Need a solution that will scan entire network and do robust reporting on existing vulnerabilities of all nodes and devices; also possibly do remediation & patch management...comments please...thx I'm a NOOB.

or NeXpose. If you can get either of them working, can be quite a hassle sometimes, but they both have support pages on their websites to help you out. Neither NeXpose or Nessus will fix the vunerabilities for you, but both give solutions that you can implement yourself. And remember this wont list all of the vunerabilities. Just the ones they know to search for. What im trying to get at is that just because Nessus and NeXpose say they cant find any vulnerabilities, doesn't mean your safe.

A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.
