profiles every network device deployed on major enterprise platforms,
including Microsoft Windows(R), Cisco IOS, Red Hat Linux, Solaris, HPUX, AIX

solutions that collect and deliver a fraction of the information. This deep
intelligence combined with nCircle analytics enables IT teams to streamline
their remediation efforts to maintain the highest levels of network security
and compliance.
