Pros: For getting a quick glance and weeding out easy vulnerabilities is just fine. The management with the Greenbone Security Assistant makes it more bearable.

Cons: The reports aren't easy to digest. The vulnerability checking sometimes isn't accurate enough for enterprise-grade reports.

Overall: Quick glance over vulnerability scanning, allows me to work on the obvious vulnerabilities first, so I can use a proper vulnerability scanner to work on the harder-to-find ones.
