     Network Associates, which has focused almost exclusively on software
for Windows NT, is adding a Linux version of its CyberCop Scanner tool for
probing networks to detect security vulnerabilities.

   shortly after they acquired SNI.]

     The company said security consultants and companies that test the
security of networks have shown great interest in Linux-based security
tools. For security audits, Network Associates said consultants preferred
Linux over Sun Solaris by a ratio of about 50 to 1. 

   [And they are just figuring this out? Solaris was the only unix
   support kept in Cybercop when they dropped Linux and others.]

     "Network Associates responded to our security professionals' need to
use CyberCop in conjunction with several Linux-based Ernst & Young
proprietary security tools,"  George Kurtz, director of the Ernst & Young
security profiling services, said in a statement. 

     CyberCop Scanner is the first Network Associates' product on the
Linux platform.
