Cerberus Internet Scanner

CIS 5.5 Beta Available Soon

CIS (Cerberus Internet Scanner) is a vulnerability scanner designed to help administrators find and fix security holes in their systems. It has an easy to use graphical interface and runs on Windows NT 4 and Windows 2000.

CIS has been well received by the security community and network administrators for the following reasons:

  • It is simple to use; just specify a host to scan and go!
  • It provides simple, clear, concise HTML reports with all the information you need to fix the problem
  • There are no complex setups; the executables can simply be copied and run
  • There is a command line option for running multiple scans in batch mode – just type “CIS [hostname]” at the command prompt
  • It scans for a broad range of vulnerabilities in Web servers, NetBIOS, SMTP, FTP, POP3, SQL Server, Nt Registry configuration, NT Services, Web browser configuration, finger, DNS and RPC
  • It’s fast!
