A method comprising:dynamically scanning a network with a first network scanner;dynamically scanning the network with a second network scanner;determining a new network address, wherein the new network address is discovered by the first network scanner and not discovered by the second network scanner; andupdating the second scanner with the new address.
The prior art reference relates to automatic discovery of new nodes connected to a network by using network probes. The addresses of the discovered nodes are stored in a listed database for sharing among other probes.
The prior art reference discloses methods and systems for discovery of network nodes in subnets of the network by means of network scanning agents which discover the network address and add addresses to a scan server.The scan server communicates the network addresses to other scanning agents.
A method for discovering a network comprising network devices by dividing the network into zones of network devices, and identifying the devices in zones to collect data of devices to form a topology of the network.
The reference describes a system for enhancing the compliance of clients in a network. In an embodiment, security sensor data from intrusion detection system (IDS) sensors, vulnerability assessment (VA) sensors, and/or other security sensors is stored in a database.
