Industrial search engine, Shodan, launched a new service called Monitor in an effort help organizations keep track of systems connected to the Internet.
“Within 5 minutes of using Shodan Monitor you will see what you currently have connected to the Internet within your network range and be setup with real-time notifications when something unexpected shows up,” according to a page on the Shodan site.
The aim of Shodan Monitor is to give companies greater visibility into their Internet-exposed systems, which attackers can use to leverage an assault. Users can launch scans and configure real-time notifications in case a new device is detected.
“The Shodan platform helps you monitor not just your known network but also find your devices across the Internet,” the company said. “Detect data leaks to the cloud, phishing websites, compromised databases and more. Shodan gives you the tools to monitor all your connected devices on the Internet.”
The service is can enable users to monitor anywhere from one to millions of IP addresses “without breaking a sweat,” the company said.
