"Network Associates scanner detects security, system vulnerabilities."

"Network Associates Inc. has shelved its Sun Microsystems Solaris network scanner and replaced it with a version for Linux. CyberCop Scanner 2.5 is the first commercially available Linux network scanner.

"CyberCop Scanner 2.5 scans and audits an entire network or individual hosts to verify and report on network and system security vulnerabilities before they become problems."

"Based on CyberCop's ease of use and the results it produces, it's a definite tool of choice for detecting system and network vulnerabilities. Pricing is based on a per-node-scanned basis. A Windows NT 4 version of the product is also available.

"CyberCop Scanner makes it easier to avoid hiring a consultant to find vulnerabilities. However, fixing the problems located is another matter."
