Internet Week: Assessing And Reducing Security Risks

“Network Associates Inc. this week plans to unveil a version of
its CyberCop Scanner that runs on the Linux open-source operating
system, giving IT managers a more affordable platform on which to
deploy the company’s scanner. CyberCop Scanner probes networks for
security vulnerabilities.”

“Network Associates… is moving to give companies more options,
especially businesses with limited security resources.”

“Smaller shops that don’t have the resources to buy [expensive]
Sun Sparc servers can run CyberCop on Linux and scan the majority
of their environments including NT,” said George Kurtz, director of
Ernst & Young’s attack and penetration services. Kurtz uses
CyberCop Scanner, which also runs on Windows NT, to probe for holes
in clients’ networks.”
