Overall Satisfaction with Kali Linux

Kali Linux is a Debian-based Linux OS, and it has a variety of tools and utilities for a Network Engineer and Pentester to perform a real-life Network scan and analyze the traffic through my organization's Network. It checks if any malicious traffic doesn't pass through using the Linux firewall "iptables", where iptables is a daemon process consists of a set of security rules to analyze the traffic protocols in the application layer or even in lower layers. It provides a range of tools for Security purposes to scan a network like Nmap, OWASP's ZAP, BURP, and many more.
