Host Vulnerability Scanners
Policy Compliance Monitor/Managers

This includes tools that look at the hosts Operating System and applications for vulnerabilities that could be exploited and checks them against the System Security Policy for non-compliance. These products work in contrast from the Network Mapping Tools by analysing the host from a privileged user account.  Many Network Vulnerability Scanners have the ability to include privileged account to also perform such scans.  A Policy Compliance Monitor advises about what vulnerabilities exist. A Policy Compliance Manager not only advises about the vulnerabilities that exist but will also fix them.  Most require agents to be installed on the target host, though there are some that don't.
