Network Auditing Software

Definition - What does Network Auditing Software mean?

Network auditing software is purpose-built software that enables automating some or all parts of a network auditing process.

It automates the process of network auditing and automatically reviews the underlying network for compliance with network operations, security and management policies.

Techopedia explains Network Auditing Software

Network auditing software works by automatically scanning each device or node over the network. The software reviews the security control of each network device and component and compares it with the benchmark requirements. Any difference is reported to the auditor and classified as:

  • Threat
  • Vulnerability
  • Non-compliance
  • Operational shortcoming

Network auditing software is also generally integrated with network discovery and analysis features, which enable it to gather granular data and audit trails across the enterprise network and nodes.
