Vulnerability management

Bronze Award:

Symantec NetRecon

Readers praised Symantec NetRecon's ROI, integration with threat-management systems and ability to rapidly identify vulnerabilities. It tests the network infrastructure for security gaps, providing recommendations on how to fix them; offers customizable management reports for different audiences desiring different levels of technical detail; and displays scan progresses in a way that reveals the root causes of vulnerabilities. By learning about the network as it scans, NetRecon adapts strategies based on previous results, using that data to test similar components on the network for related vulnerabilities. Symantec's recent move to acquire configuration-management pioneer Altiris stands to significantly broaden its VM reach.
