Description

The Big Brother monitoring suite is a collection of system monitoring scripts for UNIX based systems. The Big Brother suite is capable of monitoring multiple remote systems and periodically outputting reports to HTML (usually within the web root of a web server so that remote administrators can view the reports from a web browser).

The Big Brother reports pages are a treasure trove for any attacker who wants to learn about your network. Attackers can learn about other systems on the network, what services they are running, what processes they are running, usernames, exported directories, etc.

With Rapid7 live dashboards, I have a clear view of all the assets on my network, which ones can be exploited, and what I need to do in order to reduce the risk in my environment in real-time. No other tool gives us that kind of value and insight.
