Network Administration

Table 1. Network Administration


Effectiveness of Vulnerability Scanner

Administration with strict security policy

Very effective. Vulnerability Scanner reports whether all computers have antivirus software installed.

Administrative responsibility distributed across different sites

Moderately effective

Centralized administration

Moderately effective

Outsource service

Moderately effective

Users administer their own computers

Not effective. Because Vulnerability Scanner scans the network for antivirus installations, it is not feasible to have users scan their own computers.
