VIGILANTe`s SecureScan integrates Nessus to provide a more reliable security assessment service.
VIGILANTe has integrated its open-source security scanner, Nessus, into its automated Internet security assessment service, SecureScan. This addition to SecureScan bolsters an arsenal of commercially available, open-source and proprietary assessment tools that find network vulnerabilities and recommends corrective actions to prevent exploitation by cyber-criminals. These tools are combined with VIGILANTe`s intelligent testing methodologies and reporting. By automatically configuring the tests and compiling results into a single report, our security resources can focus on helping our companies resolve their security problems, not just testing, the company says.
