nCircle has announced an alternative to Nessus 3.0, which is expected to be available later this month. Many enterprises use Nessus to scan portions of their network, however, regulatory and security policy compliance requirements dictate a more comprehensive approach to vulnerability and risk management.
nCircle provides a proven comprehensive solution that can also preserve enterprises' existing investment in Nessus and provide a smooth transition from departmental assessments to an enterprise-wide vulnerability and risk management program.
nCircle IP360's unique, agentless discovery technology provides detailed intelligence about all IP network devices, luding network topology, operating systems, applications and their versions, vulnerabilities, and much more. This asset intelligence is the foundation for a network-wide, comprehensive risk management, security policy and regulatory compliance program. nCircle can now also integrate vulnerability data from Nessus deployments. Global enterprises that have moved to nCircle IP360 benefit from a solution that provides far more comprehensive risk management, yet is easier to deploy, manage and scale than Nessus or other solutions.
"As organizations reasingly standardize on a single solution for vulnerability and risk management, nCircle IP360 has become the preferred choice for large enterprises due to its proven, scalable architecture and comprehensive functionality that meets the rigorous standards of enterprises," said Elizabeth Ireland, vice president of marketing at nCircle. "Central management, flexible reporting, 7x24 enterprise-class support and ease of integration combine to make nCircle IP360 the clear market leader for the global enterprise."
