Penetration Test Appliance

Hello,
we search for a Appliance to secure our Environment. Have you any references for this. Wich Appliance is the best for our points.

* Seurity OS (Hotfixes and so on)
* Exploits
* Opened Ports
* Standard Passwords (Rainbowtable?)
* Networkshares
* Reporting vs. autom. Reporting via eMail
* perhaps you have any other Points vs. Ideas

In the last Weeks we tested Greenbone Appliance, but we search for Alternatives for Validation.

Thank you !

Hi,

I wish I could say these all-in-one solutions exist, though there are quite a few that come close, all of them will not give you everything you might need, but they will come darn close.

The thing is, with penetration testing, there are so much factors to take into account, that one tool might not do all the tests you need.

I don't want to digress too much, here are some great tools that can do much of what you like to test, I've used most of them and they all have their pro's and cons... Like I said, it's not just about one tool:

- Metasploit: http://www.metasploit.com/ (very good tool)
- Retina Network Security Scanner: http://www.beyondtrust.com/Products/RetinaNetworkSecurityScanner/
- Nessus: http://www.tenable.com/products/nessus
- nmap: http://nmap.org/

You could also think about integrating an IDS into your network (like snort for example)... That is also a valuable tool.
