May we know if their is an performance impact to the device if secpoint penetrator is in the process of scanning the vulnerabilities on that device?
It is designed to cause minimal impact and not interrupt with production systems.
So even if you scan a production enviornment during business hours the customers should not see any difference.
Often with poorly written opensource tools if using during production hours can end in target systems to crash.
We have designed our tools to not crash the target system or lower performance.
You can via the more agressive scan profiles still perform DoS and exploits
If their is no impact, what scanning technologies that secpoint do to avoid performance issue during scanning?
It is good written code that takes into account not to crash things.
Only if you choose the agressive profile it will try and crash the target system.
It is also designed to not sent data if it has not detected a service.
So it keeps minimize the data footprint on the network in each scan.
