SAINT® 7.1 Released

SAINT is the Security Administrator’s Integrated Network Tool. It is used to non-intrusively detect security vulnerabilities on any remote target, including servers, workstations, networking devices, and other types of nodes. It will also gather information such as operating system types and open ports. The SAINT graphical user interface provides access to SAINT’s data management, scan configuration, scan scheduling, and data analysis capabilities through a web browser. Different aspects of the scan results are presented in hyperlinked HTML pages, and reports on complete scan results can be generated and save
