AuditExpress 1.3 is a vulnerabilities auditing software by
Altiris, which can audit all hosts on your network. It automatically detects all
machines on the network, and simultaneously audits them for security. It can do
audits for security patches, anti-virus status, personal firewall status,
unauthorized software and hardware and other known vulnerabilities. It comes
with two in-built policies, which can be customized as per your requirements.
Plus, you can also create your own policies. You can schedule Audit Express to
run on a particular system at a particular time. It generates reports for every
audit it does. AuditExpress has both an agent-less and an agent-based option for
auditing Windows, UNIX, and Linux servers and desktops. It’s a commercial
package, and we’ve used the trial version that runs on Windows XP. 
You can also use it from our PCQEssential CD this month, and then follow
