Likelihood to Recommend

Nessus

Nessus is perfectly suitable for performing comprehensive vulnerability assessment scans being a vulnerability scanner. It is less appropriate for performing penetration testing since it is not a penetration testing tool, it does not have the ability and modules to exploit the vulnerabilities of the system.

Tripwire Enterprise

Tripwire Enterprise is great for hosting/data center environments and it greatly helps where console screenshots and reporting fill a lot of our client internal audit needs for security and change control.

Tripwire Enterprise

  • In previous versions the management console was a little hard to navigate in some respects.
  • I'm sure this has changed over time but we hope the reporting system has gotten more granular.
  • I really don't have to many cons for this product, I recommend it for every company I work for!

It's very much a plug and play application that the user can go into with limited knowledge and set-up scans in minutes.

Alternatives Considered

Nessus

Tools like Qualys, Rapid7 stack up well against Nessus, but I think Nessus is superior overall when compared to them, given the features it has.
