Authenticated Scan with No OS Found

Question asked by Jonathan Pine on Jan 26, 2017

Question for anyone-

I did a map scan of my network and we discovered 29,248 assets. Of that, 20,507 did not report an OS and we are looking to begin authenticated scans fairly soon. I understand that in order to do an authenticated scan, you have to add those IPs associated with, for example, a windows authentication record. If we do not know the OS of 20,507 devices, how should we do an authenticated scan on those devices?


Thanks for the help!
