Why would I need IP Address Testing?

April 1, 2021

 

IP Address testing is important for a number of reasons. Tracking your customers, employees, and potential hackers is all possible through IP Address testing. Synergy Infosec offers a variety of IP Address tools that allow you to test various aspects of your IP Address through our easy-to-use, easy-to-access web-hosted tools. Our tools are easily located and are available 24/7 on Synergy Infosec’s dashboard. Some of the IP Address testing tools that Synergy Infosec offers include GEOIP lookup, Reverse IP lookup, TCP Port Scan, UDP Port Scan, Subnet lookup, Banner Grabbing Search, and our Autonomous System (AS) lookup.

 

What is a GeoIP lookup?

 

A GeoIP is a tool to find the location of an IP address. This is done by checking what IP range is used by an area, using a specific IP location database. Using GeoIP API is useful for finding the location that users are accessing your information. This information is useful for a variety of reasons such as location rights, access management, customize displays based on location access, general data analytics, and much more. Traditionally, this process can be tedious and time-consuming, overwhelming the user. With our easy-to-use GeoIP -IP Location Lookup tool, simply copy and paste the IP address, press Get the IP Location, and your results are accurately displayed in seconds.

 

What is a Reverse IP Lookup?

 

This tool is a way to look up and identify hosts that have a record accosted with an IP address. This information is useful for a variety of reasons such as identifying users and making sure that emails reach the indented receivers/ email servers. Our ping reverse IP (DNS) search tool is a way to look up and identify hosts that have a record accosted with an IP address. Our tool is different from others because we not only look up and identify hosts that have a record accosted with an IP address but we also measure the amount of time it takes to do so. This information is great to identify if you or your team is experiencing lagging.

 

What is the TCP Port Scan?

 

This TCP Port Scan will test an IP address for common open ports. This testing strategy is known as a port scan. Port scanning determines which ports are open on a network. Ports are important because this is where information is sent and received. If there is an issue, information may be sent but not received. A simple TCP Port Scan to quickly determine the status of an internet-facing service or firewall. Firewalls are excellent tools to prevent attacks and compromised networks. However, firewalls can also black access to your ports. This doesn’t allow a port to receive information.

 

What are UDP Port Scans?

 

UDP also known as User Datagram Protocol is something that facilitates the exchange of information between your device and network. UDP Port Scans check to see which ports on your network are open. Port scanning is incredibly important because ports are where your information is sent and received through. A UDP Reflection Attack is when an attacker sends many packets (information) at a high frequency that consumes the most resources of a device. This makes the device unreachable for other legitimate requests. This can lead to a DDoS attack, rendering your devices unusable until the security problem is resolved. How can you stop this? Our easy to use UDP Port Scan can detect potential issues. Simply copy and paste your IP address into the blank space stating “Enter IP Address” then click Begin! Your security saving results are displayed to you in just seconds.

 

What is a Subnet Lookup?

 

A subnet is a division or segment of a network. This breaks up larger networks into smaller divisions. Why is this important? Subnets relieve congestion and traffic on your network allowing things to run smoothly. The subnet lookup tool is great for finding the number of possible subnets for any network. IPv6 Subnet Lookup is simple searching for the last 2 digits within an extended IP address. What does this mean for you? IPv6 Lookups are searching for the exact information you need using a narrower search for results leaving you with only the information that you want! Our simple Lookup tool saves you needless time and confusion.  

 

What is an Autonomous System (AS) lookup?

 

An Autonomous System (AS) is a collection of networks. It is important to note that every Autonomous system is assigned their own number. ASN or Autonomous system number lookup tool displays IP addresses and other information such as IP owner, registration date, issuer and more. What this means to you. Maintaining your infrastructure is incredibly important and having the most information regarding it, helps you stay on top of potential security risks like entry points and potentially devious connections. Traditionally, an Autonomous system belongs to a single organization/ company. Why is this? This leads to easier process and receiving of information.

  

What is the Banner Grabbing Search tool?

 

A great reason to use a banner grabbing search to reveal potential vulnerable Softwares you are running on your computer. Another excellent reason to use a banner grabbing search to see the software versions on devices on your network. Banner grabbing is used to search for information about a computer on a network and the services (like the names and versions of the Softwares) running on the networks/ computer’s open ports. This is an excellent tool to test the penetration of your networks and devices. Overall, banner grabbing searches are an excellent way to test the penetration of your networks and devices and keep your information safe and secure.
