Tenable Newt 2.1

Working on gathering some scanners and tools for CYBERGUARD Project, I realized that Nessus is one of the most well-known scanners for linux. So I decided to see if they had a Windows port. Lo and behold, Tenable makes Newt 2.1 (Nessus Windows port).


The good thing is that this is mainly Web based after the system runs as a service. Seems to run similarly to Nessus (except for the difference in the GUI). The bad thing? You have to sell your soul to get it ( give them information such as valid email, etc). All in all, not a bad tradeoff.
I would have liked to see it free totally without information trade, but a corporation has to pay the bills too. At least right now, I’ll give them at least that much since they’ve always been good to the linux community with Nessus.

    I think CyberGuard is a hit! A lot of good thought went into it and I’m looking forward to what it will produce in terms of better selfware among geeky young ‘uns.
