I’m a fan of Secunia’s Free Online Software Inspector — and now the security experts have released their Network Software Inspector (NSI).
Highlights of the Network Software Inspector (NSI):
- Standalone executable application, less than 1 MB of download, no installation required
- Provides all the same benefits that the Online Software Inspector does + a little more 😉
- Detects and Inspects more than 4,000 applications (In comparison; The Online Software Inspector covers less than 30 applications)
- Detects products that has reached End-of-Life support from the vendors
- Intelligent rules for Inspecting remote hosts in seconds
- Much more accurate than traditional vulnerability scanners – and without all the downsides (high network usage, system crashes, false positives, etc.)
