NP-View is a firewall, router and switch audit solution. NP-View works offline and does not connect to anything on the network. NP-View has the following key features:

  • Lightweight: works offline and no installer needed
  • Firewall audit: check rulesets for misconfigurations and vulnerabilities
  • Topology map: generate and export a network diagram
  • Path analysis: detailed connectivity analysis and asset exposure
  • Data exports: generate reports and export data towards Excel


NP-View started with a Java-based user interface.  Since its introduction, a new modern user interface based on Web technologies (HTML, CSS, and JavaScript) has been developed and will be available as a general release Q2 of 2021. Both versions of NP-View can be downloaded as standalone applications.

  • NP-View Generation 1 (Java Platform) – This product is in maintenance mode until 12/31/2021 when it will end of life.
  • NP-View Generation 2 (HTML Platform) – This product will replace Gen 1 mid 2021 and will receive quarterly enhancements.
