Renaming of the 'Greenbone Community Edition' to 'Greenbone Security Manager TRIAL'

This document is outdated and just kept for archiving reasons!

The Greenbone Community Edition (GCE) has been renamed. From now on our free appliance demo is available as the Greenbone Security Manager TRIAL. The GSM TRIAL includes our newest operating system, Greenbone OS 20.08. For more details see the release note.

The reason for the name change is to better differentiate the offerings by Greenbone:

  • the community-focused and free Greenbone Source Edition (GSE)
  • the commercial, on-premise appliance-based solution Greenbone Professional Edition (GPE)
  • the commercial, cloud-based solution Greenbone Cloud Services (GCS)

The GCE has always been based on the on-premise appliance GSM ONE and is intended as a limited demo version for other GSM appliances. The name GSM TRIAL will make this more memorable for the future.
