About PureCloud™

nCircle PureCloud™nCircle PureCloud is a cloud-based vulnerability scanner that requires no hardware or software to be deployed and managed. It offers the following key features:

  • Thoroughly scan internal and external networks
  • Identifies network vulnerabilities that attackers can use to break in
  • Provides simple, easy to understand fixes for each vulnerability

nCircle PureCloud uses a small, downloadable Secure Connector to establish a highly secure encrypted tunnel between the customer’s network and nCircle’s scanning service, and through that tunnel nCircle performs a full scan of an organization’s network. PureCloud includes a simple wizard-based interface that anyone, regardless of skill level, can use to maintain a healthy security posture across their entire network. PureCloud delivers accurate information about all the vulnerabilities and weaknesses on a network and prioritizes those representing the highest risk with clear guidance on how to fix them.

PureCloud’s robust scanning capabilities include:

  • Web Application Scanning: Scans web applications, detects vulnerabilities for all OWASP Top 10 categories and detects rogue websites, information disclosure, and backup files.
  • PureCloud SmartScan: Backed by nCircle’s world class Vulnerability and Exposure Research Team, SmartScan automatically scans for emerging threats, new vulnerabilities and zero-day conditions and users are alerted with results via email.
  • Cloud Environment Scanning: Scan cloud deployments through seamless integration with Amazon Web Services. Automatically pulls IP addresses for all instances or selected security groups and allows for API access key input without requiring Amazon Web Service credentials.
