireless and wireless equipment.
* Sneefer functions
* It has multiple security tools that allow audits of passwords, scan the web, exploits, etc.

Cons: * It is an excellent work tool for professionals in the area of networks I do not find defects or negative aspects. only that I see it more for advanced users since it runs on linux operating systems and through the use of commands preferably.

Overall: It has allowed me to detect vulnerabilities in the network in a very fast and effective way. like the ports in use in real time and the type of traffic and protocols used by the applications in the company

Excellent program of open code that serves to carry out tracking of ports in a computer

Pros: This program even in its graphic versions is very powerful, and has options to make scans very difficult to detect by victims or network supervisors. Scan any range of ports you want and even detect the victim's operating system, causing the hacker to identify more clearly how to access the remote computer

Cons: While it is more complex is the type of scan you want to perform, the scanning process can be slower and take several minutes before the end, the speed of the scan depends basically on 3 factors, speed of the scanner's computer (hacker) , latency in the network (if the network is slow or fast), and speed of response and security measures of the scanned computer (victim)

Overall: highly recommended for people who want to know about hacking techniques

Versatile open source software very important to find vulnerabilities

Overall: The absolute goto network scanner

The Best and Most Powerful Network Mapping Tool I've Ever Used

Pros: We use this software around the office for maping out what IP addresses go to which machines. It tells us the MAC address, tells us what ports are open, closed, what OS the unit is running, and and we can have it specify what range of addresses to look for. We used it to figure out that we had a rarely-used thin client on the network that downloaded a ton of packets (thanks Untangle!) and was being used for non-clinic purposes. It's pretty fast too, our clinic has 20-45 devices on it at any given time, and a complete scan took about 5 minutes.

Cons: It is a bit utilitarian, which is nice for conservation of resources, but a little more of input information would be nice in the "Target" box. Took a little bit to figure out exactly what to ask for and how. For example, for a range of IP addresses to check, you need to type out your request with a dash, like 192.181.1.1 - 120. It just took a little tinkering. In fact, it has so many EXTRA features, sometimes it can be confusing as well.

Pros: I've been using nmap for over a decade now, and it's continually evolving to be the go-to network scanner. Main pros:
- Virtually unlimited scanning options for almost every possible scenario
- Scripting engine for automation
- Optimized performance
- Both command line and GUI interfaces for all tastes

Cons: I think that adding it's own TCP stack implementation is a huge plus, which will leverage it to supersede softwares like hping and unicorn

The most powerful scanner is here!!

Pros: The tool is magnificent, have plenty of features and support all relevant protocols for both proper treating and penetration, manual page is also well elaborated (assuming you have the right background.

Cons: There aren't much as this tool vanished most of its competitors before they appeared, however, some Windows support would be great, in addition to more clear debugging capabilities.

Really great software if you know how to use it properly

Pros: It is free open-source software, so anyone can use it. I like all of the different scan intensity levels you can set depending on how aggressively you need it to search the network. I also appreciate that they have a GUI outside of the default CLI that most people use.

Cons: You have to learn a lot about the software in order to really utilize it to its fullest potential. I am also not crazy about the layout/design of the GUI.

Overall: Intense network scanning capabilities.

Pros: I've had great experiences using nmap to scan ports while installing software on servers. It intuitively allowed me to figure out what was open and saved me a lot of time. The community and resources around nmap are great.

Cons: I haven't ran across any issues although I haven't used nmap to it's fullest abilities. I'm sure most issues can be resolved by reading documentation or reaching out to the community

Pros: Works great, is open source so no the usual open source stuff- community supported etc. It provides network mapping for your enterprise

Cons: learning curve is steep. Community support is good, but is not always fast when you are in a time crunch.
