BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

Retina Network Security Scanner is well suited for any environment and infrastructure that would like to expose security deficiencies across their network as well as visualize vulnerabilities as they pertain to assets in their environment. I cannot think of any scenario that would not be appropriate for this product. Since the product carries over to pretty much all assets in your environment, I don't know off the top of y head what it wouldn't be appropriate for.

Alternatives Considered

BeyondTrust Network Security Scanner, powered by Retina (Legacy)

I've evaluated Nessus and multiple other products. I'd say Retina is right there with Nessus. At a certain point, it's not about if the product "finds" more vulnerabilities, it's about how easy it is for the end user. All scanners right now find about the same amount of vulnerabilities, but some are harder for users to use. Retina has a pretty well-designed user interface.
