Re: vulnerability scanners

If time permits, you should try to get a demo from each vendor.  The
try-before-you-buy model is what I always recommend.  Every now and
then I'm pleasantly surprised by some dark horse or completely OSS
product.

Here's some items I'd look into were I in your shoes.
- Nessus
- Nexpose
- OpenVAS


Since you mentioned Core, you might also want to look into metasploit or Canvas.



I have my preferences, but they might not be *your* preferences.
Choice is a good thing.  ;-)



Happy hunting!

their annoying salespeople, Nexpose is definitely worth a look.

So I'm looking to justify the purchase of a vulnerability scanning product
and am looking for some objective opinions.

I am partial to Nessus, due in part to the fact that I have used it before
and it's price is really attractive.
I am looking at Core as well - trying to figure out which on of their
products lines up best with Nessus proffesional feed (for comparisons).

Can anyone point me to a decent third party comparison online?
Does anyone have any suggestions for a  third contender for my list?
