CSP Vulscan

CSP Vulnerability Scanner™ is a new vulnerability scanning and reporting solution for HPE NonStop systems. The tool analyzes risks and identifies vulnerabilities by checking the NonStop system configuration, access permissions, and security settings. It generates insightful reports for users and recommends changes to improve the security posture.

To effectively audit the security of the systems, the CSP Vulnerability Scanner gathers a vast amount of information from different sources, including Safeguard, Guardian, and other subsystems. It automates this task by providing reports and analysis from a single source for both technical and non-technical users. The CSP Vulnerability Scanner also includes access to CSP-Wiki®, where users can get more details on the settings, security, and compliance implications.

Installation and Use
