The GSM Community Edition is a derivate of the GSM ONE and allows a quick and easy option on Windows, Linux or Mac to give the solution a trial. No particular know-how is needed.
In contrast to the commercial solution the Community Feed instead of the Greenbone Security Feed is used. Also some management functions like for TLS certificates are not included. Feed updates happen on a regular basis, but the system itself can not be updated. The commercial version can be updated seamless and also includes access to the Greenbone Support.
The Community Edition as well as the GSM ONE are designed for use with a laptop. The full feature set for a vulnerability management process (schedules, alarms, sensors) are only available with the bigger GSM models (see here for an overview) and can be obtained from Greenbone as an evaluation unit.

Important note on these Virtual Appliances
Please note that these virtual appliances are for demonstration/testing purposes and not recommended for regular production uses, particularly for more than a few hosts depending on local system resources. The OpenVAS scanner is resource intensive and may take a long time to start on slower systems, especially when run as a VM on laptops.
