CR/DR vs. ER

The main differences between our standalone/portable tools (CR & DR) and Enterprise Recon, are;

  • Access & usability across multiple platforms
    Enterprise Recon is operated from a Web browser console which is served by a Master Server with our (CentOS 6-basedER ISO Appliance installed.
    This means any authenticated ER User would be able to access and use Enterprise Recon from any workstation using a compatible Web browser.

  • Ability to generate scan reports
    Enterprise Recon features the ability to generate reports which would prove incredibly helpful when reporting status to upper management.
