Subject: Port Scanner Reports


I am looking for a port scanning tool (software or hardware, open
source or commercial) that I can configure to run on a regularly
scheduled basis, say
once a week or once a month, for around 500 internal servers and
workstations (Unix/Linux, Windows and Novell).

The goal is to produce a "diff" report that will identify any new
ports that have been opened on any of the servers or workstations from
the previous scan.

This would need to be a completely automatic process that would email
out the results after each scan cycle.

Are there any products that can perform this task?

I suppose you could go the freeware route and put an nmap job into cron,
diff it and email it via shell script...

If you're not against spending some money, look at Rapid7's Nexpose.
