Visual Status of your Network Security

If you have Visio, and you’re interested in MBSA (Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer), this tool is quite nice!

Microsoft Office Visio 2003 Connector for the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer (MBSA)


Do you know the security status of your network? Get a visual. The Visio Connector for MBSA lets you view the results of a Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer scan in a clear, comprehensive Microsoft Office Visio 2003 network diagram. You must have both Visio 2003 and the Microsoft Baseline Security Analyzer 1.2.1 — a free security tool from Microsoft — for this connector to function.


“But Kevin, isn’t MBSA 2.0 out now?”

Yeah… it is.  I understand that a version that supports the newer MBSA is in the works.  Until then, this might be a good way to get a diagram of your network easily collected and done.
