Re: LANguard vs Nessus

Languard does not get updated as often and has missed stuff the Nessus has found.  I happen to like to use both.  I 
think that they compliment each other.

Greetings.

I've been using Nessus as network (in)security scanner for quite some
time and I'm happy with everything it can do. I am however curious how
LANguard compares to Nessus, what can LANg do that Nessus can't and vice
versa? The obvious difference is that LANg can deploy patches and my
question about that is; does it work and is it safe to use on 500+
computers?

regards,
Magnus
