Visualizing your network with RadialNet

Conclusions

Thanks to RadialNet, vulnerability analysis and network mapping are no longer restricted to text-based output. In combination with Nmap, RadialNet gives administrators a tool for visualizing the network that clearly identifies potential risks. The only drawback is that you still need to run Nmap separately because RadialNet does not integrate seamlessly with the mapper.
