As important as security is, remaining current with every development is hard, and evaluating possible vulnerabilities across a network can be quite a chore. You need a way to both automate tests and make sure you're running the most appropriate and up-to-date tests.

Check out this open source client/server application which provides a graphical front-end for running automated NVTs written in Nessus Attack Scripting Language (NASL).
