Port Scanning

When done through Antivirus or a network tool, this is an easy way to see open connections on your device. Port Scanning helps not only show your network traffic, but what applications are being used and what data is being sent / received. You may hear Port Scanning in a negative way as threat actors also attempt this process to spy on networks. The best defense here is a good offense and understanding your own network’s vulnerabilities before they do.
