Are there actually independent reviews of Greenbone solutions?
Of course – we are proud to present the latest report from a leading industry magazine: “IT-Administrator tried the system [solution from Greenbone] and was thrilled with its functionality”. (IT Administrator 01/2021)
In September 2020, the magazine IT-Administrator – a German professional journal for system and network administration – asked Greenbone if they could write a test report about a Greenbone appliance.
The report is currently published in the January issue of the magazine. Here you can read the detailed report.
In the test, IT-Administrator took a closer look at the GSM 150. The GSM 150 is a physical appliance designed for vulnerability management in small to medium-sized businesses, or organizations with medium-sized branch offices. It scans up to 500 IP addresses within 24 hours and can also be used as a sensor for larger appliances.
Everything that must be done in a standard deployment of a Greenbone Security Manager was tested: from the initial setup via the console, to configuring scans on the web interface, to evaluating a scan report.
For testing the vulnerability scans, IT-Administrator had prepared different target systems with different security status to examine the differences in the results. Authenticated scans were also part of the test.
