Vulnerability analysis for IPv6 networks
Security Manager 1.5 is a revamped version of Greenbone's security appliance; it is now able to test devices on IPv6 networks for vulnerabilities and pass its findings to Sourcefire's intrusion detection and prevention systems. The new version now includes "Container Tasks", which allow scan reports in XML format to be shared between appliances. Shared data can be analysed, searched, selected, commented on and compiled into reports.
Appliances share scan results via a new interface with Sourcefire's Defense Center IDS/IPS system. The way the software is updated has also been revised; updates can now be installed without requiring internet access, either using a timer or via a USB flash drive. Further information on Greenbone Security Manager 1.5 can be found in the vendor's data sheet.
The Greenbone Security Manager 1.5 security appliance is available now for 10,100 euros. The rack mount device can be attached to the network via four gigabit Ethernet ports or by a further four gigabit Ethernet SFP ports. The device can be administered via either an RS-232 serial port or via a new browser interface.
