runZero, a network discovery and asset inventory solution, was founded in 2018 by HD Moore, the creator of Metasploit. HD envisioned a modern active discovery solution that could find and identify everything on a network–without credentials. As a security researcher and penetration tester, he often employed benign ways to get information leaks and piece them together to build device profiles. Eventually, this work led him to leverage applied research and the discovery techniques developed for security and penetration testing to create runZero.
Discovery is the first step to building the asset inventory needed for effective IT and security programs. Yet, most organizations struggle to obtain a true inventory of all the devices and services running in their networks. runZero’s mission is to make discovery as easy and safe as possible, so organizations know everything they have on their network and in the cloud.
