MARS 6.1 and vulnerability scans

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

Re: MARS 6.1 and vulnerability scans

The following three security suites are supported in MARS:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/docs/security/security_management/cs-mars/6.0/compatibility/local_controller/dtlc60x.html#wp75289

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.

Hi

MARS having in-built VA tool enabled by Nessus. Apart from this MARS can work with external VAs like foundstone and Eeye Rem
