SummaryThe DragonSoft Vulnerability Manager provides network scanning, vulnerability evaluation, centralized risk assessment, reports and remediation in one easy-to-use tool. With this tool, an administrator can easily launch various types of scans from the simple management interface to target and pinpoint vulnerabilities throughout the environment.
Installation is straightforward and is done via a short wizard. After installation is complete, scans are configured and run from the application itself, and can be installed on a Windows XP or Server operating system. We found the application to be quite simple and easy to navigate. Launching top-level scans is seamless with a few scan templates already built in.
This product allows some in-depth scanning right out of the box as it comes with many policy templates ready to go. These policies can be modified to meet the needs of the organization, or a policy can be built from scratch to provide even more flexibility and granularity. It also comes with a built-in wizard that allows administrators to run configuration audits quickly and easily. The only thing we found to be a little daunting was sometimes the interface temporarily froze for a few seconds when navigating through the dialog boxes.
Documentation included a user guide, which details the full product lifecycle from installation through configuration and management. We found the documentation to be well organized and easy to follow.
Cyberim offers no-cost, 90-day, telephone-based installation support included with the purchase. Further support can be acquired as part of an annual agreement, which includes 24/7 phone and email aid. Customers also can access various technical resources via the website at no cost.
With a price starting just over $7,000, we find this tool to be a good value for the money. This product can offer a quick and easy way to do some comprehensive vulnerability assessment right out of the box with the added benefit of flexibility for custom scanning.
