1. Sign up

First, you’ll need to create an account with your work email. In our free version, your address must be the same you want to scan.

Once your account has been created, a confirmation email will be sent to the address provided. Remember to check your spam folder if needed.

As soon as you confirm the request, your instance will be created. This process may take up to 15 minutes to run. When completed, you'll receive a second email with your login information.

2. Sign in

The next step is to follow the information provided on the email. Open the URL we sent you and sign in with your username and password. It’s always a good practice to change your password for a preferred one.

It's important to store the URL provided. It is unique to your profile and will be used every time you log in to your instance.

3. Start scanning

Once signed in, you’ll have the option to scan your domain for vulnerabilities.

Just sit back a few minutes and you’ll be able to get a detailed overview of the risks in your attack surface. This is the first step towards building a robust and thorough security strategy.

4. Vulnerability Management

The results will be shown in your dashboard, which will show all the relevant information to get started. Here, you’ll be able to keep track of vulnerabilities, perform vulnerability management, develop your security strategy and start mitigating findings.
