Intranet Solutions has announced the availability of a new version of the Ballista Security Auditing System - a suite of auditing tools for use in discovering security weaknesses in IP networked environments.
Ballista 2.4 performs evaluations of intranet servers, workstations, Web servers, firewalls and screening routers to determine whether they are vulnerable to intrusion or unauthorised access. It introduces a range of new features including granular reporting, Java-based statistical graphing and a new database system. Differential reporting is a new addition, permitting users to compare scans over time to ascertain whether vulnerabilities have been introduced and to confirm that previously detected vulnerabilities have been ironed out.
Alan Swan, managing director of Intranet Solutions, said: "The new version offers our customers advanced capabilities to uncover new vulnerabilities.
The feature set makes it superior to any other auditing system available today."
The software can check, attack and gather information on FTP servers, peripheral devices (firewalls, routers, terminal servers and so on), system backdoors and misconfiguration, mail, remote procedure calls, networked file systems and Web servers, DNS (cache corruption, query ID protection), general network security, NetBIOS and Windows NT registry checks.
New password cracking has been incorporated within the interface, allowing cracking of both Windows NT and UNIX password files which have been retrieved from the remote host. Also provided is the ability to allow parallel password cracking against CIFS servers without running a complete scan.
Ballista is available now priced at #2,500 for a 50 host licence.
