BEST IT Security and Auditing Software 2007

Since we have started IT security auditing and assessment, we have tested and used tons of tools, utilities and softwares. A lot of them were discontinuted, closed their code or just bought by vendors. But (hopefully), the best are still alive.

Now, by the end of the year 2007, i become slightly melancholic and decide to release a survey of the most efficient IT Security Softwares for auditors, security administrators and pentesters.

However, I deeply think that every little script or utility wrote by individual developer or hacker is a gem. Just take a look at sourceforge project repositories to be amazed. They will continue to serve us for years to come.

— Happy New Year.
