Hey guys,


I'm looking at getting the MARS 55 k9 6.1 and was wondering about the vulnerability scan tools in MARS.


1. Are there any?

2. What are they?

3. What are the scheduling options?


If MARS 6.1 doesn't have anything native can it work with something else?


Thanks,


Brent

The following three security suites are supported in MARS:

MARS has a built-in Nessus scanner, but its only meant for internal use (reducing false alarms by having more meaningful information about the attacker/victim like OS/services etc.) You cannot invoke this scanner yourself.
